Who Knows?

It’s Sunday and I am enjoying my last few hours in this temporary haven in Baguio. The only sound I hear are the soft whirring of CK’s fan and my fingers dancing on the keyboard—otherwise, it’s pure, unadulterated silence.

My workshop finished at 9 pm yesterday and with the SONA tomorrow blocking my way to the office in QC, what’s the point of rushing down to Manila today? So I decided to just stay here for one more day, chill (literally) and enjoy the fog-enveloped view from my window.

Who knows, I might catch another technicolor sunset like the one I caught on camera the other day! Who knows if I would get to enjoy such a rare awesome treat again?

Then again, who knows if I will ever come back again to this nice haven in Baguio?

Who knows if this nice haven will still be around a year from now when I come home? Who knows if I would ever be able to enjoy this unadulterated peace and quiet again?

Who knows what life will throw at me tomorrow?

For now, I am A-OK and life is good. Cheers!

Yeah, and who knows, you might find your Prince Charming in Merry Old England, hehe. :-)

Sayang I was hoping you'd join us in our EB last night. Anyways, before you leave na lang siguro...

That multi-colored sunset is indeed amazing. Parang aurora lights sa north. I really miss Baguio.

Di pa ako nakaliwaliw ng Baguio. Dumaan lang nung pumunta kami ng Sagada...how sad hehe

One of the best sunset pictures I have ever seen.

I can understand your 'who knows' mood -- now that you're about to open a new door.

All best.

Amazing colors -- that sunset! Lucky you.

Wil said...

I guess "who knows" is another way of saying "live in the now", "enjoy the moment" or maybe "seize the day".

melai said...

this post made me realize how I miss Baguio....11 years na pala akong hindi nakakabalik sa Summer Capital ng pinas :(

zherwin said...

Great pics here, truly majestic and grand. Perhaps paradise had looked like this somehow---foggy trees and colored rays shooting from behind a low cloud.

nice sunset pic you have here!
parang sa Alaska ah!

kathy said...

Akala ko nong una, nakapunta ka na sa north pole at nakakita ng aurora borealis - which was how your sunset picture looked like to me at first. :)

Cheers!

Leah said...

Beautiful photos Gypsy. Good that you had the chance to enjoy Baguio. Malamig pa rin ba dun?

Baguio--which brings me memories of my youth. a place i want to see once more. nice shots you have. i remember those sights, most often when i take these flights through the subcontinent, like india and pakistan, which have evening to early morning flights. how i would either remain awake or wake up at these early hours just to watch the sun rise. it is always an amazing sight in the horizon.
