Embroiderer Maria

Dear Maria,

The only thing I know about you is your name. I do not know you or your family or your country. Do you have children? How do you spend your day? Do you enjoy embroidering? Do we have anything in common? Perhaps we do: the joy in the small things of everyday life, the enjoyment of brief moments of happiness. The joy of the first spring flowers, the humble little flowers that find their way towards the light despite the cold and the snow. Winter is over, and day after day the sun will bring us more warmth. Do you feel the same, Maria? If I could, I would give you a huge bunch of flowers!

Love and best wishes from
