On Sunday Morning

May 24, 2014. It was a Sunday, and while waiting for mass to start, I was outside for the breeze. These have been hot and humid days, and I am thankful for a respite. This young family caught my eye… I like to watch people as a pastime, and when I saw them, I could […]

Monsters in the Backyard

I was called out of the house one morning. My father was harvesting one of the Singkamas (Eng: Jicama or turnip)  bulbs that he planted some time ago. He had to loosen the ground with water… and there weren’t one, but two monsters. 🙂  Pretty cool. Also, it was only this morning that I noticed that […]
