Sheldon found the young runaway in Union Square shivering in the cold winter evening.

When the 40-year-old bachelor invited her to stay the night at his place, she accepted to his surprise.

She barely touched the pizza he offered. She was so tired all she wanted was to lie down and sleep.

At that moment, she was forbidden fruit ready for the taking.

“Do whatever you want,” she said, “just don’t wake me up.”

Sheldon left to work the night shift. When he returned, she was gone.

“Thanks for being considerate,” she scribbled on the bathroom mirror. “Stay cool, Emma.”

If Galapagos islands are in the bucket list of many travelers, it doesn’t come as a surprise. Visiting the islands is like a step back in time where hues of gray and white dominate the landscape.

Made famous by Charles Darwin, they’re home to a variety of wildlife such as mammals, reptiles, and birds. Due to lack of natural predators, they have survived unmolested. Humans don’t scare them. They don’t mind if you get up close and personal and take their pictures.

The photos on this page were taken in 2012. They sure brought back many happy memories. I’d love to go back but it’s just that there are other interesting places to go leaving little time for a repeat.

i met you on st. patrick’s day
just when spring was beckoning
and death took you one autumn
when leaves started falling

then autumn became winter
and winter turned to spring again
and spring became summer
but without you it wasn’t the same

many seasons have passed since then
i can count with my fingers
all’s left is your memory
and love, it lingers, it lingers
