Said to be, an expression of suppressed desire
Sigmund, was like a bird on a wire
An interpretation is soon to follow
Makes you worry, like the other fellow
You may be asleep, or wide awake
It could be a goal, or a game the mind makes
Though it may soon come true
The real meaning is up to you
Now, since you can never prevent it
You might as well remember, every bit
Then as you wake and say, it was only a dream
Pinch yourself until you scream
The dream you have is there to inspire
So live your life and walk the wire
To do, as your heart desire
May be the fondest, or the worst
Can be a blessing, or a curse
It can mold you, or fold you
And change your point of view
People, places, and events
Joy, pain, and fulfillments
Regardless of what it meant,
It was all worth the time you spent.
For good or bad it might have been
It will forever be cherished and seen
As life goes on, you will always remember
Childhood memories last forever
They say death is the greatest adventure
The end in which no one wants to venture
We live and know it’s not forever
Our lives, spent hoping to stay for longer
But if one of those we love goes and leave us for good
The sorrow it brings is never understood
Life is such that our time is never certain
We try our best to make the memories before we close the curtain
There is no other recourse but to move on
And remember the good times when it was fun
We don’t want anyone to feel the sadness
Just a reminder to enjoy the moments of wellness
Love who you love, and those who love you
So you won’t regret or lose time to do
May there be peace as they are put to rest
Let there be comfort to the ones that are left
You will forever be in our hearts
Always remembered even if it hurts
Reflection of the Seine
How real is the happiness you see? Is it real or momentary happiness? A lot of people you come by may show some degree of happiness. I am no expert and I do not have answers for you. However, I notice that everyone, regardless of circumstance, seems to experience happiness for a moment. Then, as fast as it comes, it is taken away when reality sets in. That happy person is now quick to anger and petty about the little things. At this time, you seem to be looking at a totally different individual. This is of course because of the real events they are experiencing in their lives. No matter how hard they try to suppress these feelings, it would always manifest and find a way to surface.

Like a magnet, I follow your every direction.
I may be taken to different locations, spun like a top or whatever motion.
I always go back to where you are.
I follow you just like the star.
You can move to random places, no one has ever been.
You will be found, for my true north I’ve seen.
I’m lured by you, my true north, my true north.
I can’t help myself, I slip when I fight it.
I may stray, and go the opposite way.
Then come around, like the sun roams the day.
I have no choice but to stay true
Till I get to you, my true north.
I’m so into you, my true north.

I had a conversation with a group of friends, about drinking by myself. Some of them think I’m crazy. Well, maybe I am.. I am my favorite companion. I believe that if you cannot be happy alone, you will never be happy. So every once in a while, I sit back, and have a beer or two by myself not really expecting anything, just sit and take whatever comes. If you allow yourself to take a break, you would notice more of your surroundings. No matter what it is, you can pick-out the details and appreciate it more. It could be nature, structure, or people. Who knows, you might not end up drinking alone after all. I drink for refreshment, and no other reason. The rest is just coincidence. Continue reading →
Been writing about so many other things.
I’ve almost forgotten how it was to sing.
My mind has been totally out of line.
It’s probably a phase, I’ll be just fine.
Now I’m back to writing more songs.
This I feel is where I belong.
It”s hard for me to find my rhythm.
Songs about love will be among them.
I try, and try to no avail.
This again is where I would fail.
I need your help for some inspiration.
Tell me, what it is that gives you motivation.
It may not be the best I fear
But it will always be yours, my love, my dear.
The things we did, the things we are doing, and the things we are about to do, believe it or not, are meant for our own happiness or the happiness of those we love. Dig deeper into the real purpose of what we do in our lives. If we continue to ask the question “Why?,” we will end up with,”because it makes us happy.” Now, if we think the only way to achieve this is to commit crimes or seek revenge, then we would have lost the very essence of happiness.

Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England
I think denial of all possibilities, is denial of our own beliefs. If we strongly have faith in what we believe in, we should accept that everything else is also possible. We are so focused on our personal beliefs and theories that all others seem to be wrong, then hate those who believe differently. The freedom to practice and pursue our beliefs, opens the idea that everything is possible. It is of course possible, that I am wrong.
A blinding state of being.
Creator of the worst mistakes like killing.
Belief of the wrong following.
Destroyer of a joyful living.
Is there no other recourse?
Is there no relief from another source?
If we keep on giving in.
And continue to commit this great sin.
No peace would come to us, and this world we’re living in.
Even as we fight for what we believe.
There are other ways that we can achieve.
So may we choose to stop the hate.
And together, change our fate.
Most of the time it is not available.
Somewhere in time you have made one that was viable.
Bad ones were made and they were horrible.
Too many, were inconceivable.
It is what has to be done, even if it is the wrong one.
It is what you have to live with, even if it is all gone.
Soon another will come.
To take it for granted is a mistake like none.
Still you do not have it.
But yet, have to make it.

I lived paycheck to paycheck for the last 30 years. I am aware of my situation so I started an automatic deduction of $150 from my bi-weekly earnings. Now, even if I spent everything, I have somehow set something aside for travel.
I have decided to travel to a new destination at least once a year while I can. The whole process of preparing for travel keeps me in vacation mode. I am now actively researching and anticipating my next destination while the budget grows.
