Lucy Torres-Gomez has just ended her "self-imposed time away" from Instagram for five months.

She marked her return with a thought piece on how people make memories these days.

The Leyte 4th district representative wrote, "I needed some time away. I just felt there was so much noise, and I wanted to take a step back.

"Maybe I was in that space where I pined for faded photographs of times past—where pictures happened because a moment was captured and not the other way around."

She reminisced about "a time photographs were snapped in a second, were candid, blurry even, and many times beautifully imperfect.

"But each was precious because each meant someone in the same room simply captured a random moment without taking anything away from it."

Lucy then remarked that she "will never be that person who can post in real time..."

The wife of Richard Gomez continued, "You know how you don’t want to blink because you don’t want to miss a thing? That is how I feel about life and photographs.

"I don’t want to be so busy taking pictures that I miss out on living and feeling all that is beautiful and real about life...

"I have much to share—yes, lots of photos but lots of stories, too.

"So while I am thankful for that self-imposed time away from this page, I do feel a tug to come back gently, mindfully...and yet without design."
