What we see, what we remember

What we see, what we remember

I find that my memories are stored in my mind as snapshots–quick glimpses of a moment or event. When I reflect on that small window, I then experience more of what happened and re-live the experience. My photos are a way of enlarging those snapshots in my mind as well as reminding me of the wonderful life I’ve lived. I love to share these and I encourage others to remember and cherish their moments and life.

I had a wonderful tea yesterday at the T Room teahouse in Montrose, CA. Here are some of my snapshots and memories.

Guitars & Wood Boxes

Each year the San Diego Fine Woodworkers put on an exhibit at the San Diego Fair and each year I am enthralled with work displayed. This year is no different. There are beautiful lamps, sculptures, furniture and vases but as I viewed the work I became especially intrigued with the guitars and the wooden boxes.

The craftsmanship and artistry employed to make these useful objects beautiful truly adds to the charm of life. Playing music on a lovely handmade guitar is a treat for the musician and adds to the enjoyment by the listener. Storing treasures in one of these beautiful boxes makes the treasure all the more special.

This year’s theme is A Fair to Remember—and I would add that I found the Design in Wood exhibit very much worth remembering.
