Homeward Bound

the epitome of calm

I am now checking the passage of time, no longer by weeks or days, but by mere hours. Soon enough, I will be tugging my luggage to the train station and board the earliest trip to the airport. A few more tick-tocks and i will be cruising above the clouds. Then it will be home.


There are uncertainties to this trip, particularly with regard to my continuing stay in Japan, but truth is, I am not in any way concerned. I am just dying to be home - where life is how I want it to be. Add of course the fact that at Christmastime, there really can no better place but where your heart rests comfortably in the presence of relatives, friends and other loved ones.

See ya all folks!

****

Let me leave you some of the photos I took from our recent trip to Lake Inagako in Yamanashi Prefecture, as we tried to capture the last moments of autumn. I hope that with this set of pics, I would be able to convey the peace and calm that I hope we will all feel this Christmas.

Talaga naman! I think I said this before but it bears repeating: Paganda ng paganda ng paganda ang mga kuha mo ah. Christmas ang feel. Parang painting! Just wow!

ScIoN said...

aajao said...

ang lunkot ng entry. pati yung photos. kahit maganda ang autumn pagdating sa nature, parang malungkot pa rin ang dating nya. at kitang-kita yun sa mga litrato mo.

uy nandito ka na malamang sa Pinas? sigurado ako mami-miss mo ang Japan at lahat ng pinuntahan mo. pero sabi mo nga, "I am just dying to be home - where life is how I want it to be. Add of course the fact that at Christmastime, there really can no better place but where your heart rests comfortably in the presence of relatives, friends and other loved ones."

WELCOME BACK HOME! :)

PS. sa'n ang EB? ;)
