...of times & beauty...

...time is so precious..
...it waits for no man...
 
 
Time is at once the most valuable and the most perishable of all our possessions.
John Randolph

...the image of the flower was taken from a plant i used to have...
...it blooms beautifully...
but only for a few days...
...and now its beauty is gone forever...
...only this image remains...
 
 
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
NIV Proverbs 31:30
 
 
 

...my regular inspirational reading material...

Tan Guat Ling, Bridget Lee & Yvonne Ou Yong
Contemporary Art Exhibition 2011

Ten years have gone by since we crossed path,
through tolls and trials, we grew in strength;
from colleagues to neighbours, our friendship bonded,
that though apart, our spirits were undivided;

Our passion for art has kept us tall,
that at every opportunity, we hope to share with all;
as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another,
this occasion would be yet another milestone together,
in celebration of our friendship.

Beautiful Reminiscence


Ordinary objects
Ordinary existence
Extra-ordinary valuables

Beyond the appearance of these ordinary objects, lay the marks of people & events that came into my path as I travel along this journey of life.
