Peaceful retreats



I figured I won't last long given my current lifestyle. I hardly complete my eight-hour sleep. I don't exercise. I eat Jollibee french fries often.

For a change, I decided to go out by myself on a Sunday afternoon, the laziest time of the week. I haven't done that in a long time. My plan was to do brisk walking while taking snapshots of interesting things. For someone who spends most of his time indoors, the experience was surreal.

"There is a whole new world out here that I've totally missed," I thought.

Around the Academic Oval, I saw people jogging, picknicking, taking pictures, and playing. I saw lovers cuddling, kids biking, and foreigners exploring. I even had a chance to watch a concert by tenors and sopranos from the College of Music.

Retreats like this are a comfort to the soul. Thank you, Lord, for the great time.
