I’m raring to go on the road again!

A skimboarder surveying the waters for that wave to ride the afternoon off near Red Beach in Palo, Leyte.

He was… waiting. Feeling the wind, the water and his heartbeat. Blame it on ennui and the rustle and bustle of polluted Metro Manila that my feet is itching for that ride to nowhere again or just a sojourn to some place else. I was browsing through my files and saw this photo of a skimboarder off Palo in Leyte just near the famous Red Beach where MacArthur and company have been immortalized. He was surveying, looking for that perfect wave to ride. Waiting. Feeling the wind, the water and his heartbeat.

And I can’t just help but sense the tug of being on the road again. After this current book design project is finished, I’m setting my sights around Luzon. Hopefully.
