Quite often, the simplest things set off the most complex memories.
I kept it to the barest essentials for #MYOH2017: all black TOP with two pins harking back to this year's theme, and my favorite decade: The 90s!
The yellow LEGO piece was literally the building block of my imagination. Growing up an ambivert, I was both in the vortex of action and in some comfortable corner of the SHS-B library devouring Chinese, Greek, Norse and Filipino mythology. LEGO allowed me to translate these worlds into tangible fortresses, mountains, weapons. Nurturing this imagination was the best thing to happen to me. I eventually became a career ambivert: I'm in both science and the arts. And all because I did not believe in limits.
The red 8-bit heart is a given, an ode to my perennially broken heart and the resulting #3AM musings. They also remind me of Papa's penchant for bringing home the decade's latest gadgets. We were the first home in Pleasant Homes to have both the Betamax and Atari, the latter a virtual world rendered in 8-bit imagery.
