The Joy in Looking Up

Faith, Life Lessons and Impressions, Photography, Poetry, Uncategorized

 

Looking up the sky

is such a therapeutic momentary

escape

Stop

the time

and see the extraordinary

beauty in simple things.

Breathe

the air that fills up your soul.

Smile

to the eyes that behold from above.

And my mind never fails to capture

freedom .

* These are just random things and views I saw up there. Made me smile 🙂

Discover great ways to appease your boredom while waiting for a ride:) I love to look up the sky to predict the weather. Most of the time, to say a breath prayer. The clouds smile back!

I love to look up the sky to name the type of clouds (recalling the science lessons in grade school is fun) This made me smile while walking to my apartment. ‘Sea’ up the sky!:)

Guess that’s because the sun may age a million years but its beauty appears to be always new! 🙂 Afternoon contemplation at Starbucks, BGC (Total Corp. Center BGC). I have a collection of shots of sunsets on that spot every time I go there! ❤

*Under My Favorite Tree

Life Lessons and Impressions, Photography, Uncategorized

Simple things are extraordinary. After attending a class and some school stuff last Saturday, eating avocado-mango Sorbetes and Taho under my favorite tree at the Sunken garden as the sunset preludes was more than a weekend spa!  It was therapeutic to see people not in a rush, chasing time. Time decelerated as we began to silent our souls from the noise of life’s complexities. Joy became just plain and simple and I was sure it was genuine in all the smiles I saw as we did things for love.  It wasn’t just mere amusement. It was music to hear hearty laughter and there was serenity in all the happy faces I saw. And to me, it was a great taste of life as I savor the sweets I had and that silence that made me listen more to my own heartbeat. Indeed, there’s a unique pleasure in seeing people happy.  Sometimes, in a busy walk, we need to pause and breathe the fragrance of life in the flowers we overlook!:-)
