My family name Kranias is a strong tree that grows high in the mountains of mainland Greece, the home of my ancestors. In the ancient Greek myth of Daphne, a water nymph is transformed into a tree for protection and empowerment. I imagine myself as a tree growing roots, a deep network of strength that holds me to the earth. My branches move and dance in the wind, shaping me anew. May this scarf incite you to grow strong roots and dance freely along your life path.
