Sky Watch Friday: a mellow sunset



"Nine planets round the sun, only one does the sun embrace. Upon this watered one, so much we take for granted; So let us sleep outside tonight, lay down in our mother's arms, for here we can rest safely…One sweet world around a star is spinning - One sweet world - And in her breath I'm swimming, and here we will rest in peace."

~ Dave Matthews

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),

It's always our self we find in the sea.

~e.e. cummings



Location: Mangodlong, Camotes Island

Puede bang mangisda diyan? Cast a line out and while waiting for the fish to bite, get a drink and relax on a comfy chair and admire the view.
