I lift the sail to your open breeze
By dividing the cable into pieces
I agree to drown in your open breeze
My morning was useless
My afternoon is not much better
Do not hold me back or confine me
Near the shore
I am willing to drown
I stay awake all night for the boatman
The waves take me and play with me
I will befriend the storm,
I will not be afraid of its frown
Release me I’m happy when it’s stormy!
Tell about a habit you’d like to break. Is there any way it can play a positive role in your life?
A habit is something not easy to break, think about the millions of smokers, they know it’s detrimental to their health and they must break this habit, but they cannot.
Then there are scores of people who love fast food, which is also harmful as far as their health goes, they are not successful giving up this craze for fast food.
These are only couple of things I’m thinking of which are bad habits, there are good habits as well, such as,”early to bed early to rise makes a person, healthy,wealthy and wise.”
At this moment I cannot think of a habit I’d like to break!
Imagine we lived in a world that’s all of a sudden devoid of color, but where you’re given the option to have just one object keep its original hue. Which object( and which color) would that be?
In a world where everything and everyone is identifiable by color, it is tough to imagine it devoid of color. If for some reason we lose the colors of the world, it will be arduous to visualize such a world.
For a very long time blue was my favorite color, I wanted my mother to buy blue material for my dress, she did not disappoint me, why would she it made her task much easier.
If I were to choose a color and an object that would be my favorite color, it would either look odd or pretty depending on the object itself.
At this time I have more than one favorite color, if I select blue I’d be tired of seeing it day after day, next is green it too will tire me.
I will give up the option to decide the color and the object.
Chocolate and Peanut butter went for a walk one day, Chocolate boasted how it was the favorite of all the humans in the world, Peanut Butter was equally proud of himself ,he bragged how a sandwich is not delicious unless it’s made with peanut butter.
The two got into an argument , they got hold of a passer by to find out who was more popular, the guy had no clue, he never heard of either, he said”sorry” and moved on.
Next they saw a little kid and asked, “Hey little boy you like chocolate or peanut butter?”
I do not like chocolate or peanut butter, I threw up when I ate a chocolate bar and I’m allergic to peanut butter.
Both Chocolate and Peanut Butter were completely disheartened, they were sad to know they couldn’t find anyone who likes them,just at that very moment, they heard a commercial on TV, “Chocolate and Peanut Butter is a marriage made in Heaven”,they were so delighted to hear it they hugged each other and promised never to fight again!
Is it time for you to leave already,
Oh my dear stranger,
Look into my heart
I have arranged all night
to have a seat for you.
Hesitatingly you came
perhaps to ask for something.
Silently in the twilight you
played with my thoughts.
You failed to express
the expectation you brought.
The bird sat on the edge of the branch
forgot to build its nest.
We met , we didn’t recognize ,
you had questions, but didn’t ask
Why did you neglect
your own desire?
Oh my dear stranger!
Nasa is building a new Voyager spacecraft that will carry the best modern human culture what belongs on board?
The term “culture” has two meanings(1) the evolved human capacity to classify and represent with symbols and to act creatively , and(2) the distinct ways that people living in different parts of the world acted creatively and classified or represented their experiences.
Distinctions are currently made between the physical artifacts created by society , its so called material culture and everything else, including the intangibles such as language, customs etc. that are the main referent of the term “culture.”
Language and culture both emerged as a means of using symbols to construct social identity and maintain coherence within a social group too large to rely exclusively on the pre-human ways of building a community.
In that new Voyager, there will be one person representing his/her language, there will be chefs from different cultures, and fashion designers representing different countries of the world.
We must have assistants of the chefs.
We’ll need musicians and their musical instruments, to entertain the passengers.
We’re less than a week away from Halloween! If you had to design a costume that channeled your true innermost self, what would that costume look like? Would you dare to wear it?
I really do not participate in any of the festivities in Halloween. The only thing I do to participate in is, I give out candies to the little one’s that come by.
If I had to design a costume I’d design one with all types of goodies pinned on to the costume, it will be my way of entertaining the kids.
If I design one I will wear it!
Tell us about a time you couldn’t quite get your words or images to express what you wanted to express. What do you think the barrier was? For bonus points try again.
I was in the dining hall of William Goodenough House in London UK. The issue that day was food they were serving, the smell completely overpowered my senses,I was certain I’ve never smelled anything so vile,I was in line to be served I did not want the food, but could not express to the chef how revolting it was. To be on the safe side and to avoid any controversy I pointed out the bread I wanted, she looked at me and said, “Is this all you want?”
“Yes” I said and moved on. While I was sitting in the dining hall I kept thinking why didn’t I tell her the real reason for wanting only bread when there were other foods I could have. I did not want her to think I was rude.
Today I won’t hesitate to speak my mind, I’d tell her: everything smells like pork,I do not eat pork!
We all seem to insist on busy, busy we constantly are.Let’s put things in perspective : tell us about the craziest, busiest, most hectic day you’ve had in the past decade.
I usually am not always so busy that it can be called the craziest, busiest,most hectic day I’ve had. When I have a day which is relatively quiet and peaceful anything added to it even if it’s kind of normal makes it a hectic day for me.
The past week I was in another city,I was trying to find a fall coat, there were many in different stores, but were not exactly appealing to me, some were too pricey, there was one I liked ,they didn’t have my size. I went looking for one from store to store, it was a cold rainy day, I had to go in and out of stores,this was becoming too hectic for me,at the end of the day I was walking faster and faster to catch the subway train to get to the right station.
When I was done running I arrived at the said station, I walked out it was raining and windy. I wanted to wait , my daughter thought we must get out and start walking, our apartment was nine hundred meters away, which meant swift walking or else we’d be completely drenched, we reached it but had to climb the spiraled staircase of more than thirty stairs. When I reached the front of the door I was breathless!

We were walking along on the streets of Montreal’s downtown shopping center, my daughter’s friend mentioned a book she read which she loves. i wanted to know the title,my daughter replied,The time traveler’s wife,Mom.”
I said, “i want to read it.”
We found a book store and luckily the book was there in the shelf, I bought it and came back to our rented apartment. I opened the book read a few pages,decided I must read it when I’m home.
Here I’m home I managed to read two chapters but not sure it’s as good as they say, told myself finish the book and then decide if you like it.
I’m not convinced it’s such a good book, I haven’t found time to read it from where I left off.
I have prompts to do,songs to translate, food to cook, take my afternoon nap, when will I finish reading the book so I can decide if I like it just as much as they do!
