About Me

CURRENT MISSION

“Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.” ― Anaïs Nin

ABOUT ME

There are dreamers and poets and landscape painters and wanderers like me who came here by chance and never left. They are all looking for something, traveling the world and the seven seas but looking for a reason to stay. I’m not looking, I’ve found what it is I want and I can’t have it. I actually have many incarnations but let me acquaint you to the one most people know. I'm Ram from a quiet town in the southern part of the Philippines. A self-taught visual artist, an imagination junkie, a daysleeper, and an occasional cultural relativist. I’m also a part-time romantic who enjoys poetry, sipping cups of coffee, gastronomy, and reading dog-eared books. I'd be more than glad to engage in small talks that could blossom in wonderful conversations. We could talk anything from carpentry to architecture, from arts to the natural sciences--anything that catches your fancy. I'm fond of books as well--that dogeared, rustically scented books. So if you share one or two of my interest, drop me a line, I'm not necessarily looking for something romantic here, friendship would be nice.

PHILOSOPHY

Carpe Diem, not really personal but close to home
