Stories of Things: Bonsai of Three
I started looking into a photography and writing activity to get my rhythm more consistent and upon the advise of my bestfriend Adrienne I should start with everyday things. She showed me this blog of someone who took pictures of things and their sentimental value. It made sense. I'm a pretty sentimental person and I find it hard to throw some things away because of their value. So it looked like a worthwhile project to take on, yet again. (laughs).
A bonsai pot of three, this little garden used to brighten up my room 4 years ago. I bought it in 2007 when I went on a trip to Tagaytay City. That trip was an exploration of faith and friendship that became formed because of spiritual bond. The pursuit of authenticity and the perfection of a craft became the purpose of fellowship and camaraderie. I look back on those days and remember the cool breeze and laughter. Silly jokes over piles of food spilled throughout the afternoon. It was the longest lunch I've had and I didn't even bother to take the time.
