… 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!) …
