Thirteenth fable. About sky and earth.
People were for a long time dreaming of the sky, as one day …
people fell into the sky.
It was a wonderful feeling – to lie in the sky, to cuddle in the clouds, to play with the stars.
But, after a time, people began to miss the land, the trees and flowers, the sea and fish, the animals, especially their pets.
And so, one by one, people began to drag the land with its flora and fauna into the heavens and to plant it there until they had dragged the whole earth into the sky.
The sky had no choice than to refill the area where the earth had been.
And people realized that they felt happiest with the earth under their feet and with the sky over their head.
