Alexei and Sasa

Alexei, originally uploaded by gilfling.

Alexei lives in the heart of the forest, and spends his days paddling in rivers, singing folk songs to any being that will listen and skimming stones. He only returns to his old wooden cottage at dusk where he carves animals out of fallen branches displaying them in ever nook and cranny of his cosy dwelling.

Sasa talks to the bees and tells them her troubles in her lilting, sing-song voice. She sits amongst the village of hives on her patchwork blanket and sews and sings and sings and sews. The walls of her home are covered with sun-faded quilts that she embroiders with bees and wildlowers during the endless days of summer.
