Breathe In, Breathe Out: A Friday Retreat

This has been quite an interesting week. Juggling between creative endeavors and work issues forced me to stretch my intellectual, emotional and creative quotient beyond my own knowledge of my capability.

I reach Friday and I'm trying to catch my breath so that I'll have enough energy for tomorrow's photo-trip. Psyching myself up for all the possible things that can happen from getting lost, experiencing Manila heat, traffic, and anything else unforseen.

Most of all I hope I can experience amidst all of these, the most awaited creative release. Working on this project for almost two weeks has been the highlight of my creative dry spell this year. I don't think I have fully stretched my creativity yet because I do not know what kind of creative output I'll get to unearth once I experience everything on the move. But I should remain open for any kind of possibility. As long as I am able to create.

I'm at loss for words right now. My mind is in knots from thinking of all the work issues I'm dealing with. But my breathing has gone slower and perhaps I should take a moment to pause and just be grateful I have kept myself together this week.

I haven't picked up on reading Eat Pray Love as I am spending most of my time figuring out our photo-trip route. Hopefully I will learn how to manage my time better so that I can bear a little bit more fruit in these areas.

Twiddling my thumbs for 6:00 to come a little bit faster and relax in my gazebo when I get home.


  1. if you're ever at a loss for words, i'm sure you'd have a lot of pictures from your photo trip that might speak what your heart is saying :)

  2. Hi Reni, I haven't been in a photo trip a long time. I don't even know if I'm still comfortable holding my camera. But I am determined to break this cycle of creative block. Thank you for reminding me. :)
