Zola Café, Baguio City
Beers and cigarettes. Nothing new here, except that it’s been a long time since I’ve been back home. Nothing really ever changes.
There are times that I’m tempted to think that Christmas is just another day, but definitely not today. Not when your whole world changes, all your perspective changes, and you have a lot of things – an eternity – to look forward to. I don’t want to put all my eggs in one basket, but I guess I can put a nest egg on at least one. I guess there never really is a risk in that when you figure that everything really does fall into place.
It’s no ordinary day, or an ordinary Christmas day, at least for me. Life gives me a bit more meaning. Fate gives me an extra card on the table to play where it will always be a good hand. It will happen, so she says, and I trust that it will. What else can I do but enjoy the moment? Definitely other things else, but for now, I’d rather keep them unwritten.
Happiness is a wonderful miracle in a world full of sadness and despair. Merry Christmas, everyone!
