Twenty years ago Tolik began writing poetry. Approximately at the same time he entered the Medical Institute. Twenty years ago he looked into future with hope. Today the future appeared and the hope disappeared. He has been working as a psychotherapist in a little municipal clinic for about 10 years. He is tired of his patients and is irritated by his bosses. Forty years old is a perfect age to change one's life.
