It started with a delicate leaf that I found while at Soapstone in Oregon. I placed it in a paper towel and stuck in the book I was reading at the time—Precious. The day before our departure, we had to take all of our trash and recycling to CARTM , a community recycling and reuse center. At the CARTM reuse shop, a photo album caught my eye. The pages are aged at least two decades and the binding is fragile but well worth a $1.50. It’s hard to believe now that I almost hesitated to buy this piece. My good friend validated the book’s beauty and encouraged me to make the purchase.
