This is what art is about

The National Museum is a just across the University I am attending, and it’s a shame that I only had time to visit it today. Unfortunately, I went there 30 minutes before closing time, so I was not able to explore everything.

This short trip reminded me that the creative and artistic talents of Filipinos and our rich cultural gems are national treasures we all should be proud of.

I will definitely be back soon and I will see to it that I have ample time to admire the talent of the Filipino artists.

poetry in movement

A very powerful art movement created by Chehon Wespi-Toschopp


Built with a

strong foundation,


by time,

by the natural elements,

the abode

of the soul





Stare not
into the
deep sad eyes,
for the sorrow
can cause you
an even deeper
