"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

it's my december!

"Your life is an occasion, rise to it!"

loving all that white which my fingertips flirt with

i got my share of batangas' cold december breeze last night. the wind was blowing so nicely, i felt compelled to at least try embracing it as i walked. the wind responded by brushing and ruffling my hair some more. it certainly felt good to be spreading my arms and allowing my self to soak in the wind. although it was rather late when i found my way back to my place in laguna, i was glad i decided to give batangas my time. now i know for sure that it makes a lot of sense for me to look forward to spending more time there.

my days here in laguna unfold like a walk in the park... or maybe i should just say that they unfold WITH a walk in the park. when i set out everyday, i find my way out of the village by walking on a footpath lined with young trees and perfumed with the natural aroma of nice green grass. even on rainy days, the path is good to walk on and i get to start my days with a "la la la life is good" air.

on the 30th of november, the message on my phone that brought me to wakefulness was "happy birthday soon and always. you'll always be one of the good, best people i met and is friendship, kinship for me."

wow! surprise surprise!!! i could always trust one of my friends to pull such a pleasant surprise! an early birthday message? the simplicity of it blew me away!

it really doesn't matter wherever my friends are, i can sense their sincerity even from afar. it feels good to know that there are really people who put value on the kinship and trust that i have for them. i cannot say the same for people i know who take my trust for granted and mindlessly break it; certainly not my loss, i dare say.

my december unfolded rather nicely and in just a matter of days, i'll be turning a new leaf. i'd like to think i'm building up things...

last week, i welcomed december with a purchase of good reads, a good time with friends, a haircut, a foot spa, a spur-of-the-moment videoke session (oh yeah, for the first time in my singing history, i got a 100!!! the song? i will survive! wehehehe!!!), productive workweek, a video mash of nice photos of me and some of my long-time friends, sharing a full can of stik-o with my new friends, and an early christmas night in batangas.

this week and the coming weeks, the possibilities are endless.

PLUS: i'll be going home, too!


  1. Is that an iBook?

    I envy your environment. Here in the big bad city we wake up to the sound of smoke-belching jeepneys instead of crickets. :)
