Breaking out from an urban rut, I went out with some friends to visit Jala-Jala, Rizal to shoot some landscapes.The place was enchanted in more ways than one. You can feel them.  Indeed, you can hear them.

At another time and place, I would have invoked the Name of our Creator and run roughshod over whom those I considered pretenders to their own little thrones. Name it and claim in for the Kingdom of God. That was another time.  Older--and wiser perhaps--I now know and look forward to the day when...
...God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord, the glory of God the Father.
When all creatures on earth and under the earth can freely greet one another "tabi-tabi po" out of courtesy and not fear.  In the meantime, the curtain between heaven and earth has been torn.  The battle is over--"it is finished".  We can begin to reach out and touch enchantment without fear and in love.
