A weekend in the woods and at sea



The weekend before the last was truly, truly awesome. I had to stay in a little cabin in the woods for a day with my friends from church in a place not too far from where I live. There were about 15 of us and the morning greeted us with sounds of birds chirping and little sunlight here and there seeping in between the clouds. It was a little foggy and cold and the it smelled of soil and barks of trees and freshly cut grass. 

I get to ride at the back of a motorcycle again after probably 18 years and the view is way better when in a motorcycle when passing by tall trees than in a car.


Later in the morning I met up with my other friends and newly-found friends to go swimming and cliff-diving in a small place in an island 15-minute boat ride plus 30 minute by land to where I live. I ended up not diving since I didn't bring extra clothes so I spent the rest of the time cheering for my friends who did. 
We also stayed under this little cave where we felt like mermaids.  It was so calm and beautiful that we wish we'd just live there forever.

We were young seemed like life would go on, last forever

Dear Emma,
Those two words, ‘Dear Emma’ take me away to another time when we use to write to each other after mom and dad died. I used to tell you about my new friends and my new life. And you used to tell me about the grand time my mom and dad were having in heaven.
Truth is nothing. What you believe to be true is everything. And the main thing that I used to believe was that I would be with you forever. Forever.
The reason it is taking me so long to write you is that I have seen that I have been a fool. I have spent my life fooling myself. Every letter I’ve ever written to you has been a love letter. How could they have been anything else?
I can see now that all of them, except this one, were bad love letters. Bad love letters beg for love back. Good love letters ask for nothing. This, I’m pleased to announce, is my first good love letter to you. Because there is nothing more for you to do. You already done everything. I have enough of you in my head to last forever. So please don’t ever worry about me. I’m ‘peachy’! I really am. I have everything.
If I had one wish, it would be that your life brings you a taste of happiness that you have brought to me. That you could feel what it’s like to love.
Your friend forever,
Will
I was tremendously inspired by the movie Waiting for Forever.
