99.8% Full Moon Tonight

Being in Vancouver and peeking out of the car with this huge, brilliant moon presenting itself like saying “I’m here, bold and beautiful. Come and stare.” Stare I did indeed!

One fact I had encountered this-normal-crazy-all-staff-and-boss-cranky day has something to do with this big bold moon. I even said it whilst consoling one of the femmes who just broke  down after having 2 femmes scream at her for no apparent reason. I said there must be a full moon with the females. I read that full moon influencing a pull on liquid (full moon equals high tide) affects females moods. I read before (forgive the missing reference for my statement) that full moon have an emotional effect to females and more than men because we have more liquid contents in our body than men.
It was a theory on the document I read before but more often than not moods this horrid I found is when the moon is full. Coincidence? I don’t think so. I believe in this magnetic pull and wishing it wont be that full tomorrow. So there you go. If you are cranky today for no reason ’tis the answer. Have a good night.

Book blog

Standard

I have been contemplating on writing a book for a very long time. Right when I was 14 when I started a quick feedback of my storytelling skills and had asked my classmates what they thought of the story I made. I didnt know I just started my first feasibilty study.
I read and researched and well didnt really have the main objective to my book yet. But I have a lot of stories to tell. On this day I almost died last year. The miracle of surviving with just stitches and some scars are my only proof of being under a catastrophe and survived. I will detail that in Chapter 10.
Today is my miracle day. I thank God immensely of giving me another life, to breathe through it with a smile and count every day as a blessed day.
As for my book, I will kee you posted 😉

Ups and Downs

Standard

Ups-and-Downs

Ahhhh, the consequential cliche whenever you feel like the world is on you. But alas, that is not the content of this blog. When I say Ups and Downs, I mean UPS and DOWNS.

Ups like Victoria Beckham’s rumored computerized closet that gives inventories of when the item was worn (check my reference down) which, well, cost around $500k (US eh! Canadians add 25% more on that, sheesh!).

There are and maybe days where you feel like, uhmmm, a simple walk in closet would do. You may not have the notion to have  your 360 degree view of yourself prior to getting out of your room (yes, the closet does that too). There are rich people, and there are rich people. And where they spend depends on their fancy.

Alright, how about the DOWNS? The downs, ah, Congo is one word to summarize it all. That is only an example. Up to now there are people dying of malnutrition. No water to drink, no work, no land, I could go on. There are people who eat once a day or less and not by choice. Its fate, kismet, there is no explanation, we can try and be rational but this is reality.

The Ups and Downs are part of life. How can you make the difference? When you are up give, not only money, but time, advise, service, whatever. Giving when you are up and others down could even the scale. As when you are down someone will extend to you to even out the scale. Its a simple quid pro quo “something for something”. Its the yin yang of life.

When you grow envious of the more fortunate, think of the less fortunate than yourself. Get out of the house and do something meaningful, help balance the scale, you will feel a lot better. I assure you.

The Poison in Beauty

Standard

Poison in beauty

 

Phantasmal Poison Frog Epipedobates tricolor; wow what a mouth full, but that is their official name. I find them quite beautiful. They are commonly called Dart frogs.

One other relative species is called Dendrobatids that include some of the most toxic animals on Earth. The two-inch-long (five-centimeter-long) golden poison dart frog has enough venom to kill 10 grown men. Indigenous Emberá people of Colombia have used its powerful venom for centuries to tip their blowgun darts when hunting, hence the genus’ common name.

You may be wondering why I am discussing these beauties, well for the justification of making a point (bloggers and writers have that goal, in my opinion).

The beauty of the Dart frogs color makes it attractive. The size hiding the malevolent nature of its existence. Its origin and purpose masked by the meek stature of the amphibian. Like humans, we are normally judged by how we appear, how we carry ourselves, how we speak and relate to others. At a distance the judging of one’s character is tricky. Get closer and some features can be evident. But its true nature? It can only be known by researching. Investigating and inventively unearthing relative facts to the purpose.

The correlation? Seek and observe then move with stealth, you wont know the venom’s effectivity until it sinks and paralyzes you or worse, kill you. Don’t be taken by sheer beauty or attractiveness. Use your bodies other senses, eyes are the initial surveyor don’t make it the decision maker. Enjoy your weekend.

Floating to Unity

Standard

.image

This is my shot and if you can ignore the exit sign at the back, it will make me fell a lot better.

Getting to the mood, have you felt the floating feeling? The liberation of being free, sans regard as the French says, to do without regards. Fleeting with flow where the wave of current takes you. No use to struggle, why bother? Its nice to go along where life carries you. But then to where, there will be time this scene agrees with you then again there will be a stage when it does not. When doesn’t it agree with you, to be floating and carefree? I want that!

And I do have the answer. The stage when you dont want to be free and floating is when the tide brings you further away from your group, your family, friends and the community. The place that makes you YOU! It’s the place where you are already expressing yourself and the community knows you and loves you irregardless. So you say there’s limitation to your freedom, then take it in stages. There’s nothing big that couldn’t be broken if you started little 😉

So go float, float into unity. Fun begins in numbers!

“Learn to Weep” – Pope Francis

Standard

image

I was chatting with my best friend and was solicited with advice,  with me feeling tired and melancholy, it hit home. The story goes, It was her birthday when she paid a visit to University of Sto. Thomas, her alma mater, to witness the visit of Pope Francis in the Philippines. She was moved by the whole experience, just by being there.

There was an encounter between Pope Francis and a child where the child asked why God let bad things happen to innocent children. Quoting his response from the heart came “Only when the heart is able to ask the question and weep can we understand something.”

Whenever something bad happens in our lives we seek advise, people who console us until we feel better or found justification to the mortifying feeling we are experiencing. There are tag replies to, say, a loss of a love one, e.g. ‘We are destined to be gone, its just time is the essence.’ For me, when I had lost my loved one, I cried not because they are gone but because I don’t know how to survive without them. I’ll be lost.

Learn how to weep, cry with your heart for after the tears all will be clear.

Time for the Heart

Standard

The color is red, its everywhere! People bustling going about their joyful tasks. Everyone feels important and have a sense of giving an audacious deed. Love is everywhere, guess what we are having?

Gong Xi Fa Cai or Gong Hey Fat Choy! Happy Chinese New Year! Got you there didn’t I? I will dedicate a blog for that in the days to come but as for now I would like to give the heart the spotlight.
I mean the heart as the embodiment of love, not as the muscular organ keeping us alive. Going back to my rose colored glasses, where’s dinner going to be? Planning for flowers or nervously waiting for them? Hoping the hints we sent his way gave clear signals. Nevertheless a piece of advise to the expectant she-half, be glad with the greeting then you will be jubilant if there are more. To the not-so-romantic he-half, come on! Hallmark made billions on this day alone, make them one card richer today! Ir flowers, or dinner? Are you the practical one? Well then get a mutual fund, put it in her name and jot down projected interest. There is effort in the plan. Speaking of plan why don’t you get a couple shirt? Affordable, no hassle, unique, what else can you ask for?

And I mean now, there might be time for you yet 🙂 Happy Hearts Day!
