In his comic book/textbook entitled Understanding Comics, artist Scott McCloud writes, “”All the things we experience in life can be separated into two realms, the realm of the concept and the realm of the senses. Our identities belong permanently to the conceptual world. They can’t be seen, heard, smelled, touched or tasted. They’re merely ideas. And everything else–at the start–belongs to the sensual world, the world outside of us. Gradually we reach beyond ourselves. We encounter the sight, smell, touch, taste, and sound of our own bodies and of the world around us. And soon we discover that objects of the physical world can also cross over and possess identities of their own. Or, as our extensions, begin to glow with the life we lend to them.”

This blog is an attempt at reflecting that glow. To capture the essence behind the objects.

This blog is also meant to reveal the essence of the people interviewed, of their memories and personalities. Instead of doing an About-the-Author page, I have decided to post a visual collage, a collection of images of objects that hold some meaning to me. The object in question may be something I own or simply something that represents my personal essence. Enjoy.

Well, that’s it from me. Enjoy wandering through the worlds I have collected on this blog.
