Veronika Decides to Die - "To desire death is to desire life

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

In two crucial phases of my life, I may be egotistic but I feel that the Universe send me two books by Paulo Coelho to guide and to comfort me. "The Alchemist" taught me to follow my heart and to take risks in the face of uncertainty and now, amidst feelings of bleakness, I had "Veronika Decides to Die".


In the first few chapters, I saw myself in Veronika. In fact, there are a lot of Veronikas out there living in complete apathy and hopelessness. This may be the latest maladies of our generation. I remembered a time when I was younger when I thought that I wanted to die. Then, as I was walking along East Avenue, I was hit by a motorcycle. Unscatched, (thank heavens that I only have few swellings and bruises) I thought to myself as I limped back home, "God has a silly sense of humor and I just laughed even if my whole body ached and I was literally seeing stars just like Bugs Bunny."

This story is just like that. "To affirm life, we must be conscious of Death." Poignantly true....

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... AMEN!

Hello, it's me!

It's been awhile since I have shared something on this space about my thoughts and my life. Well, where do I start? Maybe just like an old good friend, I will try to give you some highlights on the past years when I was not blogging.

The biggest thing that happened to me so far was I got my Australian citizenship. I know right? I know that it may not be a big deal to others but for me, this is something that I have tried to work on for the past 5 years.  My kababayans might say that I am ungrateful, but we cannot discount the fact that with a blue passport from a country like Australia, I can travel to many countries - visa free without immigration officers trying to catch my eye and check if I am planning to do something illegal on their country.

No offense, but every time I stand on the immigration line going into another country, my heart always work double/triple time because I am too anxious to be deported back to my country even if I know that I have the proper visa.
