Forever Young

That illy feeling.
Started my day having three cups of black coffee at home and wondered why the sleepy feeling was haunting me.  It could be the semi-weird weather that was neither cloudy nor sunny, the food I had for breakfast (Bangus belly, two sunny ups and garlic fried rice-yum!) or maybe simply am just too lazy to move a bone.  Had to drag myself out of the house since today was a day of work, and some things had to be done.  We planned to pullout clothes from Greenbelt 5 mall in Makati for our shoot tomorrow and wanted to be early to avoid the maddening afternoon crowd.  Luckily traffic wasn't bad so we arrived earlier than expected (the mall was still closed) and decided to have a round of coffee M cafe to wake us up.

Natural Beauty.

After a few more cups of waker-uppers ( I had 3 more ha ha ha!) and waiting for the rest of the team to arrive, my eyes finally opened.  I immediately noticed this beautiful plant on our table and was mesmerized by the simplicity of its beauty. The green hues (think Dries Van Noten prints and palette), pattern-like leaves( ala ruffles of Valentino or Oscar de la Renta) and complimentary appeal with the wooden table was so Zen-like I couldn't help but take a picture of it.

My team and I started brainstorming on our shoot tomorrow and the shoots to come.  The exchange of ideas was waking me up and I could feel their youthful vibe flowing through my veins.  The sparkle in their eyes, cute giggles and heart-warming smiles was a moment to see.  Their excitement and eagerness to execute their visions and creativity has given me a purposeful energy to step forward.  They are my inspirations- to continue to be, move on and live life forever young.
