No words

I yearn for more. 2 lines is all I get. No more. No less. The words stop flowing like a river barricaded by fallen trees. I wait and cry out from inside, but no voice is uttered.  My heart aches for something new. "Hey, we haven't talked in a long time." Yes, we haven't, but... Continue Reading →


An act of kindness is waiting…

A man dressed in worn-out clothing with a leg injury passes by many in the ever lively NYC. Businessmen, lawyers, doctors, teachers and others zoomed by him, not even giving the man a simple "hello" or cheerful wave.  What does it take to notice someone? Do they have to be critically injured? Do we not... Continue Reading →

Salt Trader and Miner

The ones who toiled in the salt mines know. The ones who struggled to survive selling salt know.

Mike had a beautiful voice and conveyed such powerful messages through his songs. Although I have only discovered... Continue Reading →

Walk for charity

Charity Miles is an app where every step counts to raise money for charities. I started yesterday and logged in 4.2 miles just from walking. You can also select running or biking mode so it's versatile. Nonetheless, the app uses your phone's accelerometer or GPS to track movement. Just by signing up, selecting a charity...

Squad 38 (Korean Drama) First Impression

I just started watching Squad 38 which is a  new drama about tax collecting, scamming and working lives of public officials. I have to say, I found several thoughtful quotes already.
