NAME DAY


On my name day my grandmother got her engagement ring 61 years ago while an accordionist played and others danced on the dance floor. I got yellow roses, a mattress vine and a twig wreath to hang on the door. The yellow roses reminded me of these sketches I drew during summer drinking tea while elm leaves were falling to the table. Today a handful of snowflakes were floating in the grey sky while I was walking in the forest and looking what was left of the small branch lodges we used to built when we were small. Just a few branches. Good night, sleep tight!

    Beth,

    Thank you!

    I think a name day is more commonly Saint´s day around the world. But here it used to be like a second birthday, not all celebrate it, but it is a tradition for my family still.
