Soon and surely enough they fall in love with Darya. I wish I could transform sound into words so you could read what we heard that night.
Picture yourself standing in the desert and music becomes rain to caress your burnt body; envision yourself naked in the cold and music becomes warmth; imagine the voice is an ointment that sooths your battered soul slowly so you would experience tranquility, so you would soar to the very height and the boundaries of imagination.
Darya sings; love flies; hope is reborn and purity becomes infinite. The merciless rain outside subsides. Darya sings and the sun shines in the middle of the night.
