• Introduction by Eva Dusil • Editing by Gabriel Dusil • 2014 November

• I loved animals from the moment I was born. At least that’s what my mother told everyone. Anything on four legs fascinated me. When the circus arrived to my town of Košice, Slovakia, I was the first to run to the park. I watched with longing as the circus performers did their chores, wanting to be part of their daily routine. Other children rushed to see as the circus unfolded. My little heart trembled in the hopes that someone would call out, “Hey, you… Yes you… Come over here and help us!”

• The big moment arrived when they opened to the public and I could finally see the animals. I never had money to buy a ticket, but somehow I always managed to sneak in without being noticed. This was the place of my dreams. It was where I belonged. I loved the smell of horses, monkeys, and the wild cats. The smell of hay was the sweetest smell and remains so till this day. In the morning they would feed the lions and tigers and clean the beautiful Lipizzaner horses. The monkeys screeched as I walked by their cages. There was excitement in the air. I was in heaven.

• Finally the day arrived when my mother took me to the circus. It was a moment of great anticipation. With the little money we had I didn’t experience many circus performances, but this one was magnificent. Since I was a lively child it was difficult to keep me seated for long. I was ready to disappear into the stables at any moment. Nobody could stop me from going to see the horses. All I wanted was to caress and talk to them. I had no fear. I would hug them, blow gently on their nose, touch them as far as I could reach and watch those beautiful dark eyes as they followed me. I was one with them and never wanted to leave.

Family • Photo Restoration • 5 • Mamička & Taci • Wedding

• Introduction by Eva Dusil • Editing by Gabriel Dusil • 24th February 2015

• Our wedding was on the 24th of February 1968, and remember that it was a cold day. The first part was a civil wedding ceremony at the City Hall in Košice. From there we went to the big cathedral, Dóm svätej Alžbety. After the reception we went to my parent’s apartment on Krmanova 3. My father hired a cook to do the catering. Taci was responsible for getting the wine. Your father was still in the military at the time of the wedding.  He chose his brother as his best man, just as his brother chose Taci when he got married. The wedding group was not very big – somewhere around twenty people. The wedding party included close family, friends and teammates from judo. It was a happy day.  Today would have been our 47th anniversary.

• A year and a half later on 5th of September 1969  we left Czechoslovakia.  We celebrated your first birthday in Paris, and you took your first steps there as well.  We were there with your uncle’s family as well as your godparents, Slavo and Milica Sykorsky. We spent nine weeks in Paris, arranging for visas to enter Canada.

Family • Dusil • Kende • ©2015 Calendar

Family is legacy.
Legacy brings meaning to life.

Here is my latest mini-project – A 2015 calendar with old family photos. I set out to test my Adobe InDesign skills, and this is the end result. The calendar has a selection of photos that will be released on my blog over the next twelve months. I hope you like it.  You can download the calendar in a high resolution pdf here, or click on the image below.  The file is 174MB, so expect a fairly long download time, depending on your internet bandwidth.

Merry Christmas,
