A Large Life (She filled the place w flowers up to the parking lot): Chit Estella

She filled the place with flowers all the way up to the parking lot. The chapel and lobby was inundated  with pure and white gleaming blossoms that  overflowed to the  driveway. Chit Estella lived a large life, and by that we don’t mean  Oprah’s definition of a “large life” when she refers to her friends who own private jets and make three designer gown changes inside of one party (Mariah making a gown change walking away from an awards night,  changing again into another beaded dress on her way to a party,  slipping  into another sequined outfit to walk five meters of paparazzi to her car from the party, and Oprah said it was because  “she lived large…” or “she lived a large life”. No. That’s not what we mean.)

      Chit in her simple but exquisite clothes  unintentionally lived a large life as she documented and reported on government functions that should be accounted for  by public  officials – events that affected the lives of a large number of people – making the public more watchful of those who ruled them and  more capable of determining their destiny. 

      How large could your life get when the landscape of a country changes with a turn of a well-researched page?

(albeit, without meaning to,  as she joined our food binges, Christmas rehearsals; translating poetry for a colleague’s  birthday)
