Shadow of Seriousness

13 Feb

I must admit, in all seriousness, that I am aware of my lukewarm attempts at keeping the “blogging” going on…  Let it be known that there isn’t the slightest shadow of doubt there, no, none at all!

Hence, in this yet another attempt at keeping the “blogging” spirit alive, here is my picture as a result of the “…hunt for shadows and incorporate them into your shot.”

After-work Delight

20 Jan

Overworked or was I?  It’s been a few months since I have started working… shifting gears from freelancing to working full-time.  Indeed, I do feel overworked and slightly underpaid… but then again, a steady income did feel good!

and so….

The Greatest relief in the World comes from the fact that “this too shall pass“…

and so…

I’m thinking of taking a break because I know soon I can afford it.

The Greatest break in the World comes after “months of being overworked“…

and so…

Where would I go?  Where should I go?  To the mountains or the sunny beaches??  Soar or Float???

What could be more aesthetically appealing?  The mountaintops that steal the colours from the sun… the ocean that dances and sparkles with all hues possible…. the strenuous walk to the mountains or the lazing on the water/ gazing up the sky…

and so…

The quandary… exposure to the harsh cold or the scathing sun?

The Greatest dilemma in the World comes from having to choose “where to holiday“…

The Boss of Calm

22 Dec

My Boss is the epitome of calm. He has this calm aura about him… whether he is panicking or just thinking – he exudes nothing but calm.

Coincidentally, I am the opposite.  I am anything but CALM. I am easily excited, I panic easy, I am full of enthusiasm and it all shows.

I still remember the day when I was first interviewed by my “Boss”.  He would ask a question and pause… Me being the typical “must-fill-the-silence” kinda person kept blabbering until my brains separated my mind from my tongue.  Suddenly, I was split into two – the mind wasn’t able to make sense of the words that my tongue and mouth were forming… and yet my tongue couldn’t take the hint and kept at it.

Fast forward two months… My boss is still the calm self and I still the opposite.  Fortunately, I have become great buddies with another hyperactive colleague.  She and I always speak about him and how calm he ALWAYS is.  She has been hatching plans to shake him off his calm but so far she hasn’t succeeded yet.

Maybe because I am anything but calm, I admire my boss even more.

Police Report — Diamond Mike Watson

15 Dec

Today I filed a missing persons report for my sister, Deborah Kay. It appears there was never such a report filed since she vanished as a child. This will be submitted to the Indianapolis police, where my birthmother was living at the time of her disappearance. I hope the relationships I have forged with my […]

Protest or Talk Big

7 Dec

The Weekly Discovery Challenge asks us to write about “…a moment in which someone asked you a question you weren’t sure how to answer, whether because you didn’t know, were too uncomfortable, or thought you might offend or confuse the other person…” in Tough Questions.

So I scratched me head and racked me brains… tough questions, tough questions…  Unfortunately, the scratching and the racking didn’t yield much…  But then, I remembered a TedTalk on “Big Talk”.  So instead of ransacking my unyielding brains, I did a google search on the TedTalk on the Big Talk.

Kalina [in the pic above] from the “Make Big Talk” speaks about ditching the small talks and instead heading straight to the big talk.  Imagine walking up to a complete stranger and asking them point blank what they want to do before they die.  In her site, she has some candid videos of what happens when she does the big talk.  Her idea of making big talks and skipping the small talks is thought-provoking and also gives an unconventional spin to the “courtesy” filling-in-the-silence small-talks, that we have been ordered to do for ages.

So what would be better – making meaningless small talks with strangers who you meet ever so briefly OR stick to the small talks… the conventional “small inner voice” may even protest… Then there is –> how would I react to such someone asking me Tough Questions right from the get-go.  Would I be kind enough to pleasantly respond or would I shout back and become abusive in protest.
