1 black and white OOAK & Gossip – Music for Men
Today I wear just a mini combo consisting of 5 Trollbeads I inherited – accompanied by a ring I was gifted by my mother, however, the pics don’t do the ring justice at all 🙁
… for these 5 Trollbeads.
Short version: I inherited these 5 Trollbeads from K., who died at age 37, after fighting cancer for 7 years. She was born 1974, just like myself.Every now and then I can not even look at “her” beads, it’s just too much for me to bear since they just palpably demonstrate the impermanence of life to me …
But most of the time I am grateful to have known her, to have been able to accompany her on a short part of her life’s path.
This Buddha I also inherited from her:
He was the first thing that came to my mind when her parents, after she passed away, asked friends & family what they would like to have from K.’s belongings. Her mother then told me that K. received this beautiful Buddha from her godmother, from a trip to India.
… for this sight. I bought this beautiful vase 2 months ago – it was love at first sight since it has just the right red, even though there is no sun shining (just imagine how it glows with the sun shining through it!) …
