The braided necklaces

take my memory to a safe place in my childhood.

The small, but very intimate ritual of having my braids done by my mother , was as certain as day comes after night.

Today, in this very moment, there are children all over the world having their hair braided by their loved ones.

And the world is holding its breath till the braids are finished.
