Fly Away

October 31, 2007

I just learned that a good friend already flew away without saying goodbye. This one’s for you, kabsat:

“When will you be home?” she asks
as we watch the planes take off

We both know we have no clear answer to where my dreams may lead
She’s watched me as i crawled and stumbled
As a child, she was my world
And now to let me go, I know she bleeds
and yet she says to me

You can fly so high
Keep your gaze upon the sky
I’ll be prayin every step along the way
Even though it breaks my heart to know we’ll be so far apart
I love you too much to make you stay
Baby fly away

Autumn leaves fell into spring time and
SIlver-painted hair
Daddy called one evening saying
“We need you. Please come back”
When I saw her laying in her bed
Fragile as a child
Pale just like an angel taking flight
I held her as I cried

You can fly so high
Keep your gaze upon the sky
I’ll be prayin every step along the way
Even though it breaks my heart to know we’ll be so far apart
I love you too much to make you stay
Baby fly away
ohh…
I love you too much to make you stay
Baby fly away

This was sung by Corrine May and I have to thank my brother for finding this for me. I fell in love with it as soon as I heard it. Try listening to it and more of Corrine May’s music here.

Aganannad ka, apo. No goodbyes. See you around the bend.

Starting them young

October 28, 2007

Pausing for a few reminders to SK voters:

  1. Go out and vote tomorrow.
  2. If they give you money, accept.  I am certain it came from public coffers anyway.
  3. Listen to your conscience and listen well.
  4. Think of your children and your children’s children.  You owe them.

Disturbing

October 10, 2007

I was about to sleep when I checked the Philippine Daily Inquirer and came across several disturbing breaking news.  I am listing the headlines with their dates of posting: 

  1.  Quake hits Papua New Guinea / 11:58pm (Mla time) 10/09/2007
  2. 5.4 magnitude quake hits Laoag / 04:51pm (Mla time) 10/09/2007
  3. Moderate quake hits northern Japan / 08:00am (Mla time) 10/09/2007
  4. Magnitude 6.0 quake strikes near Mariana Islands in Pacific / 10:41pm (Mla time) 10/06/2007
  5. Magnitude-3.9 quake rocks 2 Ilocos Norte areas / 01:51pm (Mla time) 10/05/2007
  6. Magnitude 6 quake hits Banda Aceh / 10:20pm (Mla time) 10/04/2007
  7. Quake rocks New Zealand / 09:04am (Mla time) 10/04/2007
  8. Strong earthquake rattles western Indonesia / 12:22pm (Mla time) 10/02/2007
  9. Moderate quake jolts Tokyo region / 07:32am (Mla time) 10/01/2007

These are from the news archives just for the present month.  Personally, these are more relevant that what the powers-that-be in the Palace by the Pasig River are doing.  Please, let us pray.  We are far too weak to withstand another Banda Aceh.
