Since Eva was here I’ve started playing with beads and making malas. My first was Eva’s mala. I took my time with it, finding just the right adornments to make it representative of Eva and the bond we share. I love that her lucky lapis stone has a resting place on the strand. It has so much meaning. I use the beads in meditation, to connect with Eva.
I’m fumbling, and learning and really enjoying the process of creating. Channeling my grief into something tangible has been another way to heal since losing Eva. I’m excited to create for others in her honor.
