To be grateful, to flow in such wavelegth, is to breath another air. Gratitude exerts a mandate from the soul which tells at the same time the heart to operate in harmony with the surroundings, with all.I am grateful for being recognized among many here. I enjoy what I do, the way I do it and the message that is conveyed thru this ANA website. A house for communicating ideas, new items and perhaps unify what at times seems impossible: people.I am grateful for the opportunity given to share knowledge, potential growth and history within ANA's public spaces. It is a great chance to put into light what we have and also to connect in many ways with others while, at the same time learn and discover many possibilities of learning.

The well published art catalog is titled "The Quest for Immortality: Treasures of Ancient Egypt." Within its pages many Egyptologists and additional experts have exposed for future generations their insights and knowledge regarding the ancient Egyptians and their path thru earthly time. I chose to read again Dr. Erik Hornung's exquisite esssay titled: "Exploring the Beyond" enclosed in this great publication. Dr. Erik Hornung (1933) is a Swiss born World reknown Egyptologist. My writing is a humble way to connect a study of the belief in an afterlife with a numismatist item: the token.One of the most intriguing and fascinating revelations might come from the ancient Egyptians and their belief in the afterlife. Many cultures after them incorporated this thought of a realm earned with a granted passage by a "token" of material value given to a deity or "overseer" who led the soul of a fervent or misfortunate being (as justified beliefs applied to individuals) into his/her new existence.
