Thinking of sea, a form of a heavenly body, it comes in waves. Here in Vancouver, we love to just sit on the beach and watch the sunset. When the tide is low, we could walk and walk for miles … Continue reading
In this video, the cat is viewing his master who has died a long time ago. I can only imagine that the cat does remember and has feelings. Who says cats have no emotion?

Total Recall of the day’s gone by – not goodbye.
There’s a song in my head: “Those were the days my friend, we thought we’ve never end, we’d sing and dance forever and day.” Plenty of playing, praising and singing. Growing up in a family of 13, I am number 10, it takes its toll. I have nine siblings to be obeyed and be respected because they are older than me; three younger brothers to play with and dominate them. My turn, hah! Aside from uncles, aunties, and cousins, we are a multitude of the stars. As God said, “Go and build me a nation,” we did. Actually, that’s just the way life was in the Philippines. The more the merrier and plenty of love to give, receive and share. Not like that “Godfather” movie, you’ll end up with a horse on your bed. Yikes.
The word to describe today’s post is hypermnesia \hye-perm-NEE-zhee-uh\

I know it’s better to remember good times, good times but this one particular memory brought awareness in my little brain. My sisters love to make collages, and they post them on the wall just above the bed we all share. This is one of the pictures.
This image thought me so much, and I did not learn this from kindergarten school. From this collage, I learned to love and compassion as I grow up instilling in my heart and soul that we all have to help the children for we were children once before.
The greatest teacher for me, in my background, is Jesus Christ. Let the little children come to me. Pax Tecum, Seeker.
