WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: HOME

on February 9, 2013

Hello.

How are you? I sincerely hope that you are all well and healthy and happy. If you’ve had a tough week, you may want to have a look at this: http://posters-for-good.tumblr.com/image/542977597. It helped me put my life in the right perspective. Not to say that our problem is nothing, it’s just…maybe there are still things to be grateful for regardless. For my part, I am happy I have you all to write to. Otherwise, I’d probably have been depressed and pay good money for some psychiatrist who wouldn’t have been half as fun as friends like you 🙂

I recently decided to join an interesting stress-avoidance activity on WordPress. It’s the Weekly Photo Challenge. The people at WordPress give us a theme every Friday for us to interpret into photograph. It is really fun for me. This week the theme is HOME. It was rather surprising for me that when I asked myself what is ‘home’ to me, I could not give a straight answer. I have been what one of my aunts called ‘long footed’. It means that I have restless feet and spend the bigger portion of my time outside the house. So, I concluded that ‘home’ to me could not be a building or even a city. When I gave it some more thoughts, I realised that what is home to me is people. People that I enjoy spending time with doing various stuffs from going to concerts, eating, drinking, laughing, crying, talking, playing or even just sitting together in silence. And to me, those people are basically family. So, home is family. And in line with that, the snapshot for this week is a photo of a family of three: Father, Mother, and Daughter. I took this picture when I went to Bali last year. I think it is one of the most beautiful moments I have ever witnessed.

So, what about you? What is your stress-avoidance activity? And what is home to you? You know you can always write to me and tell me all about it 🙂

Have a great weekend (or a great week ahead if you read this on Monday) and happy Chinese New Year to my Chinese friends.

  1. A loving family makes up a home and this picture sums up what that is all about. Beautiful.

  2. To stress avoid, I turn off my phone and computer and watch comedy Dvd’s like a hermit.
