Prompt A Day | An Anagram & A Most Challenging Climb

in Shady Writing8 months ago

Prompt A Day challenge by @shadowspub is now on its 19th day! Wow, time sure flies! Somehow, blogging on a daily basis has made me realize the importance of time, so as much as I could help it, I avoid wasting precious time.

Today, I wanted to try the Journal / Blogging Prompt: Make an anagram of your name.

However, when I thought about it, I figured I haven't much to say about it. Nonetheless, I will share it here, as I did check on google an anagram for my online alias, raincrystal.


I searched online and found MULTIPLE WORD ANAGRAM SOLVER. I might as well make use of it and save me some precious time. LOL! ^_^

Filling in the form on the website resulted to 32 2-word combinations. Most of these didn't make sense to me. However, there was one combination that stood out. I laughed out loud when I saw it. Thought I'd share it here.

R A N T - S C A R I L Y

Boy, I thought that was funny. My daughter laughed too when she saw it, but she said that I do tend to rant scarily when I'm pissed off. Oh well......

Just to make this post more interesting, I decided to add the word prompt: going up?

All photos featured from hereon are from my personal collection. They were taken during our trip to Caramoan, Camarines Sur back in 2017.

Let me share my most interesting climb to date.

The place: Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, Mother of Peace Grotto in Caramoan

The challenge: climb 524 steps to reach the 26-foot image of the Blessed Virgin Mary


Going up those flight of stairs? Sure! Easy peasy, I thought. Our guide told us we have an hour to visit the shrine and come back down. I think only five of us took the challenge. The others decided to stay put in the van.


Yup, that's me up there. My daughter decided to let go up first so she could take this photo. Why not huh? I might as well document this challenging feat.


Are we there yet? I think this was just half way through. Oh boy, I was running out of breath and had to take longer breaks in between climb. I decided to do some twenty or so, then stop a bit, before resuming. Slowly, little by little, I somehow knew I would get there too.


As we were reaching higher grounds, the view is getting more magnificent. I decided to take the challenge, as I was not going by Caramoan often. This may be my only visit to the place.


After a few more flight of stairs, I just focused on going up and took less photos. I thought I'd take more when I got to the top. We finally reached this small church by the grotto.


There, we could spot the 26-foot image now. Just a few more steps. Wow! I vividly recall to this day the feeling I got when I reached this spot!


We simply had to take this selfie (wefie in this case) just to have a souvenir of the challenging climb.


Presenting the view of the Caramoan Islands. The view at the top was truly breathtaking (pun intended). I was literally out of breath as I admired the magnificent view that made me feel so small, and my troubles even smaller.


There is a platform where you could climb to see the grotto closer.

And there's the story that once again proves that

If there's a will, there's a way.

I would actually add one more word to that quote: If there's a will, there's always a way.

Have a great week ahead!

@iamraincrystal, Sometimes we feel that our Names are meaningless but in my opinion we can find deep meaning in it because it travelled with us from years and will travel ever in this life cycle. Stay blessed.
