No water posts yet… working on it 🙂 1st leg will likely be on the road by late-March. Right now, I’m thinking of Cebu: a visit to Malapascua, one of the severely hit areas by Yolanda, where we’ll glimpse the progress of their recovery and probably a Thresher Shark or two; and Moalboal, where we’ll see Pescador and some freediving action (my friend Carlo, not me — I plan to suck on air as I film him). *fingers crossed
After the premature lashing over a project that has yet to hit the road last week, I also got words of encouragement. Thank you.
I love that I somehow have this support group for even my wildest ideas. And it doesn’t have to be a grand gesture, although I got that from my dive instructor/ friend Wilson who helped me make headway with this project over rum cokes. It could just be sparing time to look through my proposal and edit my stuff. (Ma’am Gym-Mom, thank you.) Or it could be silent leaps made by Carlo, who made inspiring shifts in his life last year.
Also worth mentioning are the women of the Pitak Project. Now, they are strong powerful women — idol! Made their dream a reality, and continue to devote time, money and manpower to making their permaculture farm and natural home building work. They’ve also influenced their community positively.
I visited their farm in La Union twice last year, both within a quarter. The progress is fast; and the harvest is yummy. (That was my first taste of fresh from harvest organic vegetables.) I helped put up 95% of a mud wall. I put my Body Attack to use and transported rocks up and down the slope, non-stop hehe.
Anyway… just feeling gratefulness this morning. Here’s to a good productive week!
