Mount Apo, for the longest time, has always been just a piece of trivia to me. An easy check mark in Civics class when asked the question from “One Country, One People”: What is the tallest mountain in the Philippines?
Mt. Hibok-Hibok in Camiguin, as seen from White Island, looks very much like a hat. Reminds me of The Little Prince.
I showed my masterpiece to the grown-ups, and asked them whether the drawing frightened them.
They answered me: “Why should any one be frightened by a hat?”
My drawing was not a picture of a hat. It was a picture of a boa constrictor digesting an elephant. Then, I drew the inside of the boa constrictor, so that the grown-ups could see it clearly. They always need to have things explained.
