I received this message in several different ways, different days, these past few weeks. “You only fail when you don’t see things to the end.”
And yet another passerby
And there you wentAs quietly as you cameAs sudden as the surpriseOf that momentuous first “Hi” As the silence sets inMy heart and mind againIt felt safe for awhileBut only an escape
Relationships are hard. (Part III)
RELATIONSHIP WITH YOURSELF “Embrace your inner child.” I often wondered why I was the type of person who over-shared. I wondered why other kids found it easy to make friends, while I shy away. I wondered why I would come off as obnoxious when all I felt was insecurity. Someone thought I either talked in…
Number 1 Song When I Was Born
Keep On Loving You – REO Speedwagon I was born in the 80s, on the generational cusp between the 80s and the 90s. I could not write yesterday, and I wanted to add music as part of the things I would like to talk about. My son, his friend and I took a short drive,…

Relationships are hard. (Part I)
Last Sunday, my firstborn kept sighing and looked down around lunchtime. He‘s turning 19 years old this month. I tried not to say anything until I couldn’t help but notice how he seemed to have lost his appetite. When I asked, he replied, “Relationships are hard.” It made me pause while trying to decide what…
I have always been fond of writing. As a teenager in the 90s, I used writing to express things I could not say or verbalize face-to-face. Not like a diary, but more like random pieces of paper. And yes, restaurant napkins are included. At 14, my writing evolved into letter-writing to friends. They became the…
Fifteen this 2018
It has been 15 years, 23 years counting the rest of the years I’ve known you. There’s a story to be told, for ears of the ones who are with me right now. And this is going to develop bit by bit, for the memories I need to come together for them. They are growing…
One of those things.
Took R1 on a date today. It was actually an errand that I impulsively scheduled, and just dragged him along since he has nothing to do. I love our drives because he has so many stories to tell (and to be honest I have trouble catching all of them, but I do try). It’s good…
Dingalan, Aurora – March 18, 2018
I took a bit of a risk asking R3 to join me on a trip. Like I mentioned earlier, I think that it was a “shock trip” for them because of the activities that we did that day. 🙂 I’ve been to Dingalan once before in 2004 with their Dad for our first year anniversary,…
We thrive on loyalty.
Earlier today, I was working on layouts of collateral for one of my clients and I was specifically working on Reward points. I usually work by creating a theme for a specific project for me to be able to work around on and work my way through using that and anything related, as well as…
