I also visited Mano's blog.
Reading her post of that day, Sammelsurium, my attention was caught by a beautiful old key.
A key bearing the initals G W.
These were the initials of my father who passed away October 2008, i spontaneously wrote her that.
The key opened a memory room in my head (that room is opened regularly, but not by a key).
This morning a packet arrived.
A packet with German stamps, a packet from Mano.
I was very surprised. Excited i opened the packet....and there it was... the key.
Mano made a beautiful small work of art .
Emotions overwhelmed me, i felt deeply moved and still do.
I felt like Alice, i felt a caring heart, i felt sun, i felt love.
This is a key story i will never forget.
Dear Mano, thanks again, you are a lovely lady!
Your gift will be cherished.
My father and me.
My father, smaller sister and me.
