Why a Field Is a Lake? A fairy-tale about the secret of Lake Cerknica
The fairy-tale tells the story about a sensitive girl who couldn’t stop crying and no one could stop her tears. But there were so many tears that they flooded the house and were spilling into the near-by stream. Only the travelling storyteller could comfort her with her stories. The girl was most interested in the one about a boy who used to live on the top of a mountain, but the farmers unjustly chased him away and out of his home claiming that he cast a shadow on their valley. Before the travelling storyteller would leave and the girl’s eyes would fill up with tears again, she told her a secret. A secret about how to make the world better and fairer.
