Nondik sortzen da haizea


Txiki-txikia nintzenean, dena nekien nik. Banekien eguzkia nondik sortzen zen eta nondik ezkutatzen. Banekien masusta gozoenak non biltzen ziren. Banekien gure katu Xaxa non etzaten zen gozotan. Ia dena nekien nik txikia nintzela, gauza bat izan ezik: ez nekien nondik sortzen den haizea.

When I was little I knew everything. I knew where the sun came up and where it set. I knew where to find the tastiest blackberries. I knew where our cat Xaxa liked to hang out. When I was little I knew nearly everything, except for one thing: I didn’t know where the wind came from.


Elkar publishing house was founded in 1975, with the aim of promoting Basque culture. Since then it has been very active as both a publisher and a record label, promoting the literary and musical works of writers and musi- cians and, at the same time, helping to fill gaps in and fulfil the needs of our culture. Thanks to the work carried out in these years, Elkar’s catalogue cur- rently holds more than 2,500 works.
