Ilocos Pt. 5: Lots of fun, quickly gone.


“For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

Ilocos Pt. 4: Where are you riding, Dolores Haze?


“There's a race of men that don't fit in,
A race that can't sit still;
So they break the hearts of kith and kin, 
And they roam the world at will.
They range the field and rove the flood,
And they climb the mountain's crest; 
Their's is the curse of the gypsy blood,
And they don't know how to rest.”






Hola Narcissa! Que vanidosa!
And I must have been a flower in my previous life.


Glazelle in the garden :-D


(Hi Missus Photobomber at the back. Thank you for your cooperation)



I want this wardrobe.
Dragonflies are magical






Flowers, rainbows, art, freedom. These are a few of my favourite things.

4 of 5.

Ilocos Pt. 3: Words without experience are meaningless.

  
It was wonderful, you see. 
To have been experienced Earth's magnificence in a day.
Two days, even three.

Peace signs automatically make you look happy. 
But looking happy is way different from feeling happy. 

The sea, 
The vast blue, 
Makes me feel alone. 
I kind of wish you were here. 
But I like to be left alone. 
Kind of. 
Sort of. 

Well, these lines might sound like a dumb joke, 
But jokes are half meant.

I have heard what the talkers were talking, the talk of the beginning and the end,

But I do not talk of the beginning or the end.



There was never any more inception than there is now,

Nor any more youth or age than there is now,

And will never be any more perfection than there is now,

Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now.

My very appropriate forest look. A decent scarf is always an investment.

3 of 5. Two more travel posts to go.
