Ieva Prāne

Life beside us is very chenging, unstable, unsafe, at times unbearably heavy and painful - aware of this fact, my story is not about that, but about unchanging values around us, wich are eternal, trustworthy and stable. Family, nature, music, colors..., but the greatest miracle of the Creator God, in my understending, is and remains man.
