About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

If by chance...

There is this plaque that my dad has had for many many years. I think since my primary school days.

I will write what is on the plaque soon but under the plaque, my dad has typed and pasted these words, "Read, Think, Give A Seriouse(sic) Thought, And Apply in Your Daily Life."

Very simple words on the plaque, somewhat common sense even, but many people over the years have been critical of the plaque. I could not understand why.

As the plaque reads:-

I do my thing,
and you do
your thing.

I am not in
this world
to live up
to your

And you are
not in this
world to live
up to mine.

You are you
and I am I,

And if by
we find
each other,

it's beautiful.

Life is beautiful when people meet.

Companionship is about a union of people with compassion and passion sailing together one one ship to some destination, through the storms and high winds and calm seas.

Take care and be well.

hmmm...That's really deep. So many many times i tie myself in knots trying to be someone i am not and trying to live up to some others idea of what a successful man, or husband, or friend, or ... well, of a human being is.

I have spent YEARS untying those very knots i tied, and finding myself, myself, as i am. And discovering, hell, i'm not soooo bad after all.
