The Ruins at night.
The ancestral home mansion of the family of wealthy sugar baron Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson who built it in early 1900s, in memory of his Portuguese wife Maria Braga Lacson, who had died during the birth of her eleventh child. It was constructed on a 440-hectare plantation in Talisay City, Negros Occidental and burned down by the guerillas during the Second World War to prevent its use as military office by the invading Japanese forces. It burnt for 3 days down to its current empty cement shell.

Il mostro dorme placido appoggiato sul fondo del lago, il respiro silente e profondo, la coda distesa sulla superficie. E affiora la corazza, segnata dal tempo.
The monster sleeps placid leaning on the bottom of the lake, the breath is silent and deep, the tail lying on the surface. And the armor, marked due to the time, emerges.
If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets as Michelangelo painted of Beethoven composed music. He should sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven & earth stop to say, 'here lived a a great street sweeper who did his job well. Dr. Martin Luther king Jr
Man the start of the year has been crazy and it’s not slowing down anytime soon!
Have a few more weeks full of travel and some awesome opportunities then hopefully it’s back to the mountains where time definitely slows down and escapes for awhile!
Side note: it was about 4 degrees during their photo I was freezing lol 🥶
E andando nel sole che abbaglia
sentire con triste meraviglia
com’è tutta la vita e il suo travaglio
in questo seguitare una muraglia
che ha in cima cocci aguzzi di bottiglia #meriggiarepallidoeassorto 💖 E.M
