A House Now Gone
Posted by BCS on June 29, 2009
In my first ever post on Sanchez Mira, I posted this photo to show what some houses in Sanchez Mira look like.
If I had taken this photo earlier (by just a few months) from the very same spot where I took it, it would’ve shown an entirely different image.
Notice the vacant lot on the foreground of the photo…
On that lot once stood a thatch-roofed wooden house which was so simple, so modest… so unpretentious. And it was beautiful for being so.
I was saddened to see the house already gone when we went there for the Christmas/New Year vacation last year and I regretted so much that I wasn’t able to take any pictures of it.
I thought that I will never see the house again.
But, I was wrong. And I can’t be any happier in being so.
Rodney, my wife’s cousin, sent me a photo of the house after he found out that I was blogging about his home town, Sanchez Mira.
To Rodney, sorry it took me so long to post this, I’ve been up to my neck with a lot of things lately. Nevertheless, I thank you endlessly for sending me this photo. I appreciate it a great lot!
