Wear a smile and walk in the sun

Past the stormy weathers, loves failed and abject brokenness, comes a time when tears dry up. There comes a day when the sun – shining its usual brightness at its appointed time – lightens up a soul from an angle, causing a smile upon a face long given to tired and weary days and ways.


Just when the arms have been used to hanging on the sides – shy to reach out, afraid to touch, terrified to try – comes a moment when something stirs inside. Β There is but a longing for a taste of the earth, a bite of the bitter and a slice of the world – a minute something in lieu of nothing!

    “In the Philippines, the sun comes out almost everyday.” That’s a good thing, actually. Good for the laundry hanging out to dry πŸ˜€ I remember my college days when I used to sit in class and then suddenly the rain clouds appear and I start worrying about the laundry out on the roof. It becomes difficult to concentrate on the lecture πŸ˜€

    “Wear a smile and walk in the sun” Very nice, San!

    • wino-worry mo no’n ang uniforms mong nakasampay? hihi, you’re a worrier, my dear. but yes, i guess it’s a woman thing to worry about clothes hanging out to dry, ahaha. but even your concentration sa lecture, affected? pambihira… πŸ˜‰

      hala, galing lang ang phrase sa kanta. the piece is about romanticism. please look at the tag – splitting spleen. it’s a common way to describe romantic writings, hihi… πŸ™‚

  8. Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back in a couple of weeks!
