The Promise of the Sun

Who have never
felt deserted?

Who have never experienced
being left alone;
at worst felt abandoned?

Who have never gone through
the feeling of being old, rotten,
sad and rough?

You are not the first one, my friend!..
We all do...
And it will constantly come and go.

Look out the window,
It is bright and sunny!.

Go out and see
the promise of the sun.

in general view of life...
          act ten years older
          than your real age!

in fun and enjoyment...
          not bad to act ten years
          younger than your
          real age!
          take precautions! :-)

in reality/present...
          act your age!...

make sense?

Mag 143

To live, laugh and love
is just a part of my life.

On my own
the very essence of my life is
to see the beauty of the world,
explore its vastness,
and experience the different cultures
with my little time,
to the best of what my resources can afford.

It is only through seeing 
and experiencing that we will be
truly grateful of what we have,
never greedy
and be generous.

Then embrace and spread the good
and hopefully, correct the mistakes.
Verdun, 1917 by Felix Vallotton

Show You Care For Good Karma!

i was so happy to go to the bank yesterday to deposit my paycheque, as my boss decided to give us a little raise after another year. Happy thought, happy mood while walking to the bank that I used to go. The very handsome staff that became my friend was there and the very pleasant, happy looking lady was there to assist me. We had a little chat as they know that I am soon leaving for my 5 weeks holidays to the Philippines. 29 days to be exact. Yay!

on my way back, I decided to grab a doughnut from a coffee shop, as i am a little hungry and thinking that i might already be starving before dinner. and so i went in and fall in line.

before me is an old man, maybe between 70-80, with difficulty in walking most probably because of a stroke. there are two cashiers. so the further of the two cashiers called for him a minute before the near one called for me. his orders was handed out to him even before i can finish ordering mine.

hardly walking with his cane on his right hand and a cup of coffee and a plate of doughnut, he tried to go to his table. passing through a line of about 8 people, ages 40-60, men and women, all able bodied. nobody cared to help him. don't get me wrong here, i am not saying this because i need praises; i waited if somebody will, but nobody really cared at all. so a step or two away from me, i told the cashier, give me a sec, with no words, i approach the old man and offered help. he was delighted. got the cup of coffee and the plate and brought it to his table. went back to the cashier and finish my order.

after doing so, i went to the side, and look at the people in line. blank faces, arching eyebrows. (forgive me for this), in my mind i say! WTF! are you people thinking? are you blind?

WHEN ARE WE GONNA SHOW CONCERN? or maybe, when we are already in that old man's situation, we will complain that noone cares...
