I have been meaning to blog about my emotional instability (chos) but the past days I’ve only been stuck in water. Literally.
It’s storm season again in the Philippines, and this has to be the worst flooding our home has ever experienced. Actually, this is just knee deep. Some time within the day, it even reached up to my thighs.
I wonder though if it was the rain or the width of my legs that made the water rise. Eureka! Hahaha.
This is our first regular day for the week, the first day we’re actually experiencing power. Since Monday till about 4 hours ago, we’ve been living in black and white, and I’ve had much to ponder, not to mention finished four books in a row. I’m waiting for the jubilant feeling to die down a bit (LIGHT! THERE’S LIGHT!) just so I can be in the right state of mind to share with you my insights.
Not that you’re eager to hear me moping, but you get what I mean.
The books that I finished in the 80 hour non-powered days were:
- An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
- Paper Towns by John Green
- The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz
- South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami
It’s like I saved the best for last.
For now, please continue praying for the ones who are yet to regain power and are still flooded here in the Philippines. I can tell this is the first of many, so vigilance is key.
But then again there’s nothing unusual here. After all, the Filipino spirit is unsinkable.
