I was busy luxuriating in the natural beauty of the panoramic Mount Isarog in front of our house at Sagrada Familia, Pili, Camarines Sur, when I happened to see this “green” skink (Scientific Name: Lamprolepis smaragdina) coming out from the hollow of our tamarind tree. He told me he wanted to play by letting me chase him so I gave in.
Sometimes, all it takes is to devote a little time to discover the beauty and joy out of simple things the Aura up there created like the skink that I had ignored for quite sometime now. I’m glad I did! I really had fun chasing the skink.
