Allow me  say a few words about the title where it is based on a true story. When I was 14 years old, I had  bicycle accident, I broke my kneecap and they took me to the hospital. There I met a old guy with the same name as me (Kostas), we were sitting on the balcony and he was telling stories. It was autumn and it started to rain. He said, it's raining for me, so it's soft ground. The soil must be soft, it will be soft with the rain down there. In the morning I did not see Mr. Kostas in bed. I asked where he was and they told me they took him in the middle of the night because he passed away. Somehow he understood that he was going to die. I have never forgotten him .

A beautiful and very moving story, Kostas. A beautiful image of the rain drops on this leaf, and may the ground be soft for those who pass each day, and those who grieve for their loved ones.

Beautiful image (love the details and textures), and a fine story, well-told.
