The off-season, vacation time, or close season is the time of year when there is no official competition. Although upper management continues to work, the athletes will take much vacation time off. Also, various events such as drafts, transfers and important off-season free agent signings occur. Generally, most athletes stay in shape during the off-season in preparation for the next season. Certain new rules in the league may be made during this time, and will become enforced during the next regular season.(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Season_(sports)

This archive photo was taken by the amazing Charles Buenconsejo. Its part of the series we did together when we were playing around with film photography. He captured me in a very meditative mood which is quite rare in my photos. I always look tense in my photos probably because they're all taken in a hurry.Here i was asked to pose in a very convenient knee bent position and Charles took time to see where the light was hitting my face. We werent in a hurry. We were just taking out time creating an awesome photo. I miss that feeling. Time indeed is a luxury nowadays. Its hard to have it. When you have its all too fleeting.
This photo also is somewhat of a reminder for me to have a healthier balance in my life. Despite that Im resting/recuperating at home, I couldnt help but reminisce of days where vacation was indeed a vacation. Much like last year around this month where i took off for Korea, I need my own 'close season' this year.I need it for my body to heal itself and rejuvenate my mind and spirit.
