Everyday Things
Martha Maderthaner

To notice and say yes

say yes to what is

to everyday things

to change

to letting go

To leave it

leave it as it is

to notice and give some space

To be at one

at one with everyday things

with the past

with the tales

with change

with letting go.

Translated into English by Angelika Stallhofer
