Iâ€™m looking at old cosmetic bag to discover my mother's lipstick, eye shadows and blushes, which she used to enjoy when she was a little older than Iâ€™m today. Iâ€™m pulling out of the closet a suitcase with shoes to find a pair of her unprocurable Yugoslav sandals bought back in the 1980s. Iâ€™m turning over a pile of boxes in the family barn to find all of my motherâ€™s former clothes and my elder sisterâ€™s costumes. Mostly colorful dresses acquired in the soviet department stores and stitched in some atelier or at home.
