Retreat's Afterglow

Buddhist temple across river, Bangkok
Homeward bound, Banaoang River, Santa, Ilocos Sur

"Happy is the man who calls today his own,"
the poet Dryden once wrote;
yes, for we can not live even a single day
with a downtrodden heart.
unless we unload our troubles
that the distance lend enchantment
to the views and thoughts we sought;
and then in every object across our way,
we find a brighter meaning,
and truth itself shall not depart. ~
