  • "Junque" Mail vs Junk Mail

    I don’t know how our U S Postal Service can be “broke” when my two mailboxes are full of junk mail.  I don’t count the celebratory cards I mail and I receive during the year. Over the past two years it got so bad, I registered with the National Do Not Mail List. Ahhhh, I thought. I expect letters and notices of all types from companies I’ve done business for years. Most of them have begun use email to send their magazines.  For me “junque” mail would be in the class of Tiffany’s thinking I can afford to shop freely. When I was a teen on a day away from home in Boston my pals and I went into Tiffany’s. We thought we had enough money for a..2 continue reading...

  • RETURN-REGRESSUS

    he knew it would happen. It had to happen: the planet’s weak solution of acids made from the semi-acidette and the sands of the hardened magma coming from the core of the planet, had to create some stable links ready to exist longer than a second. There! A harpoon of the probosond was packing the newly formed balloons with the liquids’ probes. Done. Time to rest till the laborob reports the results. Some soundo-color therapy for the sore physical ego. Too much strain and too many hours of the attempts to get connected with the inter-constellation mediator to get the permission order to probe the liquid and to atomize it on board the... continue reading...

  • GRANDMA'S RUSSIAN ADVICE

    Just before my grandmother on my mother's side died at the age of 95, I whispered a kiss in her ear and thanked her for her wisdom. ? One odd piece of advice, that she had taught me when I was a child, I had carried close to my inner ear, all of my life. It had been an Independence Day warning, borne of a distant Russian wisdom, one that she had whispered to me four decades ago, when I was nine or ten years old, impressionable and the apple of her eye. The imprecation that I got from her, the warning whispered in my small rapt ear when I was nine or ten years old had been an odd warning that ruled and guided my life, and through angst, had come...1 continue reading...

  • WHY DID PAUL WRITE: 1Co 2:2

    1Co 2:2  For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.  Paul wrote most of the New Testament, was an educated scholar, taught more of God's Truth, spent years reviving the church (People), has endured more for the sake of Jesus than most any man... So, Why did he write, "For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified".  Paul's knowledge and life shows he knew much more than just Jesus Christ and Him crucified! Paul was giving us the answer to life as a Christian. Which is: Know Jesus, the Word of God, and crucify your life daily, so that... continue reading...

  • A Model

    The Asia's Next Top Model 2014 had successfully finalised last week and the winner was Sheena Liam, our very own golden girl who had beaten 15 other contestants from 11 countries respectively and outshined herself in this crucial and competitive event or one may put it once-a-life-time experience in the modelling world. She did it so well and let the audience feel that she actually is a natural model. At least, I should think so even though I was only just beginning to catch up with some of the ongoing episodes during the process, for fun reading. Sheena gave us a look of self-confidence and determination in various scenes and occasions where the... continue reading...

  • Democracy isn't "I the President", it's "We the People"

    Four days ago somebody called Eric Roth, in a comment to a Paul Krugman article in the NYT, wrote “…While [Presidents, Congress and the Courts] are all are culpable for horrific crimes… none match the toxic quality of deadly damage done by President Obama [who] within a handful of years… has managed to evoke, arouse, and then kill hope itself. That cementing of cynicism will stand as his one extraordinary and abominable accomplishment, for which he will be rightly reviled throughout history…” From where I’m standing, I see that Mr. Roth's hope is dead and his cynicism cemented but to say that his opinion is what history will reflect is a bit...3 continue reading...

  • Easter Celebration-God Is Not Done With You Yet!

    Who said your case is over and finished? It cannot be over until God is done with you or YOU say it is over. The problem is that many people give up when God is still at work with them. Beauty and glory will not be seen on you if you quit before God is finished with you. This article emphasizes the essence of Easter-the finished work of Christ So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, " It is finished! " And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit - John 19:30 (NKJV) And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, "Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was... continue reading...

  • Enough Said!

    ART: JUST FOR THE PAIN OF IT

    They were so kind. They loved it, 'this is great Art' they all said. I didn't have the heart to tell them it wasn't really Art at all. I thought to correct them about the true meaning of Art, but then my years as an artist shone through and saved me, and them. Sometimes the smartest thing you say is while your mouth is closed with only an appreciative smile. The days are gone when if I thought it, I said it. It was the combination of this moment, and a meeting I had recently with college-bound creative students that help pasteurize my thoughts about it all...about Art. I learned, through artistic pain, the three legs of the Art stool: Story,...3 continue reading...
