Ordinary Universe

​Her mind is
Nothing but a wonderful blessing
Always yearning
Always growing

And here I am
But a blunt feather
Blown away by her endless wind
I float along the hush of her whisper
Enchanted
Of how grand of an angel she is
Eternally too big
And too much
To fit in
Our ordinary universe.

"The Book Stop Project" is a pop-up library that aims to reach its readers at the heart of Manila. Visitors can freely donate books, and as well as adopt one of their choice. Today, I dropped 14 books from my shelf and bagged Shakespeare's King Lear home.

My friend and I also visited the National Museum on its last day of free admission. Grabbing the opportunity while it still lasts!

I Hail The Queen

I am always entranced by the beauty of night, especially when the Queen Moon (yes, I cannot simply say the word moon without including the word Queen with a capital Q because, heh, she’s the Queen) rises and takes center stage — with her back up crew, those different colors of stars from plain white to extravagant blue, surrounding. No matter where I am or what I’m doing I always make sure to stare above, for how long I don’t know, and solemnly hail the beauty of the night sky.

But no matter how good of a quality the device is, it can never beat the actual beauty my eyes can see real time.

 

Blog Update (and a little unexaggerated nostalgia)

I think I might have come to the certain age in which tiniest details of a general life like choosing a blog theme can become so confusing and frustrating at the same time. I had been using the Gateway theme for over half a year now and lately decided to tweak some changes in my site appearance. I still love Gateway and functions that come along with it but it just doesn’t fit anymore, say for this 2016 and my blogging desires. So, I jumped out of Gateway and tried the looks of Lovecraft, to Twenty Ten, and lastly settling with My Life. I would like to apologize to whoever frequently pays a visit to my blog only to find my theme changing every single day.

To my dearest one

To my dearest one,

I swear to cherish you in times of happiness and misery, dry your tears away whenever the odds seemed to have gone against you, make you laugh despite of the rainy day, kiss your broken heart, hold you in your sleepless nights and protect you from the vicious cycle of this cruel world. I have never even met you, but I have loved you more than I loved anybody else and am more than willing to sacrifice my only life for your own safety expecting nothing in return, for I’m bound to offer my greatest love to you. That, you can guarantee as long as I live, until we meet again in the promises of paradise.

With love,
Your future mom.
