98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.
though a well recognized fixture around several of the city’s chruches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living entirely off his monthly state pension of 80 euros and the kindness of others.

“Paralyzed Horse’s log, July 3rd, 3085. Every day I hear and I see eternity. I am frozen in awe of my knowledge of forever, but I belong only to one girl; nowhere can I see more clearly than into her heart.

Today, something unnatural has slipped into your universe — an octave of death; a tentacle of time. It is the final gift, and it is not for you. Beth does not know it now, but this gift is for her.”
this man has taken captioning this photo to the next level.
