SHE IS WRITTEN deep in Slovenian folklore, stuttering into existence in ballads, songs, myths, legends. A woman repeated, kept in memory by her many iterations – and here I am, reiterating her for you now.

She is beautiful. This is one fact that remains solid, fixed as a jewel in the centre of a ring. Hard, cold, opaque: such is the beauty of Vida.
