…akala nyo ha kayo lang sa dyan sa ‘higher latitudes’ kung baga ang me autumn….. hmmmmm… yan ang akala nyo…… meron din kami sa Davao… lol.
It was a national holiday yesterday, in honor of the ‘month of sacrifice’ of our Muslim brothers and sisters; we went out to meet a friend in Shrine Hills, on our way home the kids insisted on dropping by the Sto. Nino Shrine to lit candles.
Out of the blue, the eldest said, ‘so you just thought those guys living in the higher latitudes only experience autumn, huh!’ Look at that …. Ok son, I can’t exactly agree I have no sense of comparison I have not experienced what it’s like on autumn. He replied and said, ‘its ok mom, looks like autumn is a sad feeling, the trees are dying.’
My readings suggested it so son,… indeed our surroundings affect of our behavior. So there, nothing much happened on this side of town.
