‘Ooh, Shiny!‘ my visceral excitement walking through the doors of very precious looking Moroccan handmade pieces. I stayed there for a few minutes all by myself in a complete silence absorbing finely crafted artisan work. If you have ever been to Morocco you are probably wondering by now where I was able to find a quiet spot like that. I have no idea. I was completely lost.
Got into a conversation with a boy sitting outside the shop. He told me how these pieces were created by his family. Suddenly they were not just shiny, they had stories to tell.
That’s a thing about IKEA. Nothing has that much soul in there. However, it is different if you bring something from a trip. Suddenly, it is not just shiny, it is full of life, excitement, and memories.
I hope you make an effort to connect with people and surround yourself with things that do not just look pretty, but also has a meaning. Something that cannot be seen, but can only be felt with your heart.
