Breathing Space

"Skyline / Skyward" - Ortigas Centre, 26 January 2016
“Skyline / Skyward” – Ortigas Centre, 26 January 2016

come outside

into the

sunshine

and play

and sing

and dance

your woes

away.

 

breathe

deeply and

freely and

calmly;

empty your

head

of the

cobwebs

trials and

tribulations

of mundane

existence;

be one

for once

with sky

with earth

with light

with air

lest you

wither,

lest you

wilt.

 

rejoice,

o rejoice,

in the

freedom

of escape.
