55th entry, Brienzwiler
There she sits. My dear wife Franziska is bend over the table in the living room and glues stone after stone. Crystals for the unique crystal suns that are in such great demand. Her work is accompanied by meditative music and a unique atmosphere is filling the room. This is a sight that is so dear to me and so familiar.
She has been doing this for twenty years without ever complaining or refusing to do it. I bow my head in gratitude to such humility and discipline. I know the art is our common project. If one of us would back out of this it would surely be the end of the art.
Often – like today – we have to work weekends and glue crystals. Oh, my goodness, I am so lucky to have such a wonderful wife. She is not only the mother of our three children, she is my loving companion. She is unique, so dear and familiar to me.
