Not So Simple

August 31, 2008

On the eve of his return to the Big City to the Northwest, Dedushka Yevgeny shares a stack of his secret-recipe honey blinis with Orange Bear.

After his second helping, Orange Bear sits back and pats his stomach. “Ah, the simple things…”

Dedushka stands up. It’s at moments like these that he loves to quote the ballet master Lermontov from his favorite movie The Red Shoes (celebrating its 60th anniversary this year):

“A great impression of simplicity can only be achieved by great agony of body and spirit.”
