′′ Grandma, how do you deal with pain?”
′′ With my hands, honey. If you do it with your mind pain instead of softening, it hardens even more.”
′′ With my hands grandma?”
′′ Yes. Our hands are the antennas of our soul. If you make them move by sewing, cooking, painting, playing or sinking them in the land, send care signals to the deepest part of you. And your soul is soothing because you’re giving it attention. So he doesn’t need to send you pain to get noticed anymore.”
′′ Really hands are so important?”
′′ Yes, my child. Think of newborns: they start to know the world thanks to the touch of their hands. If you look at old people’s hands they tell you about their life more than any other body part. Everything that is handmade is said to be made with the heart. Because it’s really like that: hands and heart are connected. Massagers know it well: when they touch another person’s body with their hands they create a deep connection. It’s precisely from this connection that healing comes. Think of lovers: when their hands touch, they make love in the most sublime way.”
′′ My hands grandma… how long I haven’t used them like this!”
′′ Move them my darling, start creating with them and everything inside you will move. The pain won’t pass. But it will turn into the most beautiful masterpiece. And it won’t hurt anymore. Because you managed to embroidery its essence.”
