RIP Napoleon Abueva

Philippine National Artist and beloved teacher Napoleon Veloso Abueva has died.

Those of us blessed to have learned at the feet of this master have had our lives brightened and altered by his inspiring humanity.

Along with an intrinsic love and respect of beauty he imbibed what is true and traditionally Filipino.

Light up our skies as you were a constant beacon in our lives. RIP beloved Master & Maestro!

freedom fighters forever!

Nothing like the old year coming to an end and the new year yet to come which tend to bring on all our. . . .shit. Not here at wonder | wander | world. 

Thank God! Let's keep it real for 2018. 

To all the guilt trippers and nay sayers - life is too precious and time too short to waste on petty trivia and a stupid mindset. 

Happy New Year 2018! To all us women of substance. Knock em dead!
