Meaning of Life

Washington, DC


"The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit."

 Wisdom is a key to travel light in this world

                         -- Lia 


 I just bought a new 6-wheel luggage to give me ease carrying my heavy luggage. 

Interestingly, the brand of my new luggage is “Wisdom.”


 We find wisdom in many ways, in many places and in many things.  

I simply do.

Photos are taken in Sagada, Philippines. 
Looking forward to spring!

To whom do you owe gratitude? parents, teachers, mentors, friends, relatives, colleagues?

No one is self-made. You are where you are now because someone, somewhere, 
helped you along the way.
