Everything she ever wanted in her life was somehow literally or figuratively captured in this little strip of animation. The continum of love and family, the reasonance of happy times that she always lingered inside inanimate objects, the traditions of shared affectionate life that she so hoped to cremate in her own world, all of it was there.
-Jim Beaver, Life's That Way

I like it when contentment fills my heart. I really feel that nothing more is needed in my life right now. Everything I could ask for seems to be here and in place.

And here’s a poem I randomly thought of while cozying up in my bed on this chilly morning:

 Oh it is good to imagine dancing in the rain,
And then bask under the sun when it shines again.
To ride and to run beneath the beautiful sky,
Then lay down and dream to the heart’s desire.

Oh it is good to rest our feet at a little café,
With drinks at the other end of the table.
Browse through the pages of magazines,
And then, talk about nothing at all.

Oh it is good to laugh like a child,
To savor life’s simple pleasures,
To marvel at God’s creation,
And to let happiness seep through my very soul.

Oh it is good to idle at home.
Listen to music soothing to the ears.
Enjoy the sereneness of rustic peace,
And then, be contented with all that I have.

Anyway, I chanced upon an AIDS Awareness blog and followed it quite some time ago. One of the entries was titled: “What is the soundtrack of your life?” 

The proposition was “If you could make a soundtrack of your life, what ten songs would you pick?”

The trick to this is to not just pick your 10 favourite songs. Some of them can be favourites, but some of them could just be songs that remind you certain times in your life – The Defining Moments. 

I always love listening to songs. There’s so many zillions number of songs in this world…I guess it’s inevitably to come across songs that sort of lend a voice to the silence in the heart or in the head. For the lack of words, songs can be ways of expressing those thoughts out, without having to speak.

 Wanted to explain why I choose these 10 songs, but i guess i shall just let the lyrics and music explain itself. 
So, here's my 10 songs (randomly selected from my playlist):

1. Photograph – Nickelback
2. Life Is Beautiful - LMNT
3. The Climb - Miley Cyrus
4. Fix You - Coldplay
5. Run - Addison Road
6. The Luckiest -Ben Folds Five
7. Breathe (2am) - Anna Nalick
8. I believe - Yolanda Adams
9. Ordinary Miracle - Sarah McLachlan
10. Forrest Gump – Alan Silvestri

when everything is gracefully falling away.

music: The Script - The Man Who Cant Be Moved

there's this deep, settling sense of comfort that rests in my heart...
when i saw you yesterday, with your familiar laughter.

just a brief encounter...
yet, it was exactly what i asked for,
nothing more.

somehow, i am glad that my morning prayer has being answered.

I have just watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button yesterday, with much anticipation.

I especially love this part whereby the scriptwriter goes down to the intricate details just to tell us of life.


* * *

Sometimes we are on a collision course and we just don’t know it...
Whether it’s by accident or by design, there’s not a thing we
can do about it...


A woman in Paris was on her way to go shopping...
But she had forgotten her coat...
and went back to get it...
And when she had gotten her coat the phone had rung...
and so she had stopped to answer it...
and talked for a couple of minutes...

And while the woman was on the phone;
Daisy was rehearsing for that evening’s performance at the
Paris Opera House...

And while she was rehearsing...
the woman, off the phone now...
had gone outside...
to get a taxi....
she moves to get it...
but somebody gets there first...
and she waits for the next cab...

And all the while Daisy was rehearsing...

And the cab driver who had dropped off the earlier fare, and had stopped to get the cup of coffee...
had picked up the lady, who was going shopping...
who had missed getting the earlier cab...

The taxi had to stop for a man crossing the street who had left for work five minutes later than he normally did...
because he forgot to set his alarm...

...While the man, late for work, was crossing the street...
making the cab wait...
Daisy, finished
rehearsing, was taking a shower.

...While Daisy was showering;
the taxi was waiting outside a Boutique for the woman to pick up a package...
which hadn’t been wrapped yet because the girl who
was supposed to wrap it...
had broken up with her boyfriend the night before and forgot to...

When the package was done being wrapped...
The woman, who was back in the cab...
the taxi was blocked by a delivery truck...

All the while Daisy was getting dressed... 

The Delivery truck pulled off and the taxi was able to go...

While Daisy, the first to be dressed, waited for one of her friends who had broken a shoelace...

While the taxi was stopped, waiting for a traffic light...
Daisy and her friend came out of the theater...

Daisy and her friend,
carrying their dance bags,
down the steps out of the theater,
coming along the
street to the corner...
They start to cross the street...
Daisy, showing her friend a tight pirouette... 

And if only one thing had happened differently
...if only the shoelace hadn’t broken...
...Or the delivery truck had moved moments earlier...
...Or the package had been wrapped and ready...
because the girl hadn’t broken up with her boyfriend...
...Or the man had set his alarm and got up five minutes earlier..
...Or the taxi driver hadn’t stopped for a cup of coffee.
...Or the woman had remembered her coat...
...And had gotten into an earlier cab...

 Daisy and her friend would have crossed the street...
...and the taxi would have driven by them...


But life being what it is...
a series of intersecting lives and incidents...
Out of anyone’s control...
the taxi did not go by...
and the driver momentarily was distracted by the cigarette ash from his shirt...

And he didn’t see Daisy crossing the street...

...and that taxi hit Daisy...


And her leg was crushed...

 * * *

A misery that could be averted in many ways
...but nobody would have known about it.
Sometimes we are fooled to believe that we're in control, when we are really not.
None of us knows what the future holds.
We all don't know what's coming for us.

A wrong turn,
an eventual decision,
can change one's life forever.

The movie did, too, intrigued my mind in many other ways.

It brought light to the fact that humans' minds are so stiffened by social definitions of ugliness...
...to truly see what beauty is.

It showed me just how incredible life works itself;
as we walk through life,
we gain some, we lose some,
we suffer and we rejoice.
people come, people leave.

It made me realize that sometimes, all it takes to be happy is to marvel at the simplest and littlest things in life.
...to just put away all the inconsequences of life.

And sometimes along the way, we question God's creation
we become puzzled.. and angry even.
but perhaps...
if we listen hard enough
...God will have an answer.

And like what was said..
when it comes to the very end, we all have to let go

* * *
What I saw was a striking resemblance of what'd passed.

The only difference was the lack of courage...
but I know that, being me, I wouldn't have done it differently.

i love the sun.

love the way its rays thread through thick clouds.

i love the sun.
particularly the sun.

"...and somehow, somehow, somehow communicate some of the overwhelming, undying, overpowering, unconditional, all-encompassing, heart-enriching, mind-expanding, ongoing, never-ending love I have for you."
