Family and self, looking inside and grateful to God for the good things and the challenges that made me a better person. I may not have those I wished for but I got better options in the long run. I am learning more and expanding my choices in leading a life of purpose. Touching base with myself and other people’s lives-my first page for 2016 with Valerie’s painting.
In 1996 I visited Vigan and saw how the brick buildings were being repaired by cementing them which made me felt so sad that there was little effort to preserve them. Vigan became a UNESCO heritage site and I am hoping the cultural preservation would continue.
Similarly the churches in the Bicol region retained their grandeur with the colorful hue of bricks and this sight depressed me.
Saint Nicolas Church in San Nicolas, Laoag
No seats, eats, no seatbelt and no turning off of cellphones and electronic device. Just hang on the rails.
timeline: July 21, 2013 seen this in 2007 without the heart shaped bower and I am still in love with this house in Baker’s Hill, Puerto Princesa Palawan
I posted my Angel’s angel believing it was the good one and then she made this drawing.
After this drawing she posted her version of ying and yang, the one holding the black ball is the evil and the good one is holding the white ball but looks can really be deceiving.
Valerie’s drawings (again…)
Incomplete drawing of Valerie.
Our Lady of the Gate church, Nuestra Señora de la Porteria parish was built in 1773 atop Sta. Maria Hill in Barangay San Roque with the view of Mayon volcano. It is one of the most visited churches, known for its baroque architecture.
The steps to the church and the people whiling away time.
