The Mountain 



  • Open up your wings because it is the starting point.
  • Looking high above the world, the wind whistles with a different sound.
  • It will lift you up, right out of yourself, if you can make it to the top.
  • Now sail over the pain and the things that don’t make sense, down on the ground.


  • Like a bird, flight- free you can go wherever it is you choose,
  • Just let your imagination make its own unplanned flight plan.
  • The birds and whistling leaves sing a chorus to your breeze
  • urging you to please, put away all fear and open up your nascent wing span.


  • A view of privileged eagle’s eyes, and yet you are let in today.
  • You do not hear the petty sounds of stressful city drama… boiling
  • You do not get pulled down from sour faces and troubled frowns,
  • Oh no, just let it go, and glide upon these currents lifting you uncoiling.


  • Sacred spot for all who ponder how it rose from nothing to its heights,
  • Each whispered secret from a pine, each bird call is your gilded invitation,
  • To take off in your fantasy flight and make it real… oh so real,
  • Soar and free yourself today, all of it is calling you, as you are part of this creation.


  • If the awe is choking in your throat it’s because you finally can see,
  • The mountain is like a King who watches o’er his lands
  • And bowing in humble reverence you yield to your chosen destiny,
  • You are his favorite eagle being released now, from his royal gentle hands.


  • Open up your wings because it is the starting point
  • looking high above the world, the wind whistles with a different sound.
  • It will lift you up right out of yourself, if you can make it to the top.
  • Now sail over the pain and the things that don’t make sense down on the ground.

At the top



At ground level
  • At ground level, feel free to explore the quasi-surreal Philippine countryside.
  • There is a Ferry Boat, and Medusa who tells her real story.
A place for dancing


And a place for art
