Yosemite was AWESOME and Seattle...LOVED IT! It was so good to get away from all that was familiar. I had a fabulous time! Met some interesting, wild, and great loving people. It's amazing how free you feel when you're out of your element. No roles, distractions, or pretenses. You are who you are. Who knew living out of a sea bag could be so much fun?!? :)
I devoured books like crazy! Must reads are: The Color of Water by James McBride, The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers, and for my fellow pinoys/pinays, Dream Jungle by Jessica Hagedorn.
I hope to travel to DC or the Grand Canyon in March. Haven't decided yet but I'll keep you posted.
To all those I met while I was away, thank you for your kindness, hospitality, and inspiration. To my friends and family in Sunny Diego, I am so grateful for each and every one of you.

With all my love and appreciation,
