A Bad Manner

When a church bell is ringing loudly, it is a moment to reminisce the past glories. When a person is talking loudly in a public space, it is a sign of bad manner and inconsideration. Public space is meant to be shared and enjoyed by all. That being said, public sharing and enjoyment don’t excuseContinue reading “A Bad Manner”

A Morning Walk

One of the most priceless gifts that we can ever give to our loved ones is to spend time with them. We can all offer this gift, yet not all of us are consciously aware of its accessibility, necessity, and essentiality. Spend time with your loved ones today. Time is fleeting.

Dropping Off The Map

“Just thinking about you and wondering how you are doing…you kinda dropped off the map!” This is a Facebook message that I just received from the mom of a host family that I spent an entire summer with back in 1998 in southern California.

Hearts On A Tree

Some people left their hearts on a tree. On a Family Long Weekend Monday, where temperature is in the minus double digits, love is needed more than ever to warm up some lonely hearts in the street. I gave a wheelchair bound homeless man a push on an uphill street. He was on his wayContinue reading “Hearts On A Tree”

I Care Enough To Stop

We have all heard that beauty is everywhere. Although we know it to be true; however, how many of us are actually looking at our world from this perspective, habitually, in our own lives? Even when we stop to snap pictures of an object or a scene that we consider beautiful in the street, weContinue reading “I Care Enough To Stop”

Harvesting Wisdom In The Valley

If our life journey was a walk in the park, if our life journey was a smooth sail on the sea, would we ever harvest any wisdom from it?
