Often than not, we sail where the wind takes us

rowing on Bulusan Lake

I thought I knew you. But I guess it's easier to see what we want than to look for the truth. You think you know me but you don't. And that means you don't know what I can do. You see me as someone popular and has all the answers but that's not true. I may not always know what I'm doing but I'll try to make things better. And when I make a mistake, because face it, we all do, I promise I'll ask for your help. I can't do this alone, but if you'll take a chance on me, we can do great things together. I promise if you believe in me, I'll find the courage to reach for your every dream.

~ quote from "One Tree Hill"

You guess it right. I've been watching too much of this series lately. Not so much for the plot and the characters but mostly because of the "music and the quotes".

When we were in Lake Bulusan in Sorsogon, I have taken the time to observe this boy whom I caught fishing from afar. Being alone on a raft caught my attention, his skills in fishing made me decide to watch and observe. He caught a few fishes I think, but he was just too far from my place to count. There's not much people around, mostly local kids and this man catching shrimps from a shallow part of the lake. The other tourists who were with us have already left. Honestly, the vastness of the lake and its color scared me. Not this boy.

I don't know "One Tree Hill", maybe I should. But then there is no time in my life for TV, I'm glad I can see a movie from time to time.
I like that raft. Great self made construction. The colour of that lake does look rather greenish.
And I guess I don't know you :-)

The vastness of sea scares me too ( when I was at the island ) b/c I realised how big the world can be and how deep the sea is ... But you know, the tranquility of the sea soothes my being as peace overwhelms me.

How true!

Nice shot of the boy, the water looks a bit polluted though.

Oooh! I like this one. Ito yung one of those moments captured. Just look at that expression. Parang nakakatakot lang yung green na tubig nga. hehe.

I don't think that water's a pollution though. Tama ba?

Lakes scare me too. I find them eerie in their vastness and quietness. I feel that there's some sort of a Loch Ness Monster lurking beneath. Your moment with this boy in that lake was profound.
