    Understated.I really don t have any useful or stunning observations This story is peaceful, which when one thinks about all the things going on slavery, subsistence farming, grief that it would seem overwhelming But it s not There s an acceptance, and unspoken choices that give the feeling of quiescence Too short to rate higher, I feel as if we ve just met Petre and Anton, and while there is a resolution of sorts it feels like no

    Beautiful Wow this was beautiful in its simplicity Not a lot going on but it feltpoignant I do wish we had a less abstract ending but maybe that s the beauty of it It spelled out a lot of possibilities so how it ends is up to each reader Beautiful

    Anton bought a man A slave Though he didn t exactly treat Petre like one, despite the collar on his neck They ate at the same table and Petre was somewhat comfortable Well, it was certainly better then in a mine shackled to the rocks There was so much work to do on the land and around the little cottage They needed to split the work, but Anton was reluctant to leave Petre alone, he didn t trust the man at first, he thought Petre would run once
