I think people who think alike gravitate toward each other. I first met Marianne Pasion on Flickr, around the time I started blogging. It’s easy to like her. Greater than her cool photos, she’s sweet, leaves a comment on my stream when she’s got the chance. On Flickr, with all the great talents, many of them with swollen egos, you’ll just feel who’s genuine, who’s there only for Explore. I’ve encountered all sorts of people – some are appalling, some are simply weirdos (these kind, I block), some remain regular commenters no matter how your photos look like or no matter how you forget to respond to their comments like you should, but it’s only Marianne, who has come to be a friend outside Flickr. We’ve evolved through time. Perhaps through each others pictures, we came to know each other well enough that age disparity has never been a problem, and that it never matters if we don’t get to see each other like other friends would normally be.
I received one of Marianne’s works the other day. It’s a Thought Journal like Alexa’s, only a lot bigger. The cover is from a scanned vibrant abel cloth which awakens beautiful memories of my second mother. I haven’t scribbled anything on it yet, though it’s been inside my purse since I got it.
Well, for the benefit of those who are wondering what’s inside my trademark huge purse, here are the usual contents . The extra space is for the cam.
And this is how I look on a typical day.
Btw, the shirt is from Brandon’s closet, and he gets my totes and sling bags so it’s fair.
And here’s another part of my quirkiness — I’m such a sucker for dynamic colors. I guess Marianne sensed. (Thanks, honey!)
For those who want to know more about Thought Journal, go directly to Crown Printers, Brgy. 7B Hernando Avenue corner Gomburza Street, Laoag City. Read Marianne’s post on her blog here.
