with Angels & Demons, Deception Point, and Digital Fortress - all by Dan Brown. I can't tell you how much I missed reading books.
Now, I've nothing left in my library to read. Somebody lend me a book - better yet - send me books!

A million thanks, again, to our cameraman/photographer, Disney, for all these wonderful shots.
The place was expansive: Hills, forests, and recretional facilities, surrounded by a man-made lake.
There were many sequences to shoot but the staff and I found some time to take pictures.
And some time to goof around.

Here are the pictures of my Bohol trip last year. Love the place. Miss it terribly.

Hark - the oracle speaks! A bolt of lightning falls from the sky! SHAZAAM! As the smoke clears, the hidden deity in you emerges and is revealed to be:
You crave power and you value strength. However, you do not restrict these qualities to the battlefield. You bring your need for control into the bedroom. When behind closed doors, you quickly drop the game playing - and your pants. You love men, and you like to feel worshipped by the men you choose to bed. Comfortable with traditional gender roles, you like to be on top and call all the shots. Although sexually aggressive and strong, you make sure that the men you conquer are also fulfilled and satisfied. Your performance has been perfected through time and practice, and you are always ready to hit the sheets and strut your stuff! You leave a trail of satisfied mortals in your wake.

Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice raises some very interesting points on how civilities often stifle individuality, and how they usually breed pride and prejudice. All of this comes, of course, at a very opportune time in my life when the fine lines are drawn, blurred, erased, and re-drawn, between appearances and principles, honor and character, pride and dignity. I laughed and cried through the whole experience.
I could write a whole thesis on the book, but I don't have the time. Neither will I give it time. What I choose to give time to, instead, is reading. I so miss the exercise. Keeps the mind sharp.
Next on the agenda: Dan Brown's Angels & Demons, one of the books I've long been putting off.

Here he is with host, Drew Arellano, being filmed by ace cameraman, Rey Ochavez.
At People's Park in Davao, during the interview with Jay Durias. Was under the sun for close to an hour. Waaaah!
Outtakes: Rock on!

The Chronicler's Creed
a buscarme. No sé, no sé de dónde
salió, de invierno o río.
No sé cómo ni cuándo,
no, no eran voces, no eran
palabras, ni silencio,
pero desde una calle me llamaba,
desde las ramas de la noche,
de pronto entre los otros,
entre fuegos violentos
o regresando solo,
allí estaba sin rostro
y me tocaba.
And it was at that age... Poetry arrived
in search of me. I do not know, I do not know where
it came from, from winter or a river.
I do not know how or when,
no, they were not voices, they were not
words, nor silence,
but from a street I was summoned,
from the branches of night,
abruptly from the others,
among violent fires
or returning alone,
there I was without a face
and it touched me.
