I know I’m suppose to write about meditation, prayer, and penitence, but no, all I can think about is how I had a love affair to a woody perennial.
We went to “Kamay ni Hesus” in Lucban Quezon as part of our Holy Week Penitence. The sun was particularly angry that day and since it is a sort of a hiking gig, I wore shorts. Big mistake. I learned later that this is not allowed. I had to stay and wait for them in the car.
It was very hot inside the car, but not knowing when they are going to come back, I thought it’s not very smart to turn on the aircon and burn up the gas. Good thing I have my laptop, cellphone, iPod, ice, water, chips, tweezers, alcohol, makeup kit … hhoo yes, I can survive.
NO. It turns out the sun was not just angry, I was fairly convinced it was trying to kill me. Sweat glands developed ADHD and after two hours of its wrath, I decided to head out to look for an overpriced ice cream.
I half ran-walk outside for the search but instead bumped into a guyabano tree. I will never forget how happy I felt with it’s breeze! Standing under it was actually the happiest part of my day. You must realize guyabano tree, I almost made love to you.

I guess Holy Week is not all about rituals, vigils OR vacations… It’s about trying to relearn Him, no matter how great or absurd the circumstance in your life may be. That day, I relearned HE is in nature. And that day, I fell in love with a tree.
