1. just like the wind
    it blows like a question in the air
    it grows & it ceases
    resonating with how you feel

    just like the moon
    it is constantly present in the night sky
    it weans & it wanes
    consistent with how you feel

    just like the rain
    it beats down on you
    it drizzles it pours
    like the way you feel

    just like the wind
    like the moon
    like the rain
    it will always be there to remind you

    remind you of what you have
    to accept
    to regret
    to forget

  8. This series of photographs portray the adventures I experienced. These collages show two different places fused into one and it is basically my take on how two places could have looked like and the possibility of how it would have looked like when things happened at the same time and at the same place.

  15. graduation trip (equates to hours on the road + too much food)

    This is a really late post on my graduation trip, but I thought it still isn’t too late to write it all down!

    So, my parents flew over to watch me walk. They arrived a week before, so we decided to take a trip to Toronto. Ray was kind enough to offer us a ride in Pocahontas (his car) for the entire trip (imagine the miles we incurred. yikes.) Toronto was so much warmer than the last couple of times we visited. We managed to score a cheap hotel room with Priceline and discovered that it is within walking distance to the places we intended to go.

    This winery was so crowded despite it being located faraway from the city! So we ended up spending some time taking in the scenery and the ambience.

    The next destination was something that Ray thought of and brought up, and we both agreed upon it in 5 minutes. It was a perfect holiday destination when your folks want to unwind and play golf. We booked a room in one of the mansions at Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club and spent two nights there. When we found out that we could have unlimited access to the driving range with just a fee of $20, all four of us ended up spending an entire day practicing our golf strokes. It was a day well spent when we know that we are going to ache really badly the next day.

    Brewster Fish House was where we stopped by for lunch on our first day there. The restaurant was a house with windows all widely opened, allowing all the sunlight that we missed out on during winter to filter in. It was an amazing place with delicious food.

    Then we headed out on the beach trail which lead us to a private beach with really calm waters.

    Ended the trip with Times Square, the Empire State building & shopping at Soho! It was 2 weeks well spent with my parents & Ray, ample bonding time for those who haven’t seen each other in almost a year and for those who have never met. I am a very blessed and lucky girl.
