O Taste and See

--- Psalm 34:8 ---



Been struggling to find the time, inspiration and motivation to make papercuts these days. I forced myself to make "something" at the end of last year, and all I could come up with was a map of Jakarta. It required no design, only some screenshots and editing from google map, lots of short nights cutting, and here it was. I did this in December and never even remembered to upload it. Ay Dios Mio.

Call To Arms

Many might say their favorite tune from Angels and Airwaves is "The Adventure". Mine has always been "Call To Arms". There are a few different interpretations about this song found on the internet but I've always thought of it as a simple yet powerful message that hope is always around and together, you and I, with deep belief, can get there, wherever and whatever it is that is our goal.

Show 'Em What You're Made Of

I have set a few goals for this year (some are continuation from last year) and I feel like I have putting quite a lot of efforts into them. Some are going on the right track, and one particular one seemed to be going really well, quite out of my expectation. But as things were getting better and brought me closer to a grander target, I got very excited and ambitious. I put in all of my energy into it, a lot of positive thoughts and I don't think I have never prayed that much in a 3 months period before. I really thought that the universe was opening  up its way for me. Sadly though, everything I thought it was, it is not. I failed. I lost it. And I thought I was losing my mind, too. I thought that everything else wouldn't matter anymore afterwards. But God's grace is so great that prayers and supports came pouring in and helped me stood up again. 

During the immediate one week of my failure, I listened to this song by the Backstreet Boys called Show 'Em What You're Made Of. I played it on repeat for a whole day for days. The lyrics are simple yet so encouraging, the music is so uplifting and perfected by the harmonization of the boys. I hadn't cut in a very long time due to my workload and grad school projects, and when I felt the love and hope this song gave me, I quickly went on my computer a drafted out the design or this papercut and sat down on a precious blessing of a free long week-end and started cutting. The triangle pieces are so tiny to represent all of the many seemingly-insignificant things happening and going around, but together create a bigger picture, a bigger statement. I love how it turned out very much regardless the neck pain I got, and I love it even more because of my personal story behind it.
