He will blog soon

He expressed interest before. In fact, he already had his blog in Friendster account before which he hasn't been updating because he no longer visit the said social network site - he's busy farming.

Since he has interest, and I was really hoping he would, I have already reserved a domain which he can use once he begin to be serious.

I'm talking about my eldest son, Ralph Emerson.

As of late, he was asking me more often about blogging, the latest of which was, "Can I blog too?"

Of course, I am more than willing to allow him and make him use the domain that has been parked for almost a year now.

So I changed the name servers, created the databases on my Hostgator account and installed WordPress so he can start his blog.

His blog, Realm of Thoughts, is already up. I already gave Ralph his password and told him how to create a post.

I was excited the whole day, always checking his site while I'm at the office if the "Hello world" post has been edited or deleted to give way to a new post.

On the first day, the blog didn't move. I guess, I should not hurry him up... but I know, he will blog soon... and I also know that his blog name, Realm of Thoughts, fits him well..

I want to write

If only I knew that it is writing that I wanted to do earlier, I would have saved a lot of people from trouble. I wouldn’t have wasted anybody’s time, resources, and efforts… I would have just kept myself secluded in my own corner, with my pen and notebook, my computer and my keyboard.

I would love to be just that… uncaring of the time that would pass, nor of the world that evolves around me.

Alas! It’s too late, passion keeps burning but the flame is always being doused… too much of “other” things to do… much MORE important things to do.

And writing… it’s just there.

It is something that you-should only-do-when-you-have-a-free-time-because-you-do-not-earn-anything-from-it-and-it-does-not-put-food-on-your-table-nor-send-your-children-to-school kind of thing.

It’s irritating!

But what’s more irritating than that, is the fact that it is true.

I want to write, it’s the only thing I want to do.

If I would have my way, I would write until my last breath… if only I could.

Forever, my baby you will be

I blinked, and there you are
all grown up...
a young woman
I fear not the future
cause you're with me
tomorrow I know
you'll find your own life
but I'm sure you can do it
you have your mother's genes
you are strong and smart
when things don't always go well
you know where to run
no matter how grown up you've become
no matter how far you have gone
I will always be here for you
as I have told you
when you were still so small
my promise to you I'll keep
forever my baby, you will always be

Woof Contest Winners - January 1, 2010

Not a bad start for a new year ;)

WOOF Contest – Top Picks


Zorlone – “Planet's Saviour” - After seeing the movie Avatar, I just needed to express how I liked the story with a poem.

Roy – “Hope, growth and prosperity - symbolism... color... vision... hope

Dragon Blogger – “A Life Ended” - A Life Ended is a poem about someone depressed and contemplating, then finally on the verge of committing suicide. This is dark poem and ironic considering it was written on New Years Eve and many people played happy words, for some reason my mind just formulated a dark poem today.

Zorlone – “Battle Court” - For someone who is passionate with badminton, this poem takes it to a whole new level.

Hope, growth and prosperity

like the leaf of the tree
it signifies growth
a continuing process

for prosperity
a pigment that shows
proof of productivity

like grasses in the meadows
peaceful and serene
a place to play and be free

Ushering a new day
moving on to face tomorrow
bonded by tests from the past

while flames of zest burn within
with conquest and triumph as ends
no rush nor haste will be taken

after the storm that has come
one thing remains strong
we hold on to it as we stand
