Looking Up

“We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made or only just happened.” ~Mark Twain

Do you take up to look up and see how beautiful the sky is?

Almost sunset photo while waiting for my children at school

Here is another almost sunset photo from atop a hill:

Happy Life

Bertrand Russell said : ” A happy life must be to a great extent a quiet life, for it is only in an atmosphre of quiet that true joy dare live.”

We live in a city filled with noise and people. Quiet moments like these are treasured and remembered and kept closed to the heart.

A River Delta

This is a river delta that we see every time we cross the bridge we are on. I have this crazy thought of getting on the bridge to take better photos and not just these “driveby photos” that I usually get. Soon. Someday soon.

I also long to see the shoreline with which this delta ends with, to feel the sand on my toes and to run wild amongst the pine trees. It may not be as isolated as it was half a lifetime ago when I had a glimpse of that shoreline but I still remember the scene vividly like I just saw it yesterday.

Laguna de Bay

Driveby photo of Laguna de Bay on the way to this country house for a day (an afternoon for me, my husband and son) of swimming and bonding with family (the girls went ahead of us):

I think we were in Jala-jala or Pililia when I took this photo.

This would be a nice setting for a few days of quiet and rest after this school year is over. I’m thinking of lying down on a hammock under coconut trees (with the coconuts picked of course!) while listening to my daughter play her affordable acoustic bass guitar to the beat of soft music which will lull me to sleep.


One other thing: I hope this place doesn’t have a particular smell.
