Book Page Marker

“When visiting the Corrie ten Boom House in Haarlem (where I got this book page marker from) I came across an object absolutely messy, even ugly, full of incoherent threads and with an indecipherable network. Even if I looked at it carefully, nothing made really sense to me. In some way, I thought that object could perfectly be a metaphor of my own life at that time. My future was uncertain, I felt confused, sad and lost. However, in fact I realised that wht I was looking at, was nothing but the back of an embroidery that when looked from the front seemed perfectly well done and logic. Therefore, I thought that maybe what was going on in my life was also that I was only looking at it from the back. Maybe in some years time, everything will make perfect sense. I am not a religious person, so I don’t look at it from a religious perspective but I still think that it works and I wanted to share it in case it can bring some hope to all those who may ever feel lost. Maybe they should consider that what they are looking at is only the back of their embroidery.”

This little book page marker has a beautiful story …read it…or listen to it!
