No Flowers at the Florist

About 10 years ago I went to India. Almost on the first day I encountered a really nice person from Germany. I spent a my days buying fabric, making patterns and designing clothes or painting walls. Me and her had a very creative connection and we'd also end up visiting fabric shops together. She had bought a sewing machine and kept making really cool stuff too. Once, she gave me a bag she had sown. I painted it and gave it back to her for her birthday much later. I think she liked it. She knitted a shal for me...

About a year in, I knew she was going to go back to Germany and I might never see her again. At times our communication didn't need any words. I wanted to get her some flowers and I thought of sunflowers. Unfortunately there weren't any florists in the area that sold sunflowers. I had no idea sunflowers were actually her favorite flowers. I decided to paint her in a field of sunflowers and gave her the painting before she left.

We met for a short walk in Berlin about 4 years later.

I recently found a copy of the original canvas that I had scanned and printed in an old box. I decided to take a picture with my phone before the box went back into my attic.

Gorgeous painting - you are so talented! There's a real sense of spirit in this post. Beautiful. I just planted some sunflower seeds today and thought of my friend who died, Sally. She was a sunflower girl, and all who knew her plant sunflowers every year in her memory.

@riverflows :) So happy to get a comment. Yeah, got nostalgic about all these cool fabrics and the creative Indian vibe with all these awesome hippies I met there. It sort of reminds me where I come from and that I should actually be posting more about my #needleworks. Hive is so inspiring because our citizens share such creative work that invokes our spirit. I can name countless times when one of your posts became a significant moment in my life and inspired me. Specially my interest in foraging for herbs and herbal remedies that is such a big part of my life. I'd say that I have more than put so much of enthusiasm and spirit in what we are all doing here together. So inconspicuously we seem to have created a break away community with a very distinctive common mentality towards freedom and liberty. I very strongly believe in this community. You are a glowing spirit here and your Aura shines on this blockchain! May the sunflowers smile at everyones eternal spirit, for it is the only thing that remains in the ephemeral nature of material things. Spirit, love, light...

Thanks for your comment @abbey877. These moments take a certain space. At times i wish we could all just escape in these spaces. At heart i think humans are all made to create. It's all love.
