Years ago I was taking an art class in college, and a friend (an artist) suggested that I think about any objects that carry significance for me. I only remember that "chair" made the list. I went around campus with a camera taking pictures of benches and chairs, and it helped. I thought of that the other day when I took this shot.
For those of you who are interested, I've started a blog with some notes about my own spiritual journey. I've hesitated to write much about that here for reasons I'm sure many will understand. If you're interested, stop by and read my first post at: brushed.org
