"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

one year apart

the before look and the work-in-progress look -- a comparison:

june 12, 2009. keeping my mouth open for this photo was a struggle. had my braces installed. look at that misalignment. a gum bleed here, a wax strip there. all that excess cement (or whatever that whitish stuff is that orthodontists use to make every bracket stick to their respective tooth assignments).

june 12, 2010. not quite done yet but notice the major improvement. :)

looking forward to eating korniks hassle-free again soon, very soon. i can hope for very soon, right?

  1. jr, I look forward to the time that you will be freed from these braces. 6/12 is quite a coincidence. :)
