a symphony to melodious reawakenings.


The eleven others did not make it. This makes #17. And #1 a year.

Perhaps it is time to write again. Perhaps.

hello 2010

It's been a busy year last year. Since the last post, there's been tonnes of significant life changing events and quite a few crashing waves that hit me like harder than a wall of brick.

New job, new craze, new toy, new love. 2009 has been pretty eventful I would think. What's in for 2010? I'm perhaps standing in line waiting in anticipation to find out too..It's like that feeling you get when you're waiting to get your hands on that brand new Apple product! (i'm sure you know how that feels..) or the nervous feeling you get when you're called to the principals office. I would prefer the former, thank you very much.

Anyhow, I'll try to update at least once a month this year. So let this be the first of the hopeful 12 posts. If at all the other 11 doesn't make it, look above for the little birdie that goes, tweet tweet tweet!

hello 2010!

Hadn't updated the blog for the longest time. So thought a sonnet will be the best replacement than a long post. It'll get you thinking and deciphering it's allusive metaphors and underlining meanings. Note to all, if you don't have time to blog, a sonnet always works the minds of those readers. It's a good sonnet with a monumental meaning. I'll think of something better for the next post :P

Sonnet 116
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

There is no such thing as a little freedom. Either you are all free, or you are not free.


It may not be some heinous deed
That chills our hearts and chokes the seed;
It’s often just a trifling toy
That grabs our eye and steals our joy.

Got this off Our Daily Bread. Short lines filled with much truth and it would be no less than selfish to not share this revelation.

1. a resolve or determination: to make a firm resolution to do something.
2. the act of resolving or determining upon an action or course of action, method, procedure, etc.
3. the mental state or quality of being resolved or resolute; firmness of purpose.
4. the act or process of resolving or separating into constituent or elementary parts.
5. the resulting state.

I thought it was about time I listed a list of resolutions for 2009, a task omitted last year. It's quite interesting how dictionary.com deciphers 'resolution'. It had subtly set a couple of pointers to meeting your rez-uh-loo-shuhn .

Here's my breakdown of what dictionary.com had to say;
1. Resolution requires firm determination
2. Don't just plan, there's gotta be some action going on!
3. There's gotta be a purpose or to put it in more proportion; a firm purpose
4. There is a need to breakdown and compartmentalize the different issues while dealing with one bigger matter
5. Resolution calls for results

In attempts in keeping my resolutions, I'll start by keeping the most important;
Resolution #17: List down your resolutions for 2009.

Yay! I've got one checked off the list!

Happy 2009!
