I love the sea although  it was quite sometime since I visited one. Gazing at the distant horizon, I am always in awe of the one great Hand who created it. There is always that feeling of peace inside my sometimes troubled heart every time  I see something like this.

And William Blake described it beautifully  when he said:  “To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.”

weekly photo challenge

The  anticipation

And the excitement

That an early morning brings –

Feeling the sun on your face

And silence whispers,

“What a beautiful world.”

I always love blogging about the sea, seeing it  in all its glory and angst but I seldom have the opportunity to visit one as often as I want.  Here are some pictures of Capones Island, in San Antonio, Zambales. It’s an uninhabited paradise that boasts of a long stretch of white sand beach and rocky cliffs and clear turquoise waters and azure sky.  Wouldn’t you want to stay here for a while and commune with nature at its best?

That moment when   the clouds hide  the sun’s brilliance but then you know that in a while, the dazzling light would show its face  and everything in your world would be right again. Life shadows are there to show us a promise of what is to come – maybe, something new to discover, to appreciate and admire.

Can’t think of a better subject to represent this week’s challenge than taking shots of my garden and the flowers  and plants growing there.  Something fresh that would greet you each morning, something that reminds you that every day there is a treasure to find, in simple and small things.

Can’t resist taking shot of this the last time we went to Tondo to visit  my son-in-law’s family. Theirs is an old house full of bric-a-brac like this, it goes with some of their old wooden furniture with lovely carvings. I don’t know what this is made of because it is quite heavy and it stands more than a foot tall.  It’s an ornament to treasure, the design is definitely vintage.

Are you the adventurous type? Do you look forward to new challenges in life, be it simple things or some unknown fear of heights  that you want to conquer? Challenges are part of daily living and it’s up to us to meet them with a smile hoping that  everything would be okay in the end. Three years ago, the whole family went to enchanted Kingdom as part of the family day  celebration of  Bank of the Philippine Islands where I used to work and where my daughter and son-in-law are presently working as bank officers. I am  afraid of heights (until now). My knees always wobble at the thought of  all those head-spinning rides but my kids  enjoy them. They’ve been to Enchanted Kingdom more than I can count.




And they always say, the thrill is in the ride. Yeay…way to go….forward!

There is a saying that goes, home is where the heart is. And sometimes our heart lies in simple things, appreciating the beauty of what is around us.


Silence is golden. And our cat is enjoying the silence of resting in our small garden with the morning sun and the occasional chirps of birds around.


The joys of friendship, just being there for each other and at peace with the world while enjoying a good swing in our garden hammock.


There is no better way to spend one’s time than enjoying good books on a lazy afternoon.  Reading is a treasured hobby that I would always enjoy.


Having a good cup of morning coffee with hot pan de sal. What more could you ask for?
