Love Infinitum...

Image hosted by

We watched the Spanish film "La Buena Estrella (Lucky Star)" in Greenbelt 1 as part of the ongoing Spanish Film Festival. Film Festivals never cease to offer something new. Maybe, because our brains were already fried-dry by the mechanized movies churned by Hollywood and foreign film festivals/art films are the coolers to rejuvenate our dying brain cells and hardened hearts.

This movie is very similar in theme to the movie we've seen in a previous European film festival (sorry, brain cells in zzzzz mode, can't remember the title of the french movie)... "Can you really love two people at the same time?"

I've read somewhere that love is like "infinity". We cannot compare two infinities. There is no "less" infinite and "more" infinite. Infinity has no ending, and no beginning. It's not measurable but it's just is. But we all know what infinity is, we understand the concept but we never bother to measure it.

Love is also the same as infinity. "All we need is love!" This I firmly believe. You can really love two people at the same time, but just like infinity, you cannot say that you love one more than the other. The other may offer you stability, companionship while the other can inject zest in your life. You love both of them but there are times that in your journey you need one more than the other and vis-a-vis.

Problem exists because of the problem in language. Mr. Webster offers one word for all these feelings: lust, companionship, friendship, admiration, infatuation, agape, etc.... "LOVE".

This is one of the reasons why I still believe in marriage. It may be a tradition but traditions to humans are what instincts are to animals. They're essential. We direly need them because for instance in marriage, we offer our COMMITMENT to only one person to keep a relationship going even if your heart belongs to someone else.

We fall in and out of love. It's a surety that we will love one person now and then love another... but in marriage we are bonded by commitment. It's what keep families and societies glued together. I think romantic love is overrated (but of course this may be my jadedness and cynicism talking).

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.
