Jo Anne V. Coruña  visual artist & writer // #byJoAnneVC I paint things and write the stories they tell about who we are, where we are, and why we’re here.

Reposting from @together.rising.

It’s about time. I’ve printed this packet out before but always found excuses not to get into it. They say the best way to learn a language is to immerse yourself in it. For me though, I have to read to learn the phrases first, otherwise, I just get lost in the words I don’t understand. Posting this here for some sort of accountability, I suppose. Wish me luck! (And yes, it should be Hiligaynon Language Packet!) // Subong! Indi buwas, indi sa dason nga adlaw, indi sa sunod nga tuig...subong! 🙌🏼

a reminder from an iridescent capiz shell from the Philippines: the things you see depend on how you choose to cast and catch the light // happy weekend, everyone! ✨

There is wisdom to be found in the details of each person’s day; you just have to look and pay attention. // From Day 1 at the Museum of Days (@museumofdays), beautifully shared by Terri Jayme-Mora, Country Manager of Ashoka Philippines (@ashokaph)

There is nothing quite like standing at the edge of the ocean, your feet awashed in a sensation that you have no control of, a feeling that comes to you while you’re just standing there, looking out into an expanse that opens your whole being up and out, an immensity that swallows you into the magnificence of our world and then brings you right back to where you are, your feet against the sand.

Last night, the family watched Jurassic World 2 and as soon as we stepped outside after the movie, this strange yet very familiar feeling suddenly came over me. With every step I took walking back to our Airbnb — our home for the last five months — the feeling just got stronger and more defined. When we got to our street, I turned to my husband and said, “This is it. Our final stretch. We’re going Home.” And he understood. So suddenly, we are transitioning again. From arriving here last December and making a home, albeit temporary, to now preparing to depart, to go back to our real home, the Philippines. // I’ve made this journey so many times that I’ve grown hypersensitive to changes others might ignore or cannot specifically decipher, until weeks or months or even years after. // Last night, the air has changed here in Seoul. The winds that are taking us home have started to breeze through the streets. And I have started packing up memories. // Pilipinas, we’re on our way back to you.
