What a wonderful idea! My lovely son Luc and my dear assistant Käthe invited 49 of my friends to create postcards for my 49th birthday. Why 49? David Tartakovers postcard says: »The seventh year in a seven-year cycle is called in judaism Shmita during which land in Israel must lie fallow and debts are canceled. 49 is 7 cycles of 7 years, cycles of Shmita. When you reach 49 it is an opportunity for a thorough restart, and an invitation to begin a new life.« A big thank you, my dear friends, for giving me a glimpse into a mirror with 49 faces. Elisabeth.
