DREAMS AND ESCAPES

The heavy downpour woke me up from a deep sleep this morning but it saved me precious minutes of watering my plants. And amidst catching  PNoy’s speech at Barasoain  Church and watching the short program on TV, I managed to harvest Kalamansi in our backyard. I harvested more than a kilo and gave some to our neighbor. Perfect for that ice-cold kalamansi juice.

About arlene

Life starts with a beautiful dream. Life starts in somehow believing that one day you’ll get what you wished and prayed for. Life starts with something you believe you can do and dream about. My entries here are mostly about my journey as a cancer patient, a cancer survivor, a mother, a friend, and about the books I read, places I want to visit and have visited, people I want to meet someday and mostly about the daily grind of simple living. Dreams and Escapes is about having enough faith to go on, the will to live no matter how difficult life may seem sometimes and grateful appreciations of all the things one holds dear. It is about the belief that I could share a little of my journey through writing and writing is an escape for me. When things get a little too hard to bear, I put them into perspective by sharing them here. Dreams and Escapes, why not?
