Born on an island...

This is where I was born. The island of Leyte. One of the 7,107 islands in the Philippines. The skies there are stunning... cerulean blue skies laced with thick cumulus clouds, heavy with stars at night, and with the occasional meteor shower... I remember Halley's Comet being a big deal... the village sharing my godmother's telescope, taking turns to catch a glimpse of what was to be a once-in-a-lifetime event...
