An inconvenient time


There will be time, there will be time

To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet;

                                                                          T.S. Eliot


Pili forest, Odikin, Bulusan, September 1, 2014


It was tough I admit it. This was the first time in my photo shooting forays that my fingers were so hesitant to do what I loved most in this magical place. My mind and my fingers were  in an agitated mood. I am farthest from my flow state.  I encountered a shutterbug block in the middle of the forest.

All I wanted that time was to disappear in the leaf litters of the pili trees.  I knew then that only these giant trees will understand what was raging inside me.

One thought on “An inconvenient time

  1. And nothing can we call our own but death
    And that small model of the barren earth
    Which serves as paste and cover to our bones.
    For God’s sake, let us sit upon the ground
    And tell sad stories of the death of kings;
    How some have been deposed; some slain in war,
    Some haunted by the ghosts they have deposed;

    – from Richard II
