Ideal Inspiration Blogger Award

Ideal Inspiration Blogger Award

To be a recipient of an award is a humble achievement. A  justification of all my undertakings in blogging.  It is a gesture of recognition and an inspiration as well.

Thanks to Rajani Blogs for this award. You can visit his site at and be convinced that his kind of writing is worth your time and effort spent.

Rajani Blogs wants to know more about myself and he asks the following questions :

  1. What inspired you to start your blog?

I retired from work on July 2013.I started using and playing the laptop on October 2013 but blogging was not taken seriously. It was just an amusement cheering myself how to pass the time. Sometimes it was a learning process, but most of the times, it was just for fun. I did not exert so much effort on blogging until I have read an article from WordPress which the writing style of the author caught my attention. I really like how she went around about her subject. It was the number of comments and Likes that attracted me to be one of those future commenters. I began exploring how to be in the world of WordPress which required a great number of hours patiently studying the hows of laptop operations. Learning a little, I started to write musings, and poems until it blossomed into full time writings. Serious compositions began in October 2014 and up to this day, I’m enjoying the pleasure of blogging. On May 2018 I stopped my laptop adventures because traveling grabbed the opportunity to blog further. Intermittently, I’d post something produced by inspiration once in a while. The whole year of 2019 was a lazy year for me until March 2020, where the lockdowns were implemented and I was caught and entangled in the province due to those limited acts of movement due to the corona virus pandemic. These lockdowns made me to be confined in the house for four months, thus, doing nothing kept me busy again in my beloved blogging thing.

2.Which type of book do you like to read?

It’s been gathering dust since we graduated from college a long time ago. It’s browning now, and those volumes really need to be browsed. It’s the ENCYCLOPEDIA  AMERICANA in 30 volumes.

3.Write a short note about gender relating to your place’s culture.

Nowadays, gender equality is not only a fundamental human right but a basis for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. In my place, it has been accepted in society that women has to do the household chores while men has to do the odd jobs as he is the head of the family. But slowly, females are catching up what men can do. There are already female taxi drivers, female tricycle drivers, female welders, female mechanics, etc. But it will take a long time for females to fully adopt to changes, that is, to be fully absorb in the workforce where men dominates.

4.What type of lifestyle do you prefer?

I like the city life but, once in a while I’m missing the provincial life style which is slow. In the city you have to rush everything. You have to run after your time. There’s so much traffic. Everybody is in a hurry. So now, I prefer the slow style of living, provincial life style.

5.What is your advice to all people of the world at this pandemic time of COVID 19?

My advice is : Follow what your government tells you. It’s for your own good. If you want to die early, don’t use your pandemic paraphernalia. Don’t observe physical distancing. Don’t wash your hands properly. Stay outdoors. In a week’s time you’ll die on the street of no return.

Photography – Symmetry #07

Nogas Island, Antique, Philippines“Some tourists have chopped these spiny leaves of this plant for reasons only them knew. But is it necessary to damage the beauty of this plant just to expose the inner structural arrangement of its leaves?”

Challenge the twilight…

a walk through this rough and hostile shore
hurting my feet with dead sea shells
bruise , cuts and bloody wounds
like a victim of torture and abuse
walking and stepping on my shadow
the heat of the sun is searing me
with fiery rays crowning my head
darkening my skin by infrared
this isn’t a hot summer yet
king sun is releasing its burning heat
this season is still on drizzles of rains
but why the hot spells of rhythmic cadence
sometime it happens in the life of man
halfway through a quiet and blissful ambience
a Gordian knot needing to be untied
to be on track again to challenge the twilight…

the wings of the sentimental drifter
winging high grand and stately above us
with little tiny flaps of motion
settled in my lonely singleness 

on top of the curious mountains
at the depths of the freezing cold seas
the pleasant sounds never faltered
to reach the ears of destiny

the rush of the blissful wind
quietly heard the flow of streams 
the lonesome mystifying lullaby 
realized the passage of dreams 

my enchanting melodious sonata
searching for the power to claim  
with the cupid's seducing-tipped arrow  
will sting the notes of the song and win  

heaven sent this nighttime sonata
to swing you to sleep to dreamland 
alter the path of your lovely dreams 
and lead those meanings to my heart...
