I am convinced that we must have sanctuaries for special happenings, for human growth. If something unique emerged somewhere, we need to protect this spot so that nothing can harm it. The main places of power are not where they manufacture steel, but where people find happiness. And this happens in places where people can create and do it because of their calling, not under someone’s command. It is sad that we don’t embrace it to the full extent.
