10 January 2010

Just Some Thoughts.


Peacefully happy.


Since the first day of 2010, I have been patiently listening to the aching of my heart. I follow and chase what aches me. And my heart's beating right now sounds like a shutter release. I'm aching to shoot and capture moments again, soon. This year, I am following the ache and the dream, no matter how silly they may sound, in full throttle.

Universe, I am ready.

I know this will be an exciting year. So far, I already have four weddings, an anniversary, and two adventures somewhere far and magical. There are so many secret projects in the pipeline, too. And it's just the 10th day of the year.

2010, I hope, will be a better year.

2009 wasn't so bad, actually. And although I had my share of difficulties, I survived them gracefully because I had family and friends who held me up when I was too weak to stand on my own. I learned tons of lessons last year, too -- lessons that shifted and stirred something in my soul. Lessons that I am sure will guide me through all the challenges and broken promises and heartaches that we somehow all experience in the process of living an achingly beautiful life.

. . . . .

I am grateful that CBB captured exactly how I am feeling right now -- peaceful and happy. I guess, it stems from knowing that many good things are happening to people I care about (babies and all), that 2009 was kind to me, that 2010 will have more magic and miracles, and that I am deeply loved.

You are so right -- I really prefer the second one -- a play of light and shadow, grainy with a tinge of ubiquitous luminescence.

Hahaha! Remember, I asked you baya to take my portraits! Plus, a shoot with me and Mom.

I'm just not really comfy infront of the camera. I don't know how to pose or project. I almost always end up looking stiff or constipated. Or bungisngis. LOL

Yes, CBB is such an excellent photographer. I'm lucky to learn from him. :)

Thank you, Chi. How tones/light totally change the mood of a photograph no? I personally like the first one, too. But I also like 'drama' of light and shadow. :)

Let's continue to inspire each other. I guess, you know already that I get a lot of inspiration from you. Continue writing and freezing moments, Chi. :)

Thank you, Mei! I think it's true what they say that mogawas gyud sa itsura what you feel inside. :)

Have a super happy 2010, Mei! :)

That's a promise. And hopefully, I had lost a little bit of weight by then :)

Chichi is quite right. You look like an angel. You look so... at peace & happy. CBB, thank you for this picture. Excellent!!!

Ai, pamisik sa imong kagwapa beh! Mura gyud ka Cojuangko here.

This is a very beautiful photo of you, Ai! Gwapa kaayo ka! I am having difficulty choosing which of the two I like better, but luckily I don't have to choose! Hehehe...

2010 holds so much for you--there is no doubt about that! I am excited to read all about it and that way, be part of your journey! :-)
