Treasure chest made of paper.

Your scrapbook brings together writing and drawing. It contains the representation of things and the narration of how you feel about what you see.
It holds memories to be recalled and thoughts to be revisited.
Your scrapbook brings together painting and philosophy and should be looked at slowly and thoughtfully.
Every page of my scrapbook is a treasure for my life kept in a chest of memories.
What inspires me to create them is the desire to collect and keep the inestimable value of beauty, wherever I chance to encounter it, such as during the call to pray in Timbuktu, when seeing a dog lying in the sun on the Ghats of Varanasi or while watching incoming monsoon clouds.
