nose bleeding literally and the notion of a bloody canvass

27 September 2007

kahapon, nag-nose bleed ang pinsan ko na itatago na lang natin sa pangalang , verlyn. nagdugo ang ilong niya pagkatapos kong sabihing isa siyang ‘bourgeois pretending to be the voice of the majority’. pero syempre joke lang iyon. katatapos lang naming manood ng kokey o nanonood ng kokey ng biglang umagos ang sanlaksang dugo mula sa kanang butas ng kanyang ilong.

syempre, nagworry ako. tinanong ko sa kanya kung gaano ka-frequent ang pagdudugo ng kanyang ilong. at kung nag patingin na ba sya sa doktor.

dito sa dubai, sa mahal ng check-up, hindi ko masisisi ang pinsan ko kung estranghero sya sa salitang doctor at clinic. (iranian hospital – 50dirhams – equivalent to 600pesos-ni hindi ka nga nila hahawakan o gagamitan ng stethoscope tpos sisingilin ka ng 600pesos!absurd! (=^.^=))

makalipas ang ilang sandali, nalasahan nya ang maalat at malansang dugo sa bibig nya. ok sa all right, pati sa bibig lumalabas ang dugo.

sa isang taong nawalan ng nanay, at naging factor ng maaga nyang pag-uwi sa orig nyang hometown ay ang aming obvious negligence, mas naging cautious na ako sa lahat ng uri ng symptoms ng pagkakasakit. yung kay mama kasi highblood sya at madalas ang nose bleeding nya at may obvious amount of blood whenever she spits. (or spat?)

(hindi lang streak. naisip ko pwede n syang gumawa ng abstract painting sa pagdura nya sa isang blank canvass kaso lang ‘magiging madugo yun panigurado’)

sana ma-realize ni kazin na isa lang ang buhay ng tao and gift ito sa atin ni Lord, dapat pangalagaan at hindi i-taken for granted.

a blog is

a snippet of your existence
a line that divides fantasy and realism
a trash bin of your frustration
a collection of memoirs of people inside you
a catalyst
a joyous journey through your mind
another window of your soul
an hour glass
a conscious dreaming
a picture
a word
gazillion conversations
a portal
a closed door

… a connection to yourself and to other people
… it is what it is depending on its content
… it is what it is how you write on it not how you make it seems to be

day of morons and not so moronic

24 September 2007

ngayong araw na ito, marami rami akong nabasa mula sa mga iba’t ibang bloggers ukol sa isyu ng relihiyon. ang galing galing nung ibang bloggers, in terms of writing and intentional pun. pero sa totoo lang, nalilito ako sa kanila. naipagkakamali kasi nila ang pagkakakilala sa Diyos at ang pagsunod nila sa relihiyon nila. nagiging atheist tuloy yung iba dahil nariri-mariman na sila sa kinalakhan nilang ‘programming’.

ewan ko ba kung kailan naimbento ang relihiyon.
hindi naman ito ang sentro dapat ng usapin.

dapat ang Diyos. hindi ko rin malubos maisip kung bakit naniniwala silang walang Diyos. nabasa ko sa libro ni Olaudah Equiano, isang african slave na kasamahan ni William Wilberforce, sa kanyang autobiography, ang nigeria ay hindi inabot ng krusada ng anumang relihiyon nung kanyang kabataan. bagaman ganito, maituturing nyang may takot sa isang dakilang nilalang ang kanyang mga ka-tribo. naniniwala sila na may isang dakilang bagay o nilalang ang may likha ng lahat ng nakikita nila.

nasa tribo sila at salat sa modernong sibilisasyon pero kahit kailan hindi nila inakalang sa unggoy nagmula ang tao. at hindi sila atheist.

anyway, second day ng masasaya kong araw. nasa bakasyon si jen, boss ko. 2 weeks pa syang mwawala kaya hindi ko alam kung ano pang pampa-busy ang gagawin ko sa office.

for the meantime, personality test from blogthings

You Are a Dreaming Soul

Your vivid emotions and imagination takes you away from this world
So much so that you tend to live in your head most of the time
You have great dreams and ambitions that could be the envy of all…
But for you, following through with your dreams is a bit difficult

You are charming, endearing, and people tend to love you.
Forgiving and tolerant, you see the world through rose colored glasses.
Underneath it all, you have a ton of passion that you hide from others.
Always hopeful, you tend to expect positive outcomes in your life.

Souls you are most compatible with: Newborn Soul, Prophet Soul, and Traveler Soul
