Mabuhay! This blog takes you on a tour of a country rich in history and heritage, whose friendly people are steeped in tradition and culture, and whose lands and seas make up a paradise of 7,100 islands. Photos were taken during my travels while writings come from random thoughts and reflections. Featured is a group of talented friends - the Pinoy Kodakeros (PK) - who deserve full credit for their splendid images. My heartfelt thanks to them for letting me share their works.

Inspired by Nature

Nature is such an inspiration. I find in it both solace and strength. Trees, flowers, islands, seas, skies, clouds and all other elements are such powerful stimulants. They overwhelm the senses. They are dreams, passions, fantasies and wishes rolled into one. They provide visual and spiritual overload, knowing that one Creator made them all. Wonder at the soft murmurs of waves splashing on the shore, the soft soothing silence of a wondrous sunrise, the miraculous sight of the last rays of light as the sun ebbs in the horizon, the soft pastel clouds of a gloomy day, dewdrops on delicate leaves in early morn, the soft spongy feel of grass, birds chirping musical melodies as they fly by, the eerie might of primeval forests, majestic mountains and fairy hills. The sight, sound and feel of nature, untouched and pure, sanctified by the Hands that created them, is evidence of a wonderful world that we must care for, preserve, protect and respect. Ours is a life dependent on the natural world around us. We are nothing without it. (Photo location: Montemaria, Batangas, Philippines)
