From Benjamin.



For what it's worth:

It's never too late or, in my case, too early
to be whoever you want to be.
There's no time limit, stop whenever you want.
You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing.
We can make the best or the worst of it.
I hope you make the best of it.

And I hope you see things that startle you.
I hope you feel things you never felt before.
I hope you meet people with a different point of view.
I hope you live a life you're proud of.
If you find that you're not,
I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

{ Benjamin Button }

Thanks, Chel. It makes me feel happy when my photographs
elicit emotions from people. :)

I don't think I'l sell this. I took this with a point and shoot,
the resolution isn't as good as I want it to be.

Which reminds me, I always forget to bring the print
I still owe you! Looooooooong overdue!
But it's well-wrapped and ready for the wall. :)
When I come back to Cebu in Aug, I'll bring it na gyud!
My apologies. :(

Thank you, Cinds.
This is an old photo and I keep going back to it,
re-posting it over and over because I like it
so much. :)
And yes, those words from the movie,
truly inspiring.

This is one of my favorite quotes from the movie--Benjamin's message to her daughter. I have a copy of it saved in my Favorites and I keep going back to it whenever I feel weak and I need a reminder to keep going and even starting from the beginning if I have to. This inspires me.

And oh, the photo--another amazing work of art from Aileen Siroy! Ai, you continue to amaze me!
