Where things matter

Many of the things I wanted to write about vanishes just before I could grasp them. What is it today? Let me try to recount.

I met a little fella when I changed into my running clothes this morning. The fella was comfortably lounging at the back of the car. Even when I moved around and opened the back door, it stayed there; and so I did not bother it. It was very interesting as I first thought of it as a fallen leaf but it moved. I just went on and ran my 30 minutes.

As I was travelling home from work at 8AM-yep, I work at night; the traffic was really bad. Unusually unmoved. When I got past the traffic lights, I saw a cordoned area with police officers around. It appeared that someone inside an SUV was ambushed. But while the incident is horrific and that I should feel horrible, my mind was busy planning on another route to take so to avoid going late to my daughter’s rehearsals.

Yes, this post is about trying to make sure that my kid do not miss her rehearsals. And while at it I can stay at the back of the car writing my case studies or reading work emails and sort the ones that needed replies.

I did search on the internet any news of the incident and found the information enough for me to utter a few words in my head that “may the person/s survive and come out well” of the incident. I just can’t fathom why there is a need for violence and why for some it becomes easy to shoot at people.

Anyway, while waiting for my daughter I got hungry and asked someone at school for a place to eat. I was directed here. A low profile inexpensive food stall we call “Carinderia” and found my favorite soup, “Tinunu-an Kalabasa”.


I waited for the rehearsals to be over, 2 hours of waiting is an opportunity for a lot of things for me. Reading, writing and or working. Many things come our way. Our days are filled with stuff that we control or controls us. The choice is ours. ❤️

Every one agrees that life is fleeting. And that life is change. It never stays the same. I am a believer of choice, of opportunities embraced and lost, I dictate what happens to me. This makes me hopeful, makes me dream, gives me courage and clears my realm. And I hope to share how change affects my life.
