Day 3~ November 3rd~ New York

city of dreams

For New York to take you in, all you need is a dream. When I think back on what my dream was going to the big city fresh from college and coming from a tiny country so far away, only one word comes to my mind: possibility. This was the place I believed anything was possible. And New York never disappointed me. It made sure I earned what I received, because in a city like this one, you must run and never walk, you must hold your head high despite the pressure pushing it down because if you don’t you can find yourself running back to the old familiar world you came from.

Day 14~ August 14th~ Boracay

alone

Being alone in our world today is a luxury that my soul yearns for everyday. There are so many parts of ourselves that need us to check in with them that not doing so can cause so much undue stress. The alone moments I take for myself everyday cause such a great sigh of relief in me and I walk away from my time alone with a renewed sense of purpose and inspiration. I remember taking long trips to places like India to be alone in my early twenties and returning with a sense of calm that is not possible to attain in any other way than self reflection. I wonder if this is how a sailor might feel.

Day 10~ August 10th~ Boracay

a tilted horizon

It is so curious how we sometimes obsess about making things straight when in fact almost everything is curvy on this feminine planet. Even a straight line curves to make a full circle if its ends were to meet. My apologies to readers and photographers who love to see a perfectly straight horizon, but the tilt intrigues and pleases me 🙂

Day 7~ August 7th~ Boracay

yellow and blue

Sometimes it takes being in a far away place and simply gazing across a horizon to appreciate something so simple such as color. Color surrounds us and permeates our lives on this rich planet and a realization as obvious as blue and yellow making green can be so profound.
