For a long time, the wound continued to burn." -#HermanHesse #Hesse #Siddharta #botanyfloralshop #flowers #bloom #loss #igcaptions #grief #peony #paeonialactiflora #bleedingheart #toronto #snapdragon #syringathuringiaca #lilac
Six long years floated away without you. Funny how days can collapse into months and disappear into years. I'm still quick to tears when I think back to that poignant time. In the years that followed, an irrevocable sense of loss and emptiness hovered above me like sullen grey skies, a kind of disenchantment with the world. I searched for you in dreams but in it your face mirrored the sadness I felt in my heart and sometimes you wore a blank mask.
Nowadays, whenever I think of you, I remember all the love and tenderness. Always, I honor and celebrate your life. In another time we'll meet again with knowing hearts. Love you infinitely, E.A. I hope I make you proud with the person I've become and continue to be.

tonkipoy One of Taonga from my private collections:
Unique big Hei Matau (size 11x10cm), carved in Raukaraka Pounamu with a beautiful kawa-kawa pounamu peeble as the toggle. The stone shows two prominent bands of the orange color with other markings.
This Hei Matau is a very stylised fish hooks represent strength, prosperity, abundance, fertility and a great respect for the sea.
It also is said to provide good luck and safety when traveling over water so is often worn by travelers.
Hei-Matau are also symbols of power and authority which are held in great reverence by the Maori people.
They were used as a practical tool for fishing and were often decorated as a sign of respect for the creatures of the sea.
There are many styles of Hei-Matau from the true hook designs to the more ornamental styles which became treasured heirlooms for generations following.
