This was the card i made for my friend’s birthday back in June.
I brought some remaining wrapping papers or origami craft papers I collected, cut or hand cut them into small small pieces, then glued them randomly filling the inside of the heart template.Such a fun experimental work as it got.💕
My tribe in Japan made it for me from the scratch making the solution with fresh indigo leaves.
This enchanted gift thrilled me, excited me, and shook me.
Why, because there is no clone / copy of this indigo scarf. The solution and weather, and other conditions bring this only beautiful result on the textile, and you will never make exactly the same result in this blue.
We leave Bleu and Shiraz ‘home’ while we are at work. The home is a unit in Sydney suburb and we have been at the place over ten years. The unit is very old and the all appliances installed in the unit is old as vintage like museum grade, but because it is at great location, it has drench of natural light coming in, and the price, which is reasonable for the size, I did not try to move to other place.
Anyway, recently apartment building where my friend lives got a fire almost in midnight. Luckily she carried her boy cat and evacuated fast so they were safe. Also the origin of the fire was on an opposite side to her unit in the building, so she was exempted the damage to her goods in the house. I was so relieved to hear that she and her fella managed to evacuate and stayed safe, but the news made me really scared at and quickly start simulating if it happened to us at the premises here. Then,
But what happens if something wrong took place in the premises while we are out?
It had been an ordinary routine to give them mum kiss and closed the door heading to work. In the evening I was home and opened the door, then they dashed to me or awaited at the behind the door to welcome me home. That’s our everyday more or less, I thought, but I was wrong.
I was wrong because this routine was just happening by a sequence of small miracles and will never be of guarantee life to continue.
There is no solid conclusion we reached after the talk as to what to do for the real emergency (without us), but the fire incident at my friend have me thought and appreciate the fact that we have been safe and having quality life with Bleu and Shiraz everyday. I am not devotee individual but still think is worth to thanks to something beyond that lets me go on.
