I want to thank
the good Lord in guiding me through my life's journey. I couldn't believe
but it's true, God has a plan in each and everyone of us in His own timetable.
I went through peaks and valleys and I've learned the lessons of life.
Today is also my brother's birthday, it's a double celebration.

the direction of the wind and you will find her. She also seeks you. You'll
find each other, just believe.

memories. And those flowers have then withered and its petals have fallen
to the ground where the wind have picked it up. Looking forth, there are
moments when he wanted to look back and reminisce. Yesterday's gone, what
he is living now is today and looking forward of what tomorrow would bring.
What does his heart tell him? It is the very thought of the existence
of a presence he longs for. Where does this presence come from? Something
tells him, it's coming from the East. Would he follow the smoke signals
he sees beyond the horizon? Will it bring him there and find completion?

and say, "I am living life at its best when all I have is love. That's
what I live for."
"And let your best be for your friend. If he must know
the ebb of your tide, let him know its flood also. For what is your friend

eliminating doubt from your tone of voice. And don't describe your future
success as something you "hope" to achieve. Picture it as something
you absolutely will accomplish. You see, hope is not strong enough emotion

Fish and Bird
They bought a round for the sailor
And they heard his tale
Of a world that was so far away
And a song that we'd never heard
A song of a little bird
That fell in love with a whale
He said: you cannot live in the ocean
And she said to him:
You never can live in the sky
But the ocean is filled with tears
And the sea turns into a mirror
And there's a whale in the moon when it's clear
And a bird on the tide
Please don't cry
Let me dry
So tell me that you will wait for me
Hold me in your arms
I promise we never will part
I'll never sail back to the time
But I'll always pretend you're mine
Though I know that we both must part
You can live in my heart

I had lunch with Tito Carlos at his daughter's furniture outlet. He's
going back home to Manila tomorrow so I took a break from my daily routine.
When I arrived, he condoled me with the loss of my father last year. He
heard it from her daughter, Tita Cheryl. We spent the day talking about
life in general and watching the classic Bruce Lee movie, Return of the
Dragon on my notebook computer. He's looking forward to meeting me back
in Manila next year. I've been busy lately that's why I didn't have a
chance to see him often. Bon voyage Tito!
