Hahaha, sorry for the crappy photoshopping! It’s the best I can come up with given my Z-grade photoshop skills. Anyway, it’s time for me again to go on a break. Tomorrow, I shall be off to some hopefully paradise-like getaway to get some much needed R&R. I need to recharge my batteries to keep me going. I promise to use my new D10 in the water and see what kind of shots I could squeeze off of it, and I will post them as soon as I could. Hopefully the weather cooperates and I pray mother sun shines brightly on us for the 4 days we’ll be there.
On a very sad note, it’s a bit unsettling to receive such tragic news on the eve of our departure. I just got news of a high school batchmate who lost 3 members of their family in the ferry that capsized around noon yesterday. I pray they be granted strength and grace in such difficult times. It’s a harsh reminder of how little control we have over the course of our lives on earth. Some Higher Power that we hardly understand is at work here, and we just hope that we’re ready to face whatever lies in our individual futures. They will be in my prayers tonight.
So I pray for safety passage tomorrow and for the rest of our holiday. I hope we come back safe and sound. I have a renewed appreciation of every single day that is given to us. If you think about it, every single day we’re alive is truly a gift. We do this waking up thing every morning that we forget just how easily we can lose it all.
Sorry for being such a downer, tragic news like this really hits to the core.
Anyway, see you when I get back! I’ll be back to work Friday morning, May 29, 2009. Actually I’m working on some posts that I can schedule to be published on the days that I’ll be gone.
