Never in a million years would I thought I would be following in your footsteps. I have been a singer, an opera singer, all my life and I have created my entire life around music. As immensely rewarding the world of music can be, the business of singing was a frustrating one for me. Lack of opportunities created a void in my life that I needed to fill. I needed a creative outlet to express myself, to preserve the health of my sanity during periods of no creative work. My brain would be fried after a full 10 hour day job and I was falling victim to depression.
You came back to me during darkest times. The memories of us working in your garden, processing plants for the healing elixirs you expertly mixed in order to help others, inspired me to create this little company that is now helping others with their skincare needs. Some of the best memories of my childhood include my work with you. I remember looking up to you in awe of your infinite wisdom, your abundant knowledge of medicinal plants and chemistry. Every seed you planted blossomed into most beautiful and luscious plants I have ever seen. Your energy was inexhaustible, your humility inspiring.
I missed your funeral because you lived overseas. Being unable to afford the flight to say my final goodbye to you is a permanent wound in my heart, my life’s only regret.
This little business of mine is created in your honor and your memory and my love and respect for you is reflected in every product we create.
