The next adventure...

The familiar stirring in my spirit.... looking for the next adventure. Where to go? What to do? When I feel restless, it's the universe's way of saying that I should do another life altering event. I am still not sure what it is but I just have to keep my heart, mind and soul open to all possibilities. The next ten years of my life will be the most turbulent and event-driven. So, here I go again, strap on my seatbelt and go for the ride... wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii... :)

Studies show...

I am doing a lot of reading lately about parenthood and raising toddlers. It only dawned unto my psyche lately that I will have "two" new important people in my life (not just one but two; I have to repeat this over and over again..hahaha). Packaged deal itoh :)

Of course, it freaked me out at first but when we go out and she nags me and kiddo because it took us a long time to get back from Timezone, I felt something that I haven't felt for a very long time... I am now part of a Complete Family (Centrum itoh :)).

The day I lost my eyebrows...

Feb 14, 2008 - Memorable day indeed. Had a fight, lost my two eyebrows... literally... I am now eyebrowless, if there is such a word...

Early Morning Chuva...

“We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.”
-– Dead Poets Society

I Do Not Love You Except Because I Love You
(exactly my point...)

I do not love you except because I love you;
I go from loving to not loving you,
From waiting to not waiting for you
My heart moves from cold to fire.

I love you only because it's you the one I love;
I hate you deeply, and hating you
Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you
Is that I do not see you but love you blindly.

Maybe January light will consume
My heart with its cruel
Ray, stealing my key to true calm.

In this part of the story I am the one who
Dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you,
Because I love you, Love, …
The Biblical truth about love...

I have attended my Nth wedding since December. Must be a sign? Hahaha... :) But what intrigues me is that in all the weddings I have attended, the passage below was used as the First Reading. I am a Catholic dogma ignoramus, but is this the required passage at weddings?

I researched the passage and interestingly, in one translation, Charity is used instead of Love.... many words we use interchangeably with love (that's why we become confused.. hahaha :)) but I guess what's important is that you just do what you feel is right.

My favorite line in the passage :
10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away.
-- Ahh.. the search for the real One...

Of all the Sacraments, I think Marriage will not become obsolete... it's a celebration... that sometimes, we get lucky.. and get the perfect timing... to meet the person we'll spend the rest of our life with...

AMEN To that :)

The Excellence of Love

1 If I speak with the tongues …
I choose to love...

I received a text message yesterday from Osang the text addictus:
" love not because you like the person....
not because you care...
love not because you know that you cannot live without that person..
just love... without knowing why..."

It's the month of February once again, and this is the first time I am going to spend it with someone special (given that we don't fight again next week.. hahaha :)). This love business is complicated and yet simple. I know the theories/rules but my gawd, it's different when applied (Applied Sciences are more useful in real life, but you need the general theories first to ground yourself right?).

What have I learned this past few months about love?
- Infatuation can be mistaken for love.
- The challenge and excitement of the chase can be mistaken for love.
- You don't feel lovey doey all the time, sometimes you fight and when both of you are hormonal... world war III…
