Epitaph:

That soul God has created in his own image
Is undisturbable, it cannot be lost
Our earthly life is a seed of eternity
Our body dies but the soul cannot die

 

Nette Ornbak - 800

Surely God would not have created such a being as man, with an ability to grasp the infinite, to exist only for a day!
No, no, man was made for immortality.
Lincoln

    I met Nette in Denmark, she was A Famous Dressmaker, I was the sister to my eldest brother to her, not yet a student. It was the winter of 1985, Christmas time in Denmark, like an Anderson Fairytale. Nette was in her prime, with a beautiful young apprentice, actors coming and going, students being entertained. She held to a standard of perfection that was telling of her refined alchemy. I was welcomed by her with a motherly warmth and attention to educate; what she did so well. She encouraged the musical instruction I followed at the time, the flute. As the years rolled on, Nette kept that sparkle and determination in her telling eyes and bright smile, sharing her beautiful being.
