Serenity captured by my lens
through a beautiful lake
enclosed by a snow covered mountain.

Nature whispering
its stillness
I now understood.

Questions being answered
calming my mind of thunder
and my pondering heart.

Finally, a moment discovering the answers
it’s all crystal clear now,
no whys no hows.

Why Am I Speechless

Why Am I Speechless? – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

The bright blue sky above the tranquil blue sea, a  small boat reminding me of  life sailing  away.  To find a better shore or just to find some peace, why am I speechless if I have a thousand words to say?

Yes, life is like a river, the stream is always moving.  Moments pass us once but memories keep returning.  Life is also like an ocean, its vastness bewilders me. The serene and calm water with its sudden splashing waves.

Amazed by the sunrise as I look at the great ocean view, reminding me that today is no longer yesterday .  Yet, why am i frightened by a beautiful sunset? Perhaps because the fading sun welcomes darkness and its hues, reminding me that daylight needs to rest and need to stray the view.

And if I jump and start to follow the promise of a beautiful shore, I might get adrift by the whims of the ocean’s lore.  But if I choose to stay and hold on for one more day,  will everything stays the same as the boat has sailed away?

*** An excerpt from my not so worn out diary.  Not my current state of mind, i just want to use a corresponding story for the photo. Oh, why am i explaining? I should be speechless right? 🙂

** photos taken in Bohol, Philippines

The Beauty of The Philippines

The Beauty of The Philippines

Just a passing thought,  i  wonder why i seldom feature my own country in this blog.

Colonial mentality? Nope, not really, i just don’t have enough beautiful photos of my past escapades.

All right i have beautiful photos, too much alibis. The truth is you don’t really appreciate everything you have while you still have it.  You know that feeling?  That you can always return to that beach , that beach , just a few minutes from your place.

The mentality of not rushing because you have all the time to visit your country’s scenic spots.  After all , they’re just within reach.   Until a foreign friend of yours showed all his beautiful photos from his recent vacations and proudly tell you all his beautiful memories in that place.

You gasp in disbelief asking yourself why you can see a a sparkle in his eyes and yet you barely see the beauties that surround you.

I remember that time in Bangkok when i excitedly ask my friends to have my photo taken while i’m inside the tuk tuk (thailand’s version of  tricycle) yet i never had a single photo of myself riding our local tricycles or jeepneys.

I thought i’m different until i talked to a thai tourist.  She told me she’d been to more than 15 beaches in the Philippines and yet she’d never been to pattaya or phuket.  Wow! Reminds me of myself.

This is taking too long so i better cut this short.  So to appease my guilt in not advertising my beautiful country, (i know it’s not too late to post something about The Philppines), this time i’ll show you photos of a beautiful beach in Kalanggaman Island Leyte , photos courtesy of my friend Kevin Rodriguez.

Just like you, i hope someday i’ll visit this place.   Who knows we might visit it together?  Just give me a wink and i can be your beautiful travel guide.

Wi Fi in The Forest

Wifi in the forest

There is no wi-fi in the forest but you’ll find a better connection.  A soul’s reflection, nature’s perfection , which way your sight leads you to, there’s  sound in its silence.
