THE HEART OF COLLECTED
I can still feel the warmth of the sunlight in that room, and the scent of Wilhelm's grandma's place. She was lost in her own world, reminiscing about childhood adventures and spinning tales. As she chatted to us, my eyes wandered to Ouma San's gallery wall, showcasing priceless snapshots spanning 92 years of history. It was there that Ouma San shared a story, one that truly captured the spirit of Collected and how we want to live.
She told us about a lady in her nineties, living in the frail care wing of an old-age home. Alzheimer's had stolen her memory, leaving her helpless and without any photos, albums, or books. But you know what? Ouma San said that even though this lady had nothing tangible, she laid there with a smile on her face, utterly content. Whenever she closed her eyes, the most beautiful flashbacks of her life would dance before her.
Sitting there, a wave of emotions washed over me, and it hit me hard. Life is unpredictable, and in an instant, everything can be taken away. Except for one thing—those precious moments we hold close to our hearts. They're the ones that have shaped us, the ones that have left us breathless, the ones we wish we could freeze in time. They become etched in our souls, and every single day is an opportunity to create new priceless moments—a collection of memories that truly matter. So let's embrace those moments, let's make them count—let's live a life of Collected moments!
