(Benedikte Esperi 2022)

Minnenas trädgård inbjuder till stillhet,

kontemplation, eftertänkande och lågmälda samtal…. 

i den ekande tomheten av sorg, ovisshet och förlust.

 

 

Med värme….


Garden of  Memories offers peace, silence, contemplation and quiet dialogues...

through echoing emptiness  of sorrow, sadness, uncertainty and loss.


With warmth...
