The Modern Eliza Bennet

I am a woman who prefers to savor life one morsel at a time. I wonder and wander with a purpose. Avid surfer. Frequent backpacker. Art lover. Soon a globetrotting lawyer. :)
I first saw this Tyago Almario painting in a gallery in Quezon City, Metro Manila almost 2 years ago. I thought it was a huge photograph until the artist himself corrected me. It was an unfinished painting that time. In this painting is the artist’s grandfather mourning the loss of his beloved wife. The artist recalled to me the day of his grandmother’s burial. His grandfather was desperately trying to cover his pain, sadness and regret in the guise of strength and pride. It’s a remarkable painting that every one should see. I still can’t forget this painting until this very day. Hauntingly beautiful. “The Widower” by Tyago Almario

Anonymous asked: What do you want for the holidays?

Holidays already passed. :) But if you ask me what I want for this year’s holidays, I want to pass the 2012 Bar exams. :)

Love Note #18

graciouswords:

Once upon a circumstance

I seized the day, embraced the chance

to touch your heart, to have, to hold

to love and let your love unfold;

and so it did, on angels wings

to perch upon entwined heart strings

singing loves sweet serenade

for now and forever and then

one more day.

I’ve always wanted to do this! :) Weeee! :)
