A book dedicated to the people who came and been part of my life, my journey, through pains and happiness, those special ones for me who taught me lessons that until now I cherish with my life. A play of my inner thoughts when doubts and anger appear and the joy and happiness when I won over them.
For me, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the metaphor for the challenges and the lessons that the source power brought into my path. But also the real sacrifice of abuse that I do to my wrist when I misjudged my body of the signals and keep working until it hurts. The remembrance of the emotions and feelings I was experiencing while on the process of my creations. The memories of all those bobbins of wires I played with those endless nights, and laughter and tears.
From a young boy from a small city halfway around the world to who I am today and to the one which I will become tomorrow, we all need to learn to cherish every moment. We are all work in progress. I'm working on myself. My journey is not made yet.

About The Artist
Racso J. (Racso Jugarap) A self-taught artist from the Philippines who has always been fascinated with creations. Growing up to be the youngest son of a jewelry crafter, Racso had already been exposed and seen playing with the tools in his father’s workshop, creating toys, or making a very intricate school project. Later on, while studying Hospitality Management, he had already been commissioned to do pieces for hotels and business establishments.
He was given an opportunity to travel around the world working as a chef and to see the beauty, energy, and culture the world has to offer. Now living in Belgium and having to experience firsthand how art has been part of most of the people's lives, this inspired him to share his art to the public that has been kept hidden for so long. Curves have been always an element in his works. For him, curve shapes express fluid movement and it could be dynamic. It depends on how much the curve is in the object, the less curve the calmer.
