Love is a four letter word

I picture something is beautiful It's full of life and it is all blue I see the sunset on the beach Yeah, it makes me feel calm And when I'm calm I feel good When I feel good I sing If this life is one act Why do we lay all these traps We put them right in our path When we just wanna be free I will not waste my days Making up all kinds of ways To worry about all the things That will not happen to me So I just let go of what I know I don't know And I know I only do this by Living in the moment Living my life Easy and breezy With peace in my mind I got peace in my heart Got peace in my soul Wherever I'm going, I'm already home I'm living in the moment I'm letting myself off the hook for things I've done I let my past go past And now I'm having more fun I'm letting go of the thoughts That do not make me strong And I believe this way can be the same for everyone And if I fall asleep I know you'll be the one who'll always remind me
Jason Mraz
Maybe I annoy you with my choices Well, you annoy me sometimes too with your voice But that ain't enough for me To move out and move on I'm just gonna love you like the woman I love Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use the tools and gifts We got yeah we got a lot at stake And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn We had to learn, how to bend without the world caving in I had to learn what I got, and what I'm not And who I am You could give it all away, give it all and be unstoppable All away, everything is really possible, all away You never really own it anyway, it'll all fall in place if you just let go When there is love, or when the heart feels heavy we can lighten it up, if you've had enough, well you can empty your glass and we can fill it back up Just know, that wherever you go, you can always come home I would fix you up inside, I would build you a town if the world fell down I feel like starting something I feel like calling off the day to be with you People ask, I say I'm doing fine I leave it in your hands now to come through Whichever way you go I'll be easy to find, I don't ask for much, just be honest with me The world as I see it is a remarkable place a beautiful house in a forest, of stars in outer space I hope you notice that I'm still in love with you I'm coming over tonight just to say goodnight I hope you notice I was never over you

My risk a beauty

Remember sugar for dinner was sweet
The sweetest a reminder for you to eat
How you sang nobody said it was easy
When it is meant to be read it is funny

Have seen you but never have met you
Absence noticed presence sought true
Fell for you for the most random kind act
The kindest for a while and that is the fact

Good mornings and nights were all we did
From Cuba is hard to keep the feelings hid
You made a race even to be the first to say
I still rue we missed Ralph to this very day

Hands and hair so soft to hold and smell
Beauty in all green I remember so well
Your graceful hair cut made me the best
A miss you too from you I am so blessed

Notice from your red profile anticipated
Where you are I am always appreciated
But from exactly that things got so crazy
Message you have read was not from me

How words so meaningful became a joke
Sad to witness a fragile start easily broke
The truest of feelings made to seem a lie
The harshest injustice to a man such as I

You Are

From my mother’s womb you have known me
Knitted every strain of cells in my body
Gave me the heart for the man I am to be
You are there from the start for me to see

The woman you have blessed me to call mother
She has in her heart for us to know thee
The only one important for us to come together
Every early morning circled-around to praise thee

So from my youth I have heard thee
All the wondrous things you have done
In the scriptures as it is written down
Also the life stories I hear of the family

Growing up and maturing has never been easy
A lot of things I wish I could have done differently
So sorry for all the choices I made unwisely
But I’m grateful to see and feel you in everything
Never ever letting me go, your faithfulness unchanging

No doubt it is you and always you
Who has been there for me for sure
Now as a man wanting to know more
Guide me always to come to you
That I may be with you forever more
For truly from forever to forever, You Are

Ka Mate Haka

In anticipation for the 2011 Rugby World Cup Final match this coming Sunday, France against New Zealand, I'm tempted to put up the Ka Mate here in the blog. 

If you've ever seen a Haka performed by the All Blacks -the New Zealand rugby team, you'd probably think it's kinda barbaric somehow with all those gestures with the hands and feet, tongue sticking out, eyes piercing as if trying to eat out the hearts of their opposite number. You'd instinctively think that they're going to war, and that's also what I thought. Well in a way, yes.


How to start is in a way problematic
Yes relationship of two is enigmatic
Being different is the characteristic
of individuals being made so specific

Personal experiences historic
Stories of life-lived so dramatic
With past relationships ironic
Makes a thousand-piece mosaic
Scattered all messy and chaotic
Until altogether being artistic
Finding each other so aesthetic
A blessing worthy being angelic
Inspiring, no use in being egoistic

Why sometimes I could be idiotic
Green sandals wrapped in plastic
Only to be forgotten in metallic
Sent you photos to be apologetic
You are as forgiving so seraphic

Climb up to see crater so scenic
On horses could be more majestic
Refreshed senses so naturalistic
Whoever made that is a puristic

Woke up to realize I am allergic
If not alarmed, already systemic
Didn't wake you to get pharmaceutic
I'd rather you asleep so silent a music

Left a note could now be a relic
Would you also keep it so iconic?
During breakfast we seem identic
Casually att…

iPhone won't restore!

This beginning of August 2011 will go down in history as the time when my iPhone 3GS has gone dead on me and refused to restore. I've been trying to resolve it for the past hour but have given up for the day. I'll be back tomorrow, with good news. I hope.
I'm back with a newly restored iPhone 3GS. Here's what happened:
I was trying to upgrade to iOS 4.3.5 when the iPhone just went dead and iTunes ended up suggesting to restore. Why exactly it went off like that I don't know and it still remains a mystery to me. At the time -like most of the time when troubles come your way, it matters little why and how it had happened, all that is important is how to resolve the problem, to get my iPhone up and running again. So I went on with the restoration process in iTunes.
It appeared that all was going well as it should when suddenly during the restoration, the process halted. I tried to restore again but having the same result: it stopped during the process. I searched …

She doesn't deserve that! No one does!

The day is just about to show its dim light of morn as I walk the streets to the bus stop. It was an out of the ordinary start to my day this week, just to get myself present on the futsal field to get sweaty. I know I desperately need the exercise considering the shape of my tummy lately. It seems all that walking up the stairs in office doesn't matter that much in that particular part. But never mind that.
It was early than my usual timing that brought me to notice that the path near the bus stop was in fact used by homeless people to sleep through the night. The comfiest spot of the perimeter I guess, with so many leafs of trees providing shade and privacy. A teenage boy, a woman with her baby by her side, and a man whom I assume was the husband made up the group.
I found myself passing them by, catching them in their awakening to a new day, to a new trespasser from their point of view. The man even fixed his eyes on me as if considering in his head to call the authorities to …

How wide the divide

My mother-in-law is ninety-five years old. She has lived through several wars and numerous other cataclysmic events in her life. Nothing has her more perplexed, shocked, and almost emotionally stunned as the culture wars that have been waged and have changed our world. I see her sitting in church when I am visiting her, obviously wondering why all of her past memories have been lost in the present format of worship. She is not at home either in the world or in her church and eagerly awaits the day when she can be in the City of God, her eternal home. What has changed? How did we get here? As Nietzsche would say, “Is there any up or down left? Who gave us a sponge to wipe away the horizon? Will lanterns have to be lit in the morning hours? What sacred games will we need to invent?” Yes, a century ago these times were imagined and they are now here. While the secular world has invented its secular games, many churches have invented their own “sacred” games. 
The most daunting question f…
