"The only thing left in the intermezzos of relentless waiting, are the memories we treasure. They are always present, never failing us, except when we let them. White shutters and window sills frame the black void and the quiet room filled with the anxiety of waiting appearing and disappearing. As wrong as it may be, the passive role of the woman is dictated by consuetude in the Montenegrin tradition and history. She is the one who waits, trapped in a paralyzing passivity, while He, the unseen "predator", acts as a protagonist and the decision-maker in all matters of life. Woman is the sensitive, safe support for the manifestation of the power of the male principle. The whole Mediterranean life-stage boasts the same stereotypical division of roles."
