Trachimbrod: ...Bury me with the truth, and i will die a happy man.
“ I have reflected many times upon our rigid search.
it has shown me….
…that everything is illuminated in the light of the past.
It is always along the side of us…
…on the inside, looking out.
Like you say, inside out.
Jonfen, in this way i will always be along the side of your life.
And you will always be along the side of mine.
Our families will be with us,
and our families’ families.
And perhaps, in some way,
my Grandfather as well.
It is possible i will never know why Grandfather did this to himself.
Perhaps he wished to bury his life, along the side of his past.
But must tell you, Jonfen…
….in this moment, he seemed,
as if for the first time in his life…
…contented to be where he was.
Jonfen, i am sending you this..
…because we have shared something to exist for.
And, of course, in case anyone comes searching. ”
- Everything is Illuminated by Alexander Perchov.
Everyone has a past, that brings them to where they are…..
….everything is illuminated by the past.
….no present is exempt from the past.
One can not know his future, but one can become sure of his past.
The box read, " In case…..“
” …In case of what? “
”..in case someone should come searching one day. “
”…so they would have something to find?“
"No, it does not exist for you…..You exist for it.
You have come because it exists. ”
“…..The ring is not here because of us,
we are here because of the ring. ”
They buried him there with his life….
they buried his life there with their death.
and finally, he found peace; for in his past he left his life;
yet in the future he found it again.
…Bury me with the truth, and i will die a happy man.
You bury a man with his past, the truth dies in the grave.
All that is left after that are just stories and happenstance.
The truth never escapes the curtain;
just like man, it will come to an end.
….Bury me with the truth, and i will die a happy man.
