Part of the weekly excitement of LA Weekend Asian Journal is to record events that matter in pictures and words: its pleasure, joys, even the little crises.
Pictures matter because they mirror the Fil-Am communities temper and taste, their stature and their fundamental pursuit of excellence.
We are enriched or diminished, informed or influenced by decisions we have not made, ideas we have not created.
But the goals and values that have dignified men, their discoveries that have opened new horizons or imposed new responsibilities, show the ordinary as well as the momentous.
Events each week reflect accomplishments or expectancy, worship of love, beginnings and endings. These fundamental experiences make events more understandable and meaningful.
Sometimes the words act more as grace notes — the photos are the message.
