San Juan Surfing Area at Twilight and Purpose-Driven Photo-taking     One of my favorite places in our locality is the San Juan, Surfing Area. This is where I take most of my sunset shots and is the location of my Passing Happiness Around Post. Almost a week ago I met up with cool "Japol"ogy the brother of a dear blogging friend Ruthi of My Refuge Online and A Carpenter's Wife's Tool Box whom I met through Betchai of The Joys of Simple Life and Breathe in Breathe Out and chatted about the happiness of taking photos and everything else in between. Perhaps many of you are wondering where I get the time to blog. It is something that I love akin to some people's love for music, for sports, for gardening, for cooking, craft creation and the like.

When you love something you will find time for it no matter what especially so when you have a purpose. My friends and I at Salitype Society have two scholars whom we support through our page earnings; details on which you could find in the Walking the Dream  article at Salitype Society page. My joy of doing something I love is therefore multiplied a hundredfold with the thought that our friendship is helping kids make their dream a reality. My meeting with Japol is the closest to date I have gotten to my Salitype buddies. I am so looking forward to meeting my twinzy Cher of Sweet Memoirs
and Betchai this year... and one sweet day together with the rest of our TSS sisters...Eng of Poetic Murmurings, Tes of Crafista, MJ my power ranger  pal, little Beth of It's the Little Things; Car of Flip Flops and Backpacks, and Chay who currently lovingly baby sits our TSS home. 
I'd love to introduce them too to fellow bloggers in the area like Jeff of Moonshine and Saltwater Bojo of Simple Thoughts and Jen of The Ripples of Koi.

How I'd love to be watching the sunset with them at San Juan Surfing Area enjoying the breeze, the lights and the gorgeous sky and yes surfing!

  4. I so agree with you, Zen, there is always a time for something if we set a time for it :) If I won't set a time for blogging, I know I would never be able to blog too because I can make a thousand of excuses, but because I find it more purposeful (I also have 2 scholars on my own from my TJOSL and BIBO earnings), and I find it giving me deeper joy knowing that my "tambay" online is not so much wasted time :) Plus of course, I am able to save more since most of my lakwatsa expenses and personal whims I get from my happine$$ which helps me save more for the rainy days. love you Zen. Keep sharing happiness around and may the flame of passion to blog, to be joyful, and to make a difference stay always.
