Everlasting

21 December ———- THE SUNSET ———- June 21

Ang interest ko sa times & seasons ay bilang isang natural observer

1984. Wala lang… napagtripan ko lang naman na bisitahin at syutan ang tatlong spots na ito malapit sa bayan ng Los Baños (Laguna). Four seasons study kuno. Kaya “rain or shine” – saktong alas-dose ng katanghaliang-tapat, dapat nanduon ako sa mga dates na ito:

March 21 – Vernal equinox (spring). Length of daytime = length of nighttime.

June 21 – Summer solstice (summer). Longest day; shortest night.

September 21 – Autumnal equinox (fall). Length of day = length of night.

December 21 – Winter solstice (winter). Shortest day; longest night.

Totoo nga. 😕 …walang pronounced na difference dito sa Pilipinas. Harummmp! Hindi… mali lang yung lugar na napili ko! (Nagpakahirap lang ako 😆 palibhasa wala lang akong magawa nuon). Pwede na rin, test of discipline.  Apat na beses lang naman at nung taon lang na yun… charge it to experience. 😉

Yung unang mubing-pikyur sa itaas, walang kahirap-hirap. Maski bising-bisi ako sa dami ng ginagawa, pagdating ng hapon, sisilip lang ako sa bintana.

That is how I see the western skies, all-year-round – in fast forward.

Winter, spring, summer, or fall…

‘The Fall’ in round 1

A new day dawns this morning, signalling the ‘death’ of summer.

Today is September 21, a ‘moment’ in a year known to astronomers and meteorologists as autumnal equinox, and the autumn season “officially” begins today (In the Southern hemisphere, it’s the reverse: spring begins). In all parts of the earth, the daytime hours and nighttime hours are equal (12 hours each). The sun rises and sets at the exact eastern and western horizon.

This photo was taken yesterday (Sep 20), the last day of summer. The sun set at a point in the western horizon (at the middle of the photo) somewhere behind the trees (compare this with my SUNSET photos of December, March and June).

One year ago…

Isang ikot

Birthday ngayon ng unang post ni Hello Hammie ko. Bukas naman ( Sep 8 ), isang ikot na rin simula nung ipasulat at ipa-post nya sa akin ang sarili nilang bersyon nina Malakas at Maganda (click that for the original version).

Hindi na ako masyadong magbibida, para may panahon kayong samahan akong mag-ikot-ikot dito sa IkawTubo bidyo. Ni-produced ito ng magigiting na mga salinlahi nina Mauslakas at Magandaga. 😆

Aru… lumala yata ang vertigo ko. 🙄 Tsokey lang… Basta naka-one full turn na akong sakay ng blogosperyo. 😀 Isang taon na pala akong nagkakalat ng superbabaw kong kaligayahan sa internet?

Pasensya na po kayo sa mga korning jokes ko. 😳

Galing sa Yahoo Mail inbox ni misis:

There comes a TIME in our LIFE when we have TO LET GO of all the pointless drama and the people who created it and surround ourselves with people who make us laugh so hard that we forget the bad news and focus on the pleasant memories. After all, life is too short for us not to be HAPPY!

🙄 …Nyay! 😳 Ahehe… Hindi naman sigruro “pointless” yung mga dramanobela na nikukwento ko dito, di ba? Atsaka mas marami naman “pleasant memories”. 🙂
