One with Earth

The earth and me are one. We partied the whole day as I dig her from the roots of the lovely, now… Bald tree. Its for the recent art project of Tadasu San for Aomori Contemporary Art Centre: Platform 2. One of the art projects that is very exciting to see. I am very much thankful for being a part of it. It was not my usual day in the Philippines, especially that today is my birthday. I am not used to getting myself embrace earth like this. I am not the type of person that says hello to insects with a smile. I sleep when I get tired and feel Lazy.

Well I am not in the Philippines… and I am not getting any younger. I will not waste my time sleeping here in this lovely City. 🙂

Today I celebrated my day by being one with the Earth. I said my peace to the ants, termites, bees, crickets, and to other insects I am not familiar with. I kissed the earth and held her to my hands, face and body. I smelled her aroma and tasted her tears from the sky. The earth smiled at me today saying… “Happy Birthday J., remember me?,” I answered.. “yes, can you please be softer today, its my birthday remember?.”

And so she did… and we finished with a fried feast. 🙂

Tommorrow, my Japanese Family will celebrate with me. We will eat food, gifts from my old friend… the sea.

Sushi Party! Kanpai!
