"I am an instrument in the shape
of a WOMAN trying to translate pulsations
into images
for the relief of the body
and the reconstruction of the mind."

cold big bear

just came down from the mountains at big bear. it was even colder than baguio... whoo, 30 degrees farenheit at night.

tita corito and tito freddie owns a house up in big bear, so we stayed there for the weekend. actually, we stayed one night in their house, and the other night at kuya gio's timeshare condo. half of that second night we spent chatting instead of sleeping, hehe.

i went for a walk yesterday morning along maple lane in big bear, and i think i heard a real bear call. i must have been hallucinating, since bears don't really come out in the morning and in town at that. anyway, i enjoyed the architecture in the area. dadi would love the colors of those houses.

autumn here is so lovely and wonderful, gold, red, orange, green, and yellow all at the same time. everything in the colors of the sunset. and the red maple leaves are marvelous at this time of the year. i took a leaf and pressed it in my book, and i'll put it in my scrapbook once i get home.

big bear lake is also just as lovely. it was windy, though; so really windy and cold. at the time we were at the lake, a man was fishing, and we watched him catch a carp, whiskered and orange.

we also carved pumpkins in time for halloween this wednesday, my first time to do so. we'll light them up tonight, and i'm so excited. those large pumpkins are really heavy! we scraped them out and hollowed them, and we saved the seeds, because steph said she'll make butong pumpkin later.

i'll be waiting for that butong (pumpkin) kalabasa later, when we see them again on halloween.

happy halloween everyone. and visit the dead on november one and two.
