Labor Day. 'A fair day's wage for a fair day's
work.' It has been written in the Holy Scriptures. In this world of work,
we sell our time to get compensated. It is expected from laborers like
us that we give the same output based on the input we are given by our
masters. Being an entrepreneur, I am compensated based on my performance
and skills and how I manage the tasks I am about to tackle. One has to
be sensitive to the needs of others...this is a trait everyone must have.
Every input must equal every output.
I tried to paint and this is what I came up with. I missed my teacher.
I wasn't able to learn how to hold a brush and apply the strokes onto
the canvas. He left for Seattle and he'll be back here again in Novemer
unless I go to Seattle in the summer. He tells me that the summer in Seattle
is a wonderful sight.
When painting this piece, I relied on my intuition instead of using the
art principles. I was gonna draw a face but I was not able to do it. I
learned that one doesn't need to have eyes to see to work on a piece of
art. We have other senses to harness. This is when inspiration comes in.
With this innate talent as one have said, plus the presence of the inspiration,
the birth of a masterpiece is inevitable. Does the inspiration have a
face? Maybe I can draw its face...
By the way, this piece has been created on a digital canvas.
I was awakened
by your call. I want to thank you and am grateful for your thoughtfulness
and greeting me a "Happy Birthday."
I'm today's birthday
boy and I don't know what's brewing at work later.
died today. Manu and I`a were shocked of the loss and refused to eat.
They were the ones who saw her plight. I don't know how to comfort them
of the loss. I'll help them cope with it by bringing in new friends for
them tomorrow. Lianala was very playful and exhibiting a sense of leadership.
She served as a source
of my joy while l view her from the outside world of humanity into looking
her inside watery world. As a tribute to her I made this painting and
I entitled Lianala.

when you love someone so deeply
they become your life
it's easy to succumb to
overwhelming fears inside
blindly i imagined i could
keep you under glass
now i understand to hold you
i must open up my hands
and watch you rise
spread your wings and prepare to fly
for you have become a butterfly
fly abandonly into the sun
if you should return to me
we truly were meant to be
so spread your wings and fly
i have learned that beauty
has to flourish in the light
wild horses run unbridled
or their spirit dies
you have given me the courage
to be all that i can
and i truly feel your heart
will lead you back to me
when you're ready to land
i can't pretend these tears
aren't overflowing steadily
i can't prevent this hurt
from almost overtaking me
but i will stand and say "goodbye"
for you will not be mine

hard but I couldn't hear anything. I don't understand, but perhaps the
river's course took a detour. That's why I don't hear the running water
of the river.
My local webspace has been maxed out so I've decided to have this website

change of webhosting provider.
I have been doing a lot of work these days and still keeping the flame
alive whatever it takes. This flame serves as my guiding light to my path
where it would lead me. We were walking together in this path and somewhat
you were lost. I am looking for you as a result. I'll leave this flame
here and you will find me. While you are in this process, I am taking
a journey to find my way back to you. I will remain yours.

community celebrates its annual Barrio Fiesta. It's a depiction of the
barrio fiesta in the Philippines. There were lots of people especially
non-Filipinos to try out Filipino culture. I wish there's more to show
about the real Philippines of today. Since most of Hawaii's Filipinos
originated from the northern Philippines, it has been a common knowledge
that the language of the Filipinos is Iloko. I wish that the next generation
of organizers of the barrio fiesta will change the format because
it's not really Filipiniana. It's not a 100% Filipino flair. The Filipino
is a good adopter to change that's why you see him/her all over the globe.
It's rarity to see a real Filipino, in thoughts, in words, and in deeds.
But overall, they did a good job. I might join the Maui Filipino Community
Council to give input to the community leaders on reminiscing the Philippine
culture away from home.
