I consider myself quite lucky everytime I see free roaming animals such as this beautiful swan, just around our neighborhood! And these beautiful wilds are just exactly what I like to shoot. Shoot with my camera, that is.
Today, Spring has officialy begun in Holland. But why am I sounding gloom (or at least my intro?) It’s because it’s gray and so cold outside! Some parts of Holland have even snow! Frustrating and yeah, even depressing to be here right now. My body is screaming for the sun. Nature’s source of life. Nature’s natural source of light and warmth. Sun, where are you?!
Now that I’m older, and I believe wiser (even just a bit) I have found a new respect for old couples. With such high divorce rate in many countries these days, I marvel at them old couples I see walking down the streets still holding hands, giving kisses on the cheeks….really gives me that feeling of admiration for them, for withstanding life and all that it throws at them!
So to you young people who might be reading this, there is a reason why they say: “old people are wiser, their experiences in life made them wiser” … show respect, I say to you, youngsters. And I hope you be able to reach the ripe old age someday.
We are already on our second week of March yet we couldn’t ‘celebrate’ this month which supposed to mark the (re)birth of Springtime but yet, here we are, with a temperature of just 1C and it is even snowing outside! My Asian body simply can’t take it anymore. I’ve been sickly for a few weeks nows and sometimes “I simply just had it!”, I tell myself.
I hate being sick because it results to not being able to do even the most normal activity like walking, inside and outside the home! I have been having problems on my hip, knees, neck and back (just to name a few) that really, there’s nothing I can do but hope to heal. AND lounge. And amuse myself by watching tv shows and movies. I wasn’t really fond of watching television but now, I wish we had those video wall s and a few screens so that I can watch a few shows at the same time! Yeah that’s how bored I am right now.
And now with gray skies and cold temperature outside…I wish I’m back in Asia and soaking up the sun! The sun that I used to hate because ‘it’s too hot’ but now…I’d kill for it to shine!
