fading light

We were lost in the Dark Forest.
Our imagination was playing tricks on us.
Or at least we hoped.
Because all sorts of apparations started appearing.
Something was telling me they were real.

—Chronicles of Ertirdil

themis ~ goddes justitia

Themis judged whether the dead went to Tartarus or the Elysian Fields and is depicted as blindfolded so as to be impartial. When people were assigned to Tartarus, the Erinyes took them. When alive, those who thwarted Themis, were visited by Nemesis, the personification or goddess of divine retribution. Themis was also credited with wisdom and foresight (her son's name, Prometheus, means "foresight"), and with knowing secrets unknown even to Zeus.

Best Friends Forever

me and my best friend Judith picknicking in Tagaytay

"Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
Your heart is true you're a pal and a confidant.
And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you ever knew
You would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say
Thank you for being a friend..."

-Thank You For Being A Friend
Theme from The Golden Girls
Andrew Gold

Clouded mind

The thought of you leaving
Makes the skies blue.

over the city lights
watch us flying

Dirty Holga

Squeeze it so hard I fall right out of bed..."

light of your shade

I've kept you under my shade.
Until it was time to let you go.
Now you are free.
Because as the saying goes,
“When you love somebody, set her free.”

tracing my roots

I know that the Oblation in U.P. is overrated for Holga photos but I couldn't help myself. I am also an alumni of the university so there's emotional attachment here.

1. The University of the Philippines was originally at Padre Faura Street, Manila where UP Manila stands today.

2. The Oblation statues both at the Diliman and Manila campuses are replicas. The original statue is at the top floor of the Main Library at U.P. Diliman.

3. Fernando Poe Sr. was the model for the statue.

His Name is Hugo

We bought him from a kind lady for half the price of a purebred. It wasn't his fault his mama was half-poodle. "So what?" my mom would say, "He may not be pure, but his heart is--he's the most loyal dog I have ever had." And we agree.

The salty taste of skin
against my tongue.
Air rustling around
my curled legs.
Warmth enveloping me
in my own embrace.
Last night,
I slept in tears.
