Mommy: an interviewer.
The interviewee: Lejla and Erik

Mommy: How would you describe yourself?
Lejla: I am Lejla the fairy.

Mommy: Why are you a fairy?
Lejla: So I can fulfill people's wishes. I can do magic, you know! 

Mommy: What about you Erik? Who are you?
Erik: I am Erik the knight! I wish to defeat a dragon. 

Mommy: Why do you want to defeat a dragon?
Erik: Because I am a knight, of course! Silly mommy doesn’t know anything…

Mommy: What do you like to do the most?
Lejla: I like to climb! I do it on trees, on bars that hold a swing, on different kind of poles. I can climb everywhere. I do it, so I get muscles. 

Mommy: Why do you need muscles for?
Lejla: So I will be strong, and I can defend myself against evil ones. 

I guess she already forgot she is a fairy and can use her magic… 

Mommy: And you Erik? What do you like to do?
Erik: I exercise, so I gain muscles. 

Mommy: Now you are just repeating what Lejla said. 

I realized I should ask them separately. 

Erik: No I am not! I am not climbing poles; I am doing exercises! 

Mommy: Ok. Why do you need muscles?
Erik: Because I am a knight. Doah! 

Mommy: If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? 
Lejla: I would fly back to Gozo because there are other fairies. 

Mommy: How do you know that?
Lejla: Because I’d seen them there.

Mommy: What would you do with them?
Lejla: I would practice my magic with them. Now I am going to dress in a fairy!

And she is gone… 

Mommy: Erik, where would you go, if you could go anywhere in the world?
Erik: I would be on a ship, and I would look at sharks, and I would search for treasure.

Mommy: Do you know where the treasure is?
Erik: Of course. It's onshore, where the cross is. And then I would go to the jungle to search for a tiger!


And what is your dream? How many of us still believe that anything is possible?

We have arrived on Gozo at the beginning of November. Personally, I fell into a bit of depressive state. Maybe depression isn’t the right description. It was more like melancholy. I wasn’t sad; I was without energy. I wished to snuggle between warm covers and not move out of it.

When we decided to go and live in Malta, my biggest fear was, that I am doing something bad to my kids.

We decided that we’ll go back to Gozo. We’ll stay there until we recharge ourselves and our valets. In a way, it is liberating that we finally determined where we’ll go next. But on the other hand, I feel disappointed. It is like breaking up with a guy. After some hard and unsatisfied period of your time together, you decide to break up with him, and that makes you feel liberated. But at the same time, you feel down, because you failed to build something lasting, your vision of the future with him no longer exists. Your eyes are glowing with excitement for the new possibilities, but some bitterness stays on your tongue.
