The art of loafing

I crave for everyday and ordinary scenes like this...because they have a lot of story to tell. I love telling stories. I am a frustrated novelist.

Entangled

All married couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love. Good battle is objective and honest - never vicious or cruel. Good battle is healthy and constructive, and brings to a marriage the principle of equal partnership.

Blessed Sunday

And so faith is closing your eyes and following the breath of your soul down to the bottom of life, where existence and nonexistence have merged into irrelevance. All that matters is the little part you play in the vast drama.

~ Real Live Preacher


....
A Blessed and Peaceful Sunday to all!

Lean on me

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you don't let show

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just call me

So just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
Till I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Lean on me...

(Bill Withers)

BEHIND THE SCENE. (a la I Travel East)...It has been more than 20 years since I visited the railroad near our home in the province. The railroad was one our playgrounds where we waited for trains to pass by and had crown caps pressed by the metal wheels. On mornings, we always looked forward to the sunrise and run to this spot. We stared at the rising sun until our eyes ached and teary and marveled at the visions of light circles after.

So last December 27, I brought my son and my nephew for a photowalk to see what has happened to our "playground". The tracks were gone. The ricefields on both sides were now replaced by houses and shanties and are now called "home along the riles."

The only remembrance that was left was the metal bridge ahead, and the sun that shone on our faces...and the memories of childhood that will never be gone.

FOLLOW THE LIGHT

Matthew 2: 1-12

Wise Men from the East

1 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, ?Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.?
3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.
5 So they said to him, ?In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:
6 ? But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
Are not the least among the rulers of Judah;
For out of you shall come a Ruler
Who will shepherd My people Israel.??[a]

7 Then Herod, when he had secretly called the wise men, determined from them what time the star appeared. 8 And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, ?Go and search carefully for the young Child, and when you have found Him, bring back word to me, that I may come and worship Him also.?
9 When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. 11 And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
12 Then, being divinely warned in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed for their own country another way.

San ka papunta, bata? [Where to, my child?]

All human situations have their inconveniences. We feel those of the present but neither see nor feel those of the future; and hence we often make troublesome changes without amendment, and frequently for the worse.
~ Benjamin Franklin

Still carrying the torch for my mono-logues series. This is the next to the last post then I would be filling this up this stream with color again.

Rahyll's corner

Rahyll was one of my interns in the House of Representatives. I usually see her reading in this corner. She wrote a policy paper on a very controversial issue: Population Management in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. She had the best policy paper among the 19 who made it in my Batch 7 of interns.

The race marshall

I have three treasures. Guard and keep them:
The first is deep love,
The second is frugality,
And the third is not to dare to be ahead of the world.
Because of deep love, one is courageous.
Because of frugality, one is generous.
Because of not daring to be ahead of the world, one becomes the leader of the world.

~ Lao Tzu

Isang sulyap sa pananampalataya [A glance at faith]

And so faith is closing your eyes and following the breath of your soul down to the bottom of life, where existence and nonexistence have merged into irrelevance. All that matters is the little part you play in the vast drama.

I thank God for the gift of sight
I thank God for seeing Him
I thank God for the beauty
even in seemingly mundane things that surround us
I thank God when I doubt
for in the end I realize He blesses me
and i realize you are a blessing to me, too!
I thank God for the gift of virtual friendship and the internet
for he makes people like us connect
making us one in spirit!

God Bless and have a great weekend to you all!

WITHERED

There is no royal road to anything. One thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly, endures.

Sense

How hard it is, sometimes, to trust the evidence of one's senses! How reluctantly the mind consents to reality.

On a clear day

Before you begin a thing, remind yourself that difficulties and delays quite impossible to foresee are ahead. If you could see them clearly, naturally you could do a great deal to get rid of them but you can't. You can only see one thing clearly and that is your goal. Form a mental vision of that and cling to it through thick and thin.
~ Kathleen Norris

Kalayaan! [Freedom]

My Interns played with me and agreed to be my "subjects." Actually it was their idea if I could capture their clenched fists. I liked the idea, so this is it!

Searching

Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.
~ Og Mandino

Almost threw this one away, then I found a good way of framing this to enclose that light, and that black [shadowed] wall on the left.

Kanlungan [refuge]

There is in us a lyric germ or nucleus which deserves respect; it bids a man to ponder or create; and in this dim corner of himself he can take refuge and find consolations which the society of his fellow creatures does not provide.

Palaruan-paaralan [School-playground]

Poor children like them have the streets as their playground and school. Needless to say, they are always on the forefront to beat the odds. PGMA's battlecry to reduce poverty is always an elusive dream. Not unless we take them and their families out of the streets, give them opportunities to grow and prosper, can we say we have won the battle against poverty.

...
With your indulgence, I am posting some of the poignant shots I took on our photowalk last September 13. I cannot help but also advocate for their plight. It is my way of telling the whole world that there are still destitute circumstances like this.

Prayers and Sweepstakes

When I was a small child, I always wondered why sweepstakes ticket vendors do not become rich. When I saw this old woman in Sto Domingo church in Quezon city, who seem to have made this church door her permanent selling place, the same old nagging questions came back again.

Now I understand their plight better...I hope.>

Aninag

I was thinking about how disjointedly time seemed to flow, passing in a blur at times, with single images standing out more clearly than others. And then, at other times, every second was significant, etched in my mind.

Found during the Indios mamam sessions. This guy lingered for a while. He knew I was aiming at him, but I had to wait for the area to be clear of passers by. Shot in mono and sepia filter.
