Let's Proceed

Kalesa, 2013

Finally a blog entry. A week from now we will be back in the Philippines. Some events so important to the missus need to be attended; retirement, wedding. I, on the other hand, will have the chance to continue the stories I was working on. Most of these stories did not fall into place last year. The weather went unfavorable and the seas became turbid. I got sick, stayed in the room all day and may have fallen  into a mild form of depression. That month will be remembered as the month of my self-incarceration.

Perhaps I am longing for that euphoria, that adrenalin rush of chasing weekly deadlines from all the photojournalism assignments. Its scent dissipated like a perfume in winter. Thought provoking, intense, sensitive and insightful discussions in and out all gone in a "decisive" moment. (Which reminds me to transcribe the audio file of that day when I stood among admired men and women.) Most of all, I missed  my mates, friends, kindred spirits.

But every end creates new beginnings. I will proceed. I am currently packing my gears while writing this post. So, here's to good weather and calm seas. And this time too I have Rya to assist me. Having someone hold a diffuser, reflector or strobe really goes a long way.  Plus, if she breaks it she buys me a new one. Ha! 

Most of all, what I am looking forward to this year's vacation is that I am going to Cebu. Yes! After thirty years I'll get to visit the house where I grew up, see the old neighborhood and my elementary school. Another good thing would be the food. A su-tu-kil experience is never to be missed. That will be another post for another day. 

So, that's it for from me folks. Peace.
