Weekly Photo Challenge: Transient

Maravilla Beach

Maravilla Beach, Tabuelan, Cebu, Philippines
 
We live in a transient world where nothing lasts forever. Love. Family. Friends. Sadness. Success. Disappointments. Hopelessness. You name it. They come and go as the tide of the ocean.

There are times, however, when we become so attached to a specific moment in our life, such as a relationship, that we lose our perspective. As a result, we become disheartened when it ends.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we can enjoy this kind of moment and be able to let go when the time comes?


 
In last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, Anthony Hopkins, who turns 80 this year, was asked to share an important life lesson he has learned.

“Keep going,” he told Kimmel without hesitation.

“I like that,” the host said. Me, too. If I may, I want to add holding on to the good memories and leaving the bad ones behind.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Order

Stockholm, Sweden

Location: Stockholm, Sweden
 
Whenever I travel, I make it a point to visit the neighborhood market away from the usual tourist spots. It offers a glimpse of local life and the people living in it.

Above is a picture that I took in Stockholm, Sweden. I marveled at the care and attention that the vendor was giving to his offerings, arranging them in a neat and orderly manner, making them more attractive to prospective buyers.

In a way, it could sum up my impressions of Sweden after visiting it for the first time last summer. The people are well-dressed, polite, modest, and law-abiding with a high sense of order and organization. While they’re open-minded, they also value their privacy and keep to themselves especially in the presence of strangers. As a borderline introvert, these are traits that I find endearing and feel comfortable with. Trust me, I’m going back to this beautiful country again.
