A story told by my mother about a village. A village where she has spend most of her live, since childhood. Years later, she would let me spend my childhood in the same village. Only would she recall it very differently as I did. Back then, the village was still thriving. But one by one, almost all of the stores are moving away to the city. Meanwhile, so are all the fun activities, especially for children. There are no more playgrounds nearby and my old music school has gone. Slowly, year by year, the town is fading away, right in front of my mothers eyes.
