“Nature is the cure for everything. Leaving the land is like leaving your humanity. I am over 70 years old. Especially young people like to live in cities. But we old people don’t leave our village and land even for a day. We were born here; we grew up here. All our memories are here. It is not easy to let go of all memories. I can’t live in an apartment. My children live in the city, and I live in the village. Sometimes when I go to town, you think I’m suffocating. I’m out of breath. Immediately, I return to my village, back to my stone house. I just breathe here, and I feel like I live here. In my opinion, urban life is a silent death.”
