It’s 9:27 PM in my wall clock, Dec 31. Let’s forget the world in 2 hours and 33 minutes.
Happy New Year to all. Whew.
Its January 14, 2015 and I still do not know what to say in my site. This ought to be a really real new year, I keep telling myself that. I have no idea. I mean, there are many things I want to write but I feel they’re all fragmented.
OK, here is something that really amused my morning. I was reviewing world current events… it’s mostly about Paris attack by alleged Muslim extremists, when I stumbled on it.
It is a picture of a man under arrest. No, it is not a failed suicide bombing attempt. It is not what I thought it was. Guess what it is all about. 🙂
But, why ‘really real’ to new year? As we all know, every year that comes is new and they are all real.
What I meant is, every year that came seems to be the same. This year ought to be different. Also, I hope this year would be happier, or happy if it has not been.
I had a talk with Jack M Arricivita this morning. Jack is son of my Compadre, Fortunio G Arricivita. From Jack I’ve learned that his dad, Tony, is in coma. And the sad news about it is that his state could be permanent. From motorcycle accident resulting to head injury.
To Comadre Tessie and Family: Dont lose hope, miracles did sometimes happen.
I signed up this Blogsite yesterday. I can’t think of a better name so there it is – RLTJ. At least for the time being. Looks like plenty of ‘housekeeping’ ahead of me in my site…
The first letter is that of my Given name. Second letter stands for my father’s First initial added to mine- a deviation from Filipino custom because usually parents would have done them like LTJ Jr. Third letter is my Middle initial. And the last letter is that of my Family name. I spent more than half an hour thinking, thinking and thinking what to make of this site yesterday until, unable to make up my mind, I decided to go somewhere else.
Now here I am again confronting the same thing- what to make of my Blogsite. I was thinking of devoting this place to Farming and for uses of my group–BAYAWAN VALLEY FARMERS’ ORGANIZATION- a non partisan, non religious organization that I helped organize in late 2003. I have thought of retiring to a farm life.
In the other hand, I was thinking of using the site for my High School group –BCCHS BATCH 67, Binalbagan, Negros Occidental, Philippines. Members of this batch are in all continents – with scattered Filipinos all over the world. The group was forgotten until very recently when homecomings were begun to be held. Old acquaintances are being brought to light again. I guess people think of their old hometown and everything of the younger years when they have aged and tiring… Mga gurang na.(Feeling old)
Also, I was thinking of using this place to rant about SOCIETY, POLITICS AND ECONOMICS. I hated Blogsites which called themselves “progressives” and “democratic” but moderated people OUT FOR NOT EXACTLY CONFORMING TO THEIR VIEWS. I got the whole idea when I passed a place called “Dont Block The Blog” sometime ago.
Maybe I should give everything above a corner in this place. Help!
