Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

7 07 2012

The Camphor Laurel has a warm and pleasant aroma that works its way into your senses without even asking.  I spent a while watching a block of wood spin ferociously on the lathe and gradually become a candlestick.  Layers of the moist and soft wood were pared and stripped away with different tools and different pressure, until it revealed itself.  A bit like our own journey I suppose.

Quite a bit like our journey through life… the stripping, shining, lighting… and eventually discarding.
