V. Godsend

I arrived in Italy. After two weeks of seeing people I did not resonate with, my soul finally danced when I met a factory owner in Florence. I could not identify what role he would play; I simply called him my godsend guide.

I paid full attention to everything he said and it felt as if some words held special power for me: clean, clear, and concise. Since I had no idea what design my bag would be, that had to be the starting point. If my being had all the answers, how could I find my bag’s design inside myself?

My intuition told me I needed a vintage shop. Naturally, my godsend guide had the address. When I got there,I immediately felt drawn to an ordinary looking briefcase. Some connection with this bag made me buy it.
