Lost my first, and hopefully last, molar

The art of losing is not hard to master. Lost my first molar! It was filled with the intent to be lost that its loss (Write it!) was no disaster.

This cheered me up.

This is how I want to spend my life

Lying down on a grassy hill, watching clouds go by during the day, watching stars sparkle at night. The two of us talking and laughing and holding hands. Every moment, a breeze.

Photo taken by Sherwil Nuesa during one of her travels. Because it reminded her of me.

For posterity's sake, the Mt. Pinatubo poem

Because I don't know a shorter way to retrieve Facebook status updates. And because this stranger has just conquered Mt. Pinatubo! Four-hour trek across snake-infested and rocky lahar land and all.

From my learner Remi.

I'm sorry but I can't go
I'm not such an hero
It's a stratovolcano
... It's Mount Pinatubo.
