My dad usually starts his morning exercise around 6:30 am. He used to walk 3 kilometers a day but since his back condition deteriorated this past year, he can only manage to finish half his regular route. At 78, he refuses to undergo surgery and opts for a combination of physical therapy and pain medication instead.
"Sana, may sampung taon pa ako, Anak." He remarked. (I hope I can live ten more years, Child.)
He has not traveled overseas in years so my siblings and I take turns visiting Manila to spend time with him.
I brought a camera with me this particular day so I could remember his vigor.
