Dreaming of Batad

Yes, I took this photo. This is not a Google Image.

 

I once dreamt of Batad, only to be awoken by the din of NYC traffic outside my window.

2 months later I wake up in Batad, looking out a window into the rice terraces that stretch like a stairway to heaven.

To dream a dream created by Google Images, you cannot fathom how you would ever get there. And now I am staring into a view only God can put into men’s minds, thankful for the fortitude that has pushed me to live in what I once thought was an impossibility.
