Emotion is not a Georgian word, but the Georgians are an emotional people.
Georgians are a people who make firm movements and who express their emotions with noticeable gesticulations. That is why perfectly everyday episodes, when Georgians are involved, can turn into unforgettable images.
Georgians are considered to be a theatrical people, and their actions and behaviour are never simple, but invariably connected with some acute feeling or with satisfaction and, at the same time, have to seem spectacular. Georgia is a land of poetry. In past centuries there was a joke that Georgians preferred writing poems to novels, because poems were quick, emotional and direct, giving a clearer image of human experience.
Good or bad, emotion lies at the heart of this country. It has to be that way, since everything is very close to everything else here.
