Have you ever watched someone knot a carpet? It requires meticulous handwork by the weaver who needs to pick the right threads in the right colours and place the knots carefully and evenly so that an image is created.


Only after several hours of work parts of the final picture can be recognised.


This process is similar to life, since we also aim to create certain life images by utilizing our talents. Sometimes we can only later recognise the important role a person or situation played in our life thus far, and a specific part of the bigger motif becomes clear.

I’m so happy that my wife has remembered our common dream.

It has once again become our common theme and it provides us direction no matter what obstacles lie ahead.

It was important to see the times at which I excelled most at my job, and how many years are still left to be filled. It was also good to visualize the goals we have in common and what we can/need to do today to achieve them.

I have been made aware to all of this through the tapestry of my life and continue to work on myself every day. – C.E

Simply gave me a good overview of the past and the future of my life by providing a strong foundation. Thank you so much! – G.O.

It opened my eyes to the fact I need to prepare myself for my pension far more. It also gave me clarity over all the good options I have with my skill set. – F.B.

While drawing, different images came up that I wasn’t aware of before. The fact that my father had invested so much into me at the young age of five is something I will forever be grateful for. I was only able to see this connection through the use of illustration and symbols. Thank you. –  A.B.
