Define “Word”, From Word To Word

Every word has a meaning. Word has it.

It is what we say. But have you ever thought of the words you said before they rolled off your tongue?

No word can never be meaningless.

Space The Spacious and its Spaces

Space.

Everything around. It is in between. Faraway. Or close by.

Everything around us is space. Within this space is occupied by the existences both animate and inanimate. Maybe the non-existent as well.

Our scientists explains that space is expanding faster than we could imagine. Our light years that tries to reach the all the space we thought we knew. Much of it, is yet to be conquered like untamed conquests. As scientifically said, much of what knowledge of what we know is space. The records from histories to the current dailies and discoveries is also space. But is more, space is always a void. Continue reading

The Word, Quixotic

Quixotic is out of this world.

Its meaning is “exceedingly idealistic, unrealistic, and impractical” (from Oxford dictionary). It is unique. It is exotic. It is all in one word that it lingers questions and underlying contradictions.

This word came from the Spanish novel called ‘Don Quixote’. Although I didn’t read the book, one day I will if… But I did look up and stood beside the monument in Madrid once.  A story about a man with the obsessions of chivalry and falls in demise like any so-called hero would.

The Credits We Owe and The Credit That Deserves

What do we deserve?

We think we deserve more. Sometimes less. Maybe we all do for the right or wrong reason.

How do we have to contribute? For what purpose and why? We have these questions of who of what of the sort should receive. It is rather opinionated.

Credit

The Word, Eviscerate

Look deep inside, it just comes out. That is to eviscerate.

To “disembowel”. It doesn’t sound feasible.

Like “ex-” (I don’t mean the heartbroken word for a person), it is “out” in Latin. “-viscerate” came from the word viscus which is the “internal organ(s)”. I don’t know but it could be a medical term (if someone knows, tell me).

Do you understand this feeling? Someone who you might feel disdained by and couldn’t stand it.

The more to hold it back, the more it builds. It can make you ugly from the inside-out. The best description of that is, a gargoyle.

I know there are people who don’t let their emotion sway their logic but, “following you heart” makes all the difference. It is called being human. Sometimes, you need to express it out. Make it come out because it is good. Or perhaps bad. It could go either way but it is still a process. Process is growth.

Whether you are unhappy, sad, annoyed, angry or sort of negative feeling, get it out because you need to empty it. You can’t fill something if it’s already full. Like night and day, bad and good exist together; but not all at once.

This is not a hard decision to make for yourself. You have all the chances to become who you are. It no different from choosing right or wrong. You have to pick what is right, what is right for you.

Now, eviscerate. Get it out and make it, to let it out.

Commute to Communicate with the Community

Everyday, you see people (unless you are a hermit). Every person who we pass by each day are numbered by the dozens to the hundreds and then the thousands. You forget that there are millions throughout the countries and the Earth’s population of over 8 billions on this Earth.

Now let ask me you, do we know them all?

No, we don’t. It is impossible to know everyone who were born, live or dead. We have limits to explore to soul search.
