I’m Already There…



He called her on the road, from a lonely hotel room,

Just to say to hear her say I love you one more time

But when he heard the sound, of kids laughing on the background

He had to wipe away a tear from his eye.

A little voice came on the phone, Said Daddy when are you coming home

He said the first thing that came to his mind.

I’m already there, take a look around

I’m the sunshine in your hair, I’m the shadow on your ground

I’m the whisper in the wind, I’m your imaginary friend

And I know I’m in your prayers, OH; I’M ALREADY THERE:

She got back on the phone, said I really miss you darling,

Don’t worry about the kids ,they’re alright,

Wish I was in your arm, lying right there beside you

But I know I’ll be in your dreams tonight, and I’ll gently kiss your lips

Touch you with my finger tips, So turn out the light

And close your eyes,,I’M ALREADY THERE:

Don’t make a sound, I’m the beat of your heart

I’m the moonlight shining down, I’m the whisper in the wind,

And I’ll be there until the end, Can we feel the love that we share

OH I’M ALREADY THERE

We maybe thousand miles apart,but I’ll be with you wherever you are,

I’m already there, take a look around,

I’m the sunshine in your hair,I’m the shadow on your ground

I’m the whisper in the wind, and I’ll be there until the end

Can you feel the love that we share

Oh, I’M ALREADY THERE,  OH I’M ALREADY THERE

Native Arts

I was just reading an article the other  day and coincidentally I found this art work from a Filipino artist. I’m a lover of arts and I find these arts  beautiful, unique and interesting,  A very fascinating and very hard work of art.  So unbelievable, so unique and amazing, how one could paint on banana stalks. And the one thing how to preserve these works of art.

Interesting arts  … Painting  on Banana Stalks, painted  by Alvaro Jimenez.

Philippine Painting on Banana Stalks.. It never cease to amaze people of the craftsmanship of Alvaro Jimenez not only in his Letra’s Y Figuras but also in his paintings intricately made on banana stalks canvass. Years of practice and dedication brought him to mastering this art form

1.A Mother and Child Painting by the window sill. A lovely Filipina Mother on native baro at saya with her young daughter. If you would look closely, you will see the fine lines and the texture of the banana stalks which indeed could add more challenge in the process. However, blended with the color combinations and fine details of the portrait from the subject to the design of the dress and the background, all in all it is a splendid Philippine Painting by Alvaro Jimenez.

2.Another Mother and Child Painting with the Filipina Mother on native Baro at Saya and her baby boy.Baro meaning a blouse and Saya  a skirt. An old Filipino woman costume.


Children’s Eyes… You can read in between the lines

 There’ are  always that special feelings when you look at the children’s eyes,, whether they’ve been  naughty or not. you can always read in between the lines. Children’s eyes speaks more than words.

Some find it in the face of their children
Some find it in their lover’s eyes
Who can deny the joy it brings
When you found that special thing
You’re flying without wings………

 my nephew

shaun

The day I was bound to fly back home, early morning at 6 a.m, my little nephew came to bid goodbye.I ask him why so early and he looked at me with his sad eyes, tears wanting to roll on his cheeks and said ” I don’t want to miss you going. I looked in his  sad eyes and said ..I’ll be back..I will see you again very soon.He replied, why do you have to leave.I can’t give any answer to my little nephew at that moment ..my tears wants to roll out. I looked back for awhile, then gave him my answer.  Again, he said, why do you have to go?,  I gave him a big hug  and he said I  will miss you…These simple words has given me  joy and  tears.

Muenster Hafen


City of Münster originated as a monastery founded in 794 by the Frisian missionary Liudger to aid Charlemagne’s campaign to gain control over the Saxons. In 805, Münster was made a bishopric and, in 1170, it obtained its town rights. In 1648, a peace treaty was signed at the Rathaus, marking an end to the Thirty Year’s War.  Today Münster is a city of about 270 000 inhabitants known for its university and as an administration center.

Münster Hafen is an old Port,  Old buildings renovated  into cafes. restaurants, bars, market and art galleries. Events and many sensations are being celebrated or held here specially in the summer time. And is a very relaxing place . One can walk here miles and miles, after a walk,a meal  or a coffee break. you can also relax at the edge of the lake.

This is one of the events held last year.

I hope you enjoyed the walk and thanks for joining !!

The Climb

Kennon_Road

The Climb

I can almost see it
That dream I’m dreaming but
There’s a voice inside my head saying,
You’ll never reach it,  Every step I’m taking,
Every move I make feels Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking  but I Got to keep trying
Got to keep my head held high

There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes you going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb
The struggles  I’m facing,  The chances I’m taking
Sometimes they knock me down but
No I’m not breaking  I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I’m going to remember most yeah
Just got to keep going

And I,  I got to be strong  Just keep pushing on, cause
There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes I’m going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes you going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb , Keep on moving
Keep climbing , Keep the faith baby
It’s all about , It’s all about
The climb,  Keep the faith
Keep your faith

Lyrics.. The Climb

Some find it sharing every morning
Some in their solitary lives
You find it in the words of others
A simple line can make you laugh or cry
