The peasant woman sits behind the same table she's sat at most of her life, quietly looking out the window as she has for so many years. Teta Zuzka, known to everyone as "Aunt Suzy", has rarely left Bodice - preferring to lead her life right here in the village. She isn't unaware of the rest of the world or about all the worldly issues. She gets her knowledge from daily newspapers and wisdom from books.
A highly regarded individual within her community, this simple woman was once called " A Madonna" by an internationally known artist - Most likely for her purity of heart and saintly goodness displayed on earth.
Her life runs long at almost ninety, filled with manual labor in a field and around a farm. She married once, had 11 children, buried some as early as at birth, and always kept the door open to all; friends, family, and strangers.
