I’m Back!

My apologies for the long silence. 

Life’s been happening. The wandering hadn’t stop – I just didn’t find time to consistently update.

This is from outside my home now.

A constant companion since 2009, we found him lying at the sidewalk along Jumeirah Beach Residences in Dubai.

While I can barely remember late February that this dude got his 15 minutes of fame pulling a stunt against my personal idol Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, but I had declined on posting right away because while I was stark raving mad that he tried to besmirch the honor of the lovely senator, I didn’t want to extend his 15 minutes, not even one bit.

So now, a quarter later, I can’t for the love of everything chocolate even remember his name. Honest! But I won’t even pull an internet search for him so let me just share this photo I made while I was angry.

I have been looking at the UNA Senatorial Slate and cannot see his mug, nor name so will you do me a favor of making me remember who he was?

Thank you!

This spectacular montage is something most of us will never see in our lifetime.

I suggest that you view this in full screen, HD, with the volume on full.

A great piece for evening meditation too.

I liked how tall the trees were, indicative of how long they’ve been there and that they’ve no intentions of leaving us anytime soon.  Such a sharp contrast to the owner-type jeep trying to hide in it’s shade nearby.

It’s not as spectacular as a Manila Bay Sunset, but I still find it a pleasant surprise and an excellent distraction to the afternoon wedding I was attending.

The road trip going there and heading back was actually longer than the occassion we went to, but looking at the farm and the trees and the roads on the way back, especially the people we met, were pretty much worth a return visit.
