#205 Savouring Sunset


Soon, the end of a year will be upon us. Again.

Reminiscing the passing year, some may ask... what have I achieved this year? Have I done enough? Have I lived life to the fullest? But here's my question for you: have you seen your share of sunrises and sunsets this year?

You see, dawn and dusk can be experienced every day of the year, and from anywhere on earth. They are the most beautiful and certainly most incredible parts of the day. Look at today's postcard... they are truly spectacles that can renew the human spirit, refresh the weary soul.  All you need to do is to wake up a little earlier, or barring that, stay outdoors a little later. But hurry. There are just a few more left to see this year. Enjoy.

But wait, there's more. Tonight is Christmas eve. As family & friends come together to celebrate faith, life, & love, allow me to greet you a very Merry Christmas, from my home to yours. And thank you for following and sharing my posts this year. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: To photograph twilight, you will need to stalk them. Why? Some are better than most, and the "law of averages" will ensure that you'll nail your share. Btw that chap in today's postcard, it was his first time to setup a hammock to watch the day turn into night, and it didn't disappoint. Lucky guy.)

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 (murilloarnel@yahoo.com), 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 aldrinsuan@yahoo.com of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
