A Year in Blogging

Musings

You create your own formula of success. – Winnie

Hello lovely people! I feel joyous since today is my first anniversary in blogging. 🤗 I started with many insecurities for it has been awhile since I really write. One thing that blogging helped me is by gaining my confidence back. It had been a really worthwhile journey for me. What once vague for me is now more clear what I want to accomplish. 

To all the beautiful people here who gave me a chance to voice out my deepest thoughts, I thank you all. To all those who believed in me and been with me right from the start, I love you dearly. You know who you are. You hold a special place in my heart.

A Swedish prayer worth pondering

larrysmusings

From the 1921 silent film, Phantom Carriage, we have this prayer.

Lord, let my soul reach maturity, before it is reaped.

This prayer is worth pondering.  Is not the purpose, or at least one of the purposes of human life, to develop spiritually?  Sadly, this post’s message will not be read by many individuals, and fewer still will click the like button below.

What of the many millions of persons killed before their time by the wars that corrupt, power-mad politicians and egocentric special interests take the nations of the world into?  Do not look for justice here in this world.

The silent film, Phantom Carriage, with Swedish subtitles in the original and now with English translation below the Swedish, may be classed as being in the horror genre, but it really is a morality play of sorts.  If you ever get an opportunity to see it, it is worth…

Sampaguita

Musings

Ang Sampaguita

Bukod kang natatangi
at ika’y pinupuri
sa taglay mong katangian
ika’y iniaalay sa magkasintahan

Sinasagisag mo’y katapatan
sa may pusong kadalisayan
tunay na pagmamahal
sa natatanging mahal

Simpleng halimuyak 
pero ika’y magagalak
hinding hindi magsasawa
ika’y mangingiti sa tuwina

Englishversion: (Please bear with me. There’s not exactly a word for word translation from our language to English words. I tried my best in translating it without compromising the true message of the poem.)

Sampaguita

How unique you are
and all are praises for you
for possessing great qualities
offered to a couple in love

You symbolize fidelity
for those having a pure heart
true devotion
to one and only love

Its sweet-smelling scent
can make you feel delighted
never will get weary
only make you smile every time

Sampaguita is my country’s national flower. It is a species of Jasmine and it is believed to…

The Summer Woman by Nick McCarthy

Globe&Life

A special poem that you may share with a loved one, as written by me. Enjoy!

So long and far as she could see

her beauty and serenity

she turned away in bitter shame

not to see the worth it paid

The love I hold is very true

with my heart, I now bestow you

with placid chimes and ballad writes

stay with me on this fretful night

In your cherry blossom lips

are the gifts of winter bliss

intertwined with summers rays

you are my queen on every day

to the moon, I look astray

in its hues and uplifting gay

its shines so bright

for the hour’s but so nice

To you, my queen

my sweet evergreen

I’ll kiss the night a swift goodbye

it is gone, the sun is to rise.
