is something that has survived the passage of time. A personal
relic is what has survived the passage of time in one's own life
Most keepsakes are emotional and spiritual while also being physical.
The portfolio called "Personal Relics" is a visual record of
the keepsakes that describe my underlying passion to be alive, my spirit,
those things that have persisted over time, that I hadn't paid much attention
to, until recently. This portfolio is a prayer of thanks to my own spirit
and a celebration of its persistence. It is like opening my jewelry box
and seeing all the beautiful gems that I had forgotten were mine.
