What’s wrong with silence?
What is it that silence makes people feel uncomfortable?

Why do people always have to fill the air with words?

That above was said by Morrie Schwartz. I can watch that movie a million times and not get bored of it. Everything he said is so true about life, and that we all miss out on. Whenever there’s awkward moments, I think of that. I can go on quoting him for ages, because every word he says has a meaning, has a lesson we can learn.

Have you ever been in a mood where you just don’t feel like smiling or happy? But you don’t really know exactly what’s wrong either. Maybe I do, but I’d like to believe that’s not the reason. I’ve been in that mood a few times, and it’s not great. I’d like others to know I’m in that mood but I also feel bad. It’s not good and I need to get things straighten out.

My good friend once told me objects are never just objects anymore, they are objects endowed with meaning. I occasionally look back to that email, and smile at what he’s written. The memories are stuck in your mind. It’s such a beautiful thought that wherever you go, you will think of something that sticks with it.

I look from far away towards the stanley rocks, and I think of you. I keep coming back even though I know I shouldn’t. You have changed me, in ways never imagined. I think of the things we plan to do and I smile. We are in two different worlds, and yet you still care so much. It amazes me. I wait for the next time we will meet.

God. I really believe you put me through this. To teach me a lesson. A big lesson. Inside the big lesson, I’ve learned a few of them, but I haven’t gotten to the top. The big smack in the face reminder. Show me the way for you are the truth, the way and the light.

Trust in the LORD and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Delight yourself in the LORD
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in him and he will do this:

– Psalm 37: 3-5

Something I ask.
