This Silk Ribbon is inspired by the book “‘The sweetness of life’ by Françoise Héritier. How often do we feel truly alive? We spend one-third of our lives asleep. As adults, most of our waking time is devoted to activities where we are concentrating on a task to be achieved. We can spend hours, days, or even weeks without pausing in our busyness to appreciate the vivid experience of being a living, thinking, feeling animal.

The French anthropologist Françoise Héritier lists some of the “little things” we shouldn’t forget to do and enjoy. Hereby, some of the designer’s favorite items on Héritier’s list:

Smiling at someone who’s not expecting it

Feeling your taste buds react to ginger

Coming to terms with what you hate

Touching sensitive plants

Making a ladybird walk on your finger

Regretting that I don’t look good in a hat

Sometimes remaining naive and not minding

Feeling carried away by a heavy, rhythmic swell at sea and forgetting that everything is finite

Rebelling against stupidity at the right moment

Liking the look of windmills

Planting a big kiss on the nose of a cat who took offense

Feeling sudden outbursts of joy as you might feel fits of heat
