My pen is on a deep slumber and my muse is on an indefinite leave. Perfect. What's left of me then? Nothin' really - I was never a writer and will never be. But to counter this so-called boredom of mostly staying in my room for the past two months, and after receiving a rousing text message from a friend, I decided to at least distill my thoughts for a change. I have a passion in writing - I used to write,and sometimes draft, poems and fragments but not essays and complete yearnings. Words always have their ways to escape when I plan to write one. Hehehe.

As of the moment, my camera is my bestfriend, it gives me satisfaction that I didn't experience before. I mean through its lens, I am exposed to the hidden beauty of certain things. Well, writing provides me a different self-contentment though, as I have to power to be the inventor of scenarios.

Just now, these two friends of mine, my camera and my muse, finally meet and promise to be a great duo for a long time. Well, I hope that in one way or another, they will continue to inspire this one-eyed engineer, especially in his unproductive days of waiting.

Pen + Flash = Distilling Thoughts

The above equation will solely be the guideline for me to keep this page running.

  9. Totomai,

    You may not be aware of it, but your outputs as a writer is already rich. Stop worrying or feeling guilty if you take a leave from writing sometimes ~ even engines need to change oil and refueling. You have the passion, and as long as you have it you will write, and you will contenue to grow as writer.

    As a photographer, that's out of question.

    I wish you well.

    Your own writing is fine! And I love my camera, too.
