My Beautiful April Fool

I spent a Zen afternoon in Manila Bay, just feeling spiritual peace and gratitude to the Higher Power. 

It was overcast, and I lost all sense of time just happily watching the seagulls.

It would have been perfect if not for the jingles from the ice cream carts, so I’ll never buy from them for ten years.

Wonder of wonders, I found an empty bench, and I just sat there, watching a group of Japanese tourists just clicking away in front of me.

Beyond, the sky was a magnificent abstract painting, with wispy clouds accentuating two yellow orange spiral formations adjacent to each other, with a horizontal bar in between, like a portrait of a grinning Garfield.

Using my imagination, I saw … Sonic Hedgehog!

I was waiting for the world famous sunset, but even when the sun hid in the twilight and I can’t see it, I find comfort in knowing that it is there, like God and my loved ones who have died, because it has always been there, all this time.
