My name is Vida (Life, in Español) Soraya (Star or Bright Light, in Persian) Verzosa (a Filipino family descended from the Knights of Calatrava in Spain). Join my adventures in spreading Life + Light! Please feel free to ask me your burning questions and I’ll try to help you out. All photographs are mine, unless otherwise stated.

Soraya is an open star cluster located in the constellation of Taurus. The cluster is dominated by hot blue and extremely luminous stars that have formed within the last 100 million years. It is the nearest star clusters to Earth and is the cluster most obvious to the naked eye at night. Also know as: Pleiades (Greek), Subaru (Japanese), Bazumq (Armenians), Ulker (Turkish), Tua Rua (Vietnamese) etc…
The early recorded VERZOSAs were of Castilian origins and were mostly Knights of the Military Order of the Calatrava, a confraternity of monks, who organized themselves (and underwent military training) to form a militia army and took up the cudgels to fight the Moors. xxx the VERZOSA bloodline is that of nobility and service, something we should all be proud of.
I thank God for parents who gave me such beautiful names and interesting genealogies. I thank God that my parents worked hard to give me the opportunity to apply for scholarships in wonderful schools. I thank God for the chance to take pictures of things I want to share with the world.
“Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor… Let no one ever come to you without leaving better or happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile; kindness in your warm greeting.” — Mother Teresa
All the best and may God’s Life + Light always be yours,
