One thing is sure -- you will get a gorgeous view of Boracay's sunset right there on the beach. That's what I did (for the three days we were there).... I would sit on the beach, feet playfully sifting the cool sand, and my eyes keenly looking out at the distant horizon waiting for old Sol as she got ready to exit the day. I watched with greater interest and anticipation as the skies prepared itself setting the stage for the Grand Dame's performance.
And Lo! the show began. I was not disappointed, not at all. Here recorded in all of her glory -- magnificently different everyday with beauty unsurpassed -- are the many faces of the royal sunset of Boracay Island.
Do you know what a sunset tells me? It tells me that life is okay, that we can survive the many pitfalls strewn our way, that we need not bash our heads trying to figure out what to do because it always gets solved in the end one way or another by us or something or someone or Somebody up there, that we get more results with a jar of patience than with a huge truck of hustling and bustling until our heads and hearts hurt, and that when the chips are down let's trust in our inner strength hope and faith to make it one more day. Just one more day -- that can make a whole lot of difference. Anything is possible, so give yourself that one more day - Mom would always tell me that. Looking at a sunset always makes me cry.... not because I feel sorry for myself but because I know that like the glorious sunset I too am going to rest my soul for the night .... and too like old Sol will rise in the early morn and shine brilliantly so much more than ever before. Then I would see Mom smiling approvingly at me riding on the colors of a magnificent sunset. This time the royal sunset of Boracay Island.
Note: In the next 'ish.. family time :-)
