Tomorrow is the beginning of the BER months.

I know some of you will probably react and say, “it’s too early yet”. On Facebook, I saw several photos of our talented composer and singer Jose Mari Chan with captions like”lalabas na ba ako?”, “I’m coming”, “eto na”. All speak on the anticipation of Christmas. I’ve told you in my previous blog posts that we celebrate it the longest in this neck of the woods.

Jose Mari Chan is a Filipino pop singer, composer, TV host, endorser and a business man in the sugar industry. He is well known in those lovely Christmas carols that Filipinos love.

Pandemic? Yes it has changed our outlook in life, changed our priorities, changed how we view our health. We have become so conscious of it but still this virus is wrecking havoc in this world. Last year, I didn’t think of putting up Christmas decorations but I bought family gifts early braving one morning at the mall. This time though, although I am fully vaccinated and had Covid four months ago, I am afraid to go out. We could still celebrate Christmas quietly, attending evening masses online and buying small gifts to celebrate the season with the family.

Christmas is the season for rejoicing. Jesus is coming. It’s a birthday most of us don’t want to miss.

If I were to summarize all the blog posts I’ve written over the years, it amounts to 2,715 all in all. That’s  about five blog sites , of which the four are almost inactive.

Dreams and Escapes  – 2,204 posts  (this one not included)

Gardens and Empty Spaces –  108 posts

Our Precious Bundle  Of Joy  – 145 posts

Colors – 171 posts

Dreams  Never End –  87 posts.

Dreams and Escapes is my main blog of course.  It’s where I started my blog at WordPress. Back then, I didn’t even know how to customize, and personalize a site. I l;earned through the years and writing became an obsession. It comes easy once you started.  As I have said before, it picked up last 2011 when I joined the Post A Day writing challenge.  I am quite afraid to do it now although I dream of it still.

As I wanted to separate my posts which are  most about plants  and blooms in my garden, I started a newer one  called Gardens and Empty Spaces I was inspired by several blogs  I discovered here about gardens.  Our Precious Bundle Of Joy came about when Nate was born five years ago.  I was too enthusiastic before  in updating this one until Nate was a year old. Nowadays, I write posts about him at my main blog. Overall, there are about twenty or more re-posted blogs on these two sites.   (that happens when I am quite lazy to do another post on the same subject…haha 🙂 )

Colors came to fruition  when I noticed that most of my high-resolutions shots were slowly eating up my allowed free space.  This is where I post my macro shots, mostly about flowers and blooms,  some places we’ve been to, food and such.  I love the Duo-tone theme of Colors.  I seldom post there for the simple reason that I no longer have a good camera to take photos. I  mostly use my tab and cellphone when I take  a shot. Each photo has a short write-up.

As I am nearing the end of my allowed free space here, I started a new blog. It has a different title and most entries  do not exceed five hundred words but  they are always accompanied by photos.  I have more than a thousand photos at Photobucket, so many albums in one site but they are all marked  “private”.  Dreams Never End is still a work in progress just like the rest of my blogs.

I changed the name of my photography blog to just COLORS.  I’ve long neglected it for quite sometime choosing to update this main blog, Dreams and Escapes. I haven’t uploaded high res photos  that I took  the last few months.  I am using a Doutone theme and the background changes with each picture that I upload. If you have time come visit me there.
