THE STORIES OF THINGS: THE BROOCH

My Beautiful Stories

03-12-2021 • 14 mins

'I can hold the brooch in my palms.  I can carry on her legacy and lessons – the way she took care of the old garden; how to treat plants and people. I can remember her relentless resilience, and the way she took care of all of us.’ (Anett Teresia)

SHOW NOTES:

The STORY Anette sent, about her Grandma’s words, reads like a meditation, for an object, but also a person, that remained elusive to her for a long while and is still elusive, or rather mysterious in the story today.

Written like a poem and with added notes, this story leads us to a DISCUSSION about the strength, resilience and example of Grandmas and we extrapolate on the role of women in general and the legacy (often, not material) which they leave behind.

The RECOMMENDATION follows the same theme – the theme of formidable women- and though the character is by far a positive one, we recommend this documentary for its quality, historical value, and last and not the least, the element of surprise.

Thank you so much, Anette, for sending your story.
