  • "Mommy, do you know how the edelweiss was born?"

    "No, I do not Matilde, but if you want, I invent a story..."

    "Mommy, please don’t. It’s my turn to tell you a story..
    Edelweiss are shooting stars.
    Shooting stars do not vanish when falling on the mountains,
    but they transform themselves into flowers, the edelweiss.
    And these flowers must not be collected,
    that would mean destroying the dreams
    of those who wished upon that star”
