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. To Althea Lauren Ricardo, Marchie P. Reyes, Donna Lampa I'm sorry but I can't go I'm not such an hero It's a stratovolcano ... It's Mount Pinatubo. The Mt. Pinatubo crater lake. January 22-23, 2011.
