The Clouds, They Were Blown From a Far Away Land
This is a story about those people, who dare to leave the Plato’s cave and doubt the reality they have known so far. When they look at the clouds, they start trembling and they feel an irresistible desire to find out where they have come from. Like Sprīdītis (Latvian version of Tom Thumb), who went to conquer the big world, they want to know what lies behind the next and after the next mountain range.
