I always find joy in flying because it makes me see a different perspective of everyday things. With a different perspective comes a different set of thoughts and mumblings.
Yesterday, I took pictures while on the flight since I got the window seat. Let me share to you a piece of my mind when I see things from above.
Photo 1: Metro Manila
I wonder which of the plains of Metro Manila were palayan before. Is this a major reason why we became importers of rice than an exporter?
Where are the mango trees of Manggahan and the santol trees of Santolan?
Photo 2: The park at the Manila Bay
All I know is that this park is along Manila Bay but I do not know where it is. I already saw the sunset of Manila Bay from Mall of Asia but I think this place has a totally different feeling and beauty of the sunset.
Photo 3: Fish Pens
Also in Manila Bay. I wonder how it feels like to be someone who is guarding fish pens. Everyday I get to hang out in the middle of the sea. Sometimes no one to talk too. There’s that danger during typhoons and I don’t get to talk to many people everyday. At least I get to see the Manila Bay sunset every afternoon if it’s not cloudy.
Photo 4: Corregidor Island
I wanted to go to you last January but since you boat rides going to you are expensive I cannot visit you. I wanted to walk around and see the war memorials you have.
Photo 5: Sea of clouds above the sea
How does it feel to be a cloud? Just relaxing and flying very slowly at the sky. Seeing things from a different perspective. Are you apathetic to what is happening to us or not? I guess not, because when we needed spanking because we were bad people you send typhoons on us to teach us a lesson.
Photo 6: Questionable Island
Are you a letter S or are you a duck?
Photo 7: Island in Honda Bay
I wonder what island are you. When I see you from the usual perspective will you be as charming as when I see you from the sky? Do you have beautiful corals that makes me enjoy when I swim there. You sand looks so fine but is it really fine?
Seeing a different perspective from the flight, it made my mood to be more positive than it was. I’m now recharged and ready to travel again.
