Coconut in Palawan by carmen_jean25

Photo of the Day: Coconut in Paradise

We don’t know why, but we find a simple sight — like a coconut aimlessly floating in the sea– absolutely interesting. And beautiful. Perhaps it’s about the thought of how amazing it is for coconuts to float across oceans and grow in a small island in the middle of nowhere. Perhaps it’s the parallelism of how, in the greater scheme of things, our lives reflect the randomness of the coconut’s fate (except for the fact that coconuts don’t make decisions). Perhaps it’s because this particular coconut, here immortalized in a photo snapped by CJ (carmen_jean25, a lady who loves coffee and art, and hopes to write and illustrate books someday), is floating near an island that was formally recognized as the best in the world earlier this year: Palawan. Or perhaps it’s all about the strong sense of wonder that is common among fellow wanderers, the same outlook that enables wanderers to find happiness in the journey itself and not only the destination. We can’t really put a finger on it, as we said. Here, look at this photo (click photo to enlarge) and tell us what comes through YOUR mind:
