The past 2 months, I was cooped up behind a desk. Answering phone calls, facing a computer, trapped inside 4 walls of an office. I question myself for feeling this way sometimes, but no matter how much I try, I still find that a redundant routined life is only a path to losing myself. But hey, I’m not complaining. These adventures don’t pay for themselves. . . As much as I hated being in that office, it taught me two things about myself: One, ‘never under estimate the power of a good roadtrip.’ And two, ‘nothing is more satisfying than human connection. . . The second I found time for myself, I immediately took my car out for a drive to my favorite spot just outside the city. I didn’t really expect anything to happen, I just needed to remind myself of my freedom. . . And then I met these two, Lolo Redentor, and his granddaughter Kathleen. They lived in a hut just above the river. We ended up spending the whole afternoon together, exchanging stories of our own triumphs and failures. Three very separate lives, that in that moment, felt immensely connected. . . Lolo Redentor watched his granddaughter as she laughed and played in the river, with pure innocence in her expression, as if it was the first time her skin felt fresh water. In that moment, I felt it was a privilege to be sitting there with them. I couldn’t help but give them both a tight hug when we parted. What I had to drive to was their own backyard, and they welcomed me in. My heart was quiet in gratitude, I felt so grateful. How can strangers be so pure, genuine, and kind? . . So here I am in my bedroom feeling a wash of fulfillment and inspiration as I write this down. So, self, if you ever find yourself in quicksand again, remember: Go on that roadtrip. Meet other humans. 💛 #ThisPhilippineLife . . #WTNadventures #SinoPinas #TravelStoriesPH #canonasia #yourshotphotographer
