“…Because there are no ends, there are only means. Life carries him from unknown to unknown. Each moment is filled with this thrilling mystery: the Warrior does not know where he came from nor where he is going…” ~Warrior of the Light, Paulo Coelho

This had been on my mind since the day I found myself not “that really” scared of the dark… These shots were done after the pseudo product shoot for the site I’m currently doing.
I lit up 20 little candles that were supposed to be our stock should there be power interruptions.. I got scared too!!!
I was the only human species awake in the neighborhood during that time. felt the cold wind that was a bit cold however, I was sweating.
I had to put off the fan and the light… geez… and I didn’t notice the sun is starting to rise…
*those objects were presents from my mom (wooden box) , ex-officemates (sanrio figures) and best bud (the scary doll).

I thought I’ll be having a trip to heaven that day. The doctor even prayed before the procedure. God knows how scared I was. I feel so blessed of having a surgeon like her.
While trying to recuperate, for a few days I watched some movies, anime and tv series… one of those was House M.D. these lines caught my attention, on Season 1- Episode 9:
John Henry Giles: How many of those pills you take in?
Dr. House: I’m in pain.
John Henry Giles: Aren’t we all?
*John is an outgoing patient and Dr. House is a pain reliever dependent due to his leg injury. He feels pain most of the time.

Last saturday, my brother and I attended the one of my most awaited events of the year. I always look forward on this event. I believe that somehow this would make me inspired and awe with the works of the masters of graphics. It is a conference and a gathering of people, as what I know with “the same ideals” in life. Ideals and aim to express oneself through graphics.
That day was my second time to attend it and the best lesson I’ve learned came from Robert Alejandro was:
He shared that the “Art is-kool” stopped airing on 1994 and left the Probe team to work abroad… with a VERY GOOD PAY. But he came back after some months and realized he could do something more in our country.
Money really can’t buy everything. Even you have everything, but when you’re not enjoying with what you’re doing, nothing will happen.. it will be just a routine and nothing more.
He believes that graphic artist can do something; he is not really saying that you don’t have to leave the Philippines but to realize that there is more to do here. [pro bono, charity works, etc.. something for a cause.]
The organizer also invited Kristophe Vergne of Pixar Animation, who talked how they produced those 3d films especially the “Ratatoille”. Acid house, talked about how they got the projects from ABS-CBN and etc. Collision theory, shared something about their commissioning and freelancing jobs. Simone Legno, on how he created his characters and made a business out of it.
Simone Legno of Tokidoki, Pauline Vicencio and Ivan Despi of Acid House]
All in all.. it was a fully loaded inspiration and wisdom!

Since I was a kid I am so fascinated with this kind of house… I remember we had our own hut but without stairs… but my Aunts and Lola built another one for keeping some other things purposes… there, I played alone because no one lives there. I put my toys on the “bangerahan” (I don’t know how others call it.. it’s like a kitchen) and would pretend cooking and washing clothes alone, sometimes with my younger cousin or little bro or the kid in our neighborhood.
I felt like that I was home inside the hut. The breeze of the air was deferent, the coolness of the floor, the creaking sound of the bamboo… I love those things… and I am still wishing that I could own one standing beside the beach.
Few days ago a fellow deviant artist asked me to sign up on their forum KUBO…
Here’s how they defined the KUBO FORUM:
The name KUBO was derived from a famous Filipino Folk song “Bahay Kubo” which became an inspiration to a dream of unity and shelter different forms of expressive art forms from traditional art to contemporary digital art. Kubo not just shelter for Filipino Natives artist but also explore and collaborate with other nationality. Kubo is a home for anyone who wants to share and learn from everybody. Respecting each other’s individual beliefs. [ more ]

"… It reminds me of this water... when it is agitated it becomes difficult to see but if you allow it to settle the answer becomes clear." ~ Master Oogway of Kung fu panda [I hope I transcribed it correctly]
Another rare kind of plant and I don’t know what’s the name of it. That’s why it’s rare.
I found a lot of inspiring sites lately, and it gives me light somehow. Here are some of the inspiring sites for me:

Life isn't life without pain, without hardship, without sacrifice. In a human life you need those things in order to live, in order to survive.
This rose is still a rose even it is bended. Maybe its stalk can't handle the weight of its petals but it is still a rose.
A beautiful Rose.
*By the way, Once in a while I'll be featuring blogs / sites here for a change, not
just by posting pictures with a quotations from the mountain ranges of Tralala.. ^_~
For a start here's Mr. Skitepolis, he just started in blogspot… He writes well with his crazy pen and dull mind according to him. You might want to know him more or add him up on your blogroll and give him a smile by commenting on his entries.

Sa pag-ihip ng hanging kahapunan
Balabal ko'y init ng 'yong pag-ibig
Sa dapit-hapong kay lamig
Mga bituin kay agang magsigising
Umaandap, mapaglaro man din
Iyong ngiti hatid nila sa akin
Sa diwa ko't panalangin
Puso ko'y pahimlayin Inay
Upang yaring hamog
Ng gabing tiwasay
Ay madama ko bilang damping
Halik ng 'yong Anak
Ay! Irog kong inay
Sa palad niyo itago aking palad
Aking bakas sa inyong bakas ilapat
At iuwi sa tahanan kong dapat
Sa piling ng inyong Anak
Puso ko'y pahimlayin Inay
Upang yaring hamog
Ng gabing tiwasay
Ay madama ko bilang damping
Halik ng 'yong anak
Ay! Irog ko, O Ina kong mahal
Ay! Irog kong Inay

No matter how hard you try.. No matter how good your intentions.... YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE MISTAKES... YOU ARE GOING TO HURT PEOPLE AND YOU ARE GOING TO GET HURT...
If you ever want to recover. there's really one thing you can say. I FORGIVE YOU.

The Warrior of the light behaves like a child.
People are shocked; they have forgotten that a child needs to have fun and to play, to be slightly irreverent and to ask awkward, childish questions, to talk nonsense that not even he believes in.
And they say, horrified: "So this is the spiritual path, is it? He's so immature!"
The Warrior feels proud of such comments. And he remains in touch with God though his innocence and his joy, without ever losing sigh of his mission.

Bet your bottom dollar
There'll be sun!
Just thinkin' about
Clears away the cobwebs,
And the sorrow
'Til there's none!
When I'm stuck a day
I just stick out my chin
The sun'll come out
So ya gotta hang on
Come what may
I love ya Tomorrow!

May the good Lord bless and keep youWhether near or far awayMay you find that long awaitedGolden day today.May your troubles all be small onesAnd your fortunes ten times tenMay the good Lord bless and keep youTill we meet again.May you walk with sunlight shiningAnd a bluebird in every treeMay there be a silver liningBack on every cloud you see.Fill your dreams with sweet tomorrowsNever mind what might have beenMay the good Lord bless and keep youTill we meet again.(May you walk with sunlight shining)And a bluebird in every tree(May there be a silver lining)Back on every cloud you see.Fill your dreams with sweet tomorrowsNever mind what might have beenMay the good Lord bless and keep youTill we meet again.May the good Lord bless and keep youTill we meet, (Till we meet)Till we meet again...
