a photo diary of my Fall season travel to Arizona and Nevada
She is patient, she is true
Although once in a while she may be crude.
She is gentle, she is kind
But once in a blue moon you may see her devil inside.
She always loves and seldom hate,
She is careful in words and in gait.
In all her ways she practice humility,
But if you hit her hard you’ll see her animosity
She is perfectly imperfect, and it’s not just a facade,
Because even though she’s broken she holds the purest heart.
Goodbye summer… Three weeks is just too short, nevertheless I feel truly blessed. I will definitely miss the poetic sunrise, cold wind, the never-ending rants of the talking myna bird, the other birds chirping, dogs barking because I’ve become a stranger, the snotty silver Arowana, the cats who always wants to join me at my breakfast, the free range chickens who makes my evening feel like dawn, the never lonely sirius at a starry night… And my nephews’ non-stop talking in minion-like language. Where most people are extremely condescending, there’s still a lot to love about the Philippines and yes it will always have a special place in my heart.
My friend once told me “Don’t let a bucket of darkness eclipse an ocean of sunshine”. I remember that fateful day he told me that, that was the day I felt so alone and needed a friend.
Year had passed and those big words still lingers on my mind. Every time I am at a catch-22 I remind myself of that quote. I must admit that part of how my brain is wired was influenced by my set of golden friends. (I wouldn’t hold this much patience if not for them.)
So whenever you have a problem that you are just too stressed to tell your family about, I suggest that you tell it to a friend. Tell it to a friend who would laugh at your silly thoughts and pointless rants. Tell it to a friend who would kill your drama with idiocy. After-all, what you have isn’t really a problem, but just a situation. Situation that doesn’t really exist and are just weaved by your emotional mind. Situation that will soon pass. Smile and B+
I remember a time when I was sporting a short hair with full bangs and I volunteered to go to an orphanage to teach kids how to read. There’s this cute little girl who came up to me and said “You’re so pretty!!!” And I was so glad to receive such complement ‘coz I know that kids don’t lie… Until she followed it with “You look like Dora!” then my whole confidence vanished into thin air. Must love kids!
