I had the pleasure and the honour to attend the presentation of Mary Karambati-Kolovou's new book "Mirroring" which took place on 21 June 2023 at "Thesis" in Monastiraki. I would like to say a big thank you for the great honor the author gave me to talk about her book. When I read it I felt all the emotions. I was moved by the story of Grandpa Angelos, I laughed with Noda, and I felt nostalgic with the first love. I was angry with the story of Sophia and the voice that was silenced, and I remembered with love the things of my own grandmother, and I was touched with spring and felt sadness for the love that went unrequited.
Each story of Mary's reflections is also a story with a moral. About love, loss, selfishness, abuse and second chances. About the nostalgia that hits us when we think of a loved one or when we remember a beautiful moment from our memory bank. About how easily we often judge people without knowing what lies behind their silence or coldness, and about how willing we are to give a second chance. About the injustice that life hides, but also about its beauty. For the other us that speaks to us and sometimes we don't listen.
