The sky has begun to light-up as I waited for the dawn to break. My phone beeped... then a familiar voice on the other end.. "Is it there yet?" I looked up to see a sky that has just caught fire. Dawn has arrived. I quickly whispered back... "Yes. It is. And how was yours?" "Exquisite." he replied.
That was a fictional conversation of course, inspired from an ad I saw way back. But the reality is that when the sun rises for you, it sets for someone else. Much like many things in life. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: As dawn rises over the sea, there is a moment when the gathering intensity of orange above is fleetingly reflected on the calm water's surface. Exquisite.)
But wait, there's more...
For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (firstname.lastname@example.org), one of the country's foremost fine-art printmakers. Arnel uses archival inks and museum-grade paper to ensure his prints will not fade. You will not be disappointed. (All my images are provided gratis to help showcase the beauty of our country. But if you feel generous, help me uplift the lives of the Children of Payatas. No donation is too big or too small. Get in touch with Fr. Aldrin Suan at email@example.com of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
