We danced close to Sleeping beauty mountain
with the sounds of gongs
and drank her spring flowing water.
We watched her creations grow organically and fed our souls with her abundance.
This mountain province
Taken care by everyone
Cleansed individually and collectively
Energetically blessed by Elders and babies all around.
Rooted in their past, present and future spirits.
Hypnotized to watch her beauty.
in the land of the Tribal Mashup,
I felt the pull
to go back home.
I was moved by my energetic force
to that Mountain Province
of the Philippines.
1 place to be.
1 creative work.
without a Map...I took a Leap!
