“Mi mom is all: the entire universe with all its stars, comets, moons, suns, asteroids and light… her love was, is, and will be infinite. The all encompassing mother that embraces the soul and my whole heart.”

Anna Koloch

“As the Divine gave us the body, so He will take it away, for such is the Flow of Life. Birth and Death are brothers, one making space for the other. All that dies will be reborn, for no energies can vanish, only transform. We die to be reborn – as trees, flowers, birds flying through the valleys. Life is limitless, we are forever Love…”

“My Grandmother, who at 16 years old emigrated from Prague to NYC on her own, taught me adventure and how to stay in the moment. Her favorite phrase when you would forget something was “if you don’t use your head, you have to use your feet.”

“Lots of people around me dread growing older. Witnessing the strength, beauty and charisma of my Grandmother has helped me to not only cope with the passage of time, it has made me look forward to it.”

Lorena Marron

“My relationship with my Grandmother has taught me about the strength women carry inside.”
