Paris on my mind

November 2015
"We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace." - William Gladstone

I took this picture of the Eiffel Tower exactly a year ago in November. It was beautiful time of the year to be in Paris. I am thinking of our dear friends there now and praying for all of you...

Flying over Samo├źns, France


When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen: There will be something solid for you to stand upon, or, you will be taught how to fly.

My empty nest

The greatest gift you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.
-Nishan Panwar

We decided to choose a hike along the Lands End Trail. It was only a couple of weeks before Fall semester started and I thought some quiet time together would be nice before he left. We talked about everything and nothing... Then I let him walk ahead of me and captured this shot. I could feel the lump in my throat as I watched him trudge along the path. I believe no parent is ever quite ready when their children go. For there is nothing more precious to a mother than her children.

Your easy spectator's guide to The Open Championship

It's September! Where did the time go?  It's been months since my last post.  I have been traveling quite a bit and enjoying every minute of it. So no complaints here.

Sharing with you my article on the 2015 British Open.  Find in the September issue of Impact Golf & Lifestyle magazine.  Available in your favorite newstand and bookstores in Metro Manila.

It's day two of the The Open Championship. I sat on the grandstand of the 17th hole today at St. Andrews.  Matt Kuchar (-3), Phil Mickelson (-3) and Henrik Stenson (-2) were approaching.  Matt ended in the bunker and blasted it out near the grandstand to end up with triple bogey.  It was too painful to watch.  Even Tom Watson said that in all the years he had played St. Andrews, it was the first time he played with the pin placement on hole 17th being where it was. Matt Kuchar is one of the nicest tour players and I have been rooting for him.  He ended the round with even par.  The projected cut is +1 and I am hoping Matt is in and able to bounce back this weekend.
