Hang the Phrases with “Hang” and “Hanging”

It is now over 20 blogs, I held myself together. I don’t want to say “hanging in”. And figuratively speaking of which, I think is better described.

It is funny that after listening to a song, I am actually writing this. Music has always been therapeutic and the lyrics had reminded me of some past experiences or unknown wonders that is carried within. Then this particular one I was listening to is “Who’s Loving You” by the Jackson 5. R.I.P to Michael Jackson. As I hear the lyrics goes, “Don’t you know I sit around, with my head hanging down…” the inspire just came in. I am literally sitting and just thought of what I felt; it plays the words in my head as my body throbs. And then later with some real life events that happened and talked with a good friend of mine, this is what I realized. Continue reading

Motioning the Motion & Emotions

Everything moves.

Every being and system has its own movement in accordance. Everything participate as an ongoing ensemble. Each thing has a role to play in a never-ending story.

With movement, things are happening but what you cannot see is the feel of emotion.

I motion my hands to write what I feel. I do hope my inputted emotions in words can be motioned into you.

The Word, Ephemeral

One word is just too short. Everything with life is, as well.

The word, “ephemeral” describes it in one word. “Lasting for a very short time.”, the meaning leaves a daunting wonder. It reminds how the little things matters.

Like the flowers, they are ephemeral beings on Earth. These still and small green to colorful bits of life have only a brief moment or I can say one season.

Spring, the time to bloom is where its’ prime is unleashed. It is an ephemeral time.

How “to Befriend”, not “Friend” to be Friends

I wonder of what today’s “friend” is defined.

“Friend” can be either too ambiguous or vague to tell.

Suppose those who are your friends. And suppose they aren’t.

I would like to ask, what sort of friend is that person. Are they there? But no one can tell or should they?

The friendships are the circles is surrounded by a larger circle that is a world; however, these many small circles are very often overlapped. This is where I will draw the fine lines of friends.

Envision Your Vision for the Visual

What do you see? How does this look?

We have questions about how and what something looks or look like. Some cannot see it or imagine it nor ever could compare.

We see what we see. Sight is powerful and much more believable than our other senses, it could be used as an advantage. However it is a disadvantage depending on certain situations. Seeing can do justice and injustice.

You see what I am writing. As you see, this is the point. My vision will envision you some shredded light of what I see.

Envision

VERB [with object] Imagine as a future possibility; visualize. Continue reading

The Word, I

I.

Please and firstly, do not be confused with my writing. As I write I, I do refer myself. Coincidentally though Igniza does start with the letter I, I though it was funny. And remember that the word, “I” is the topic.

Do not be deceived. As “I” should be carefully identified and never overlooked.

It might be a single letter, there is more than that. It is a matter of power and acknowledgment. There is hidden formality and self-respect. Yet also more importantly, true of self.

Look to Captivate But Never Truly Captured

The places we seen, the times we witnessed and the things that were presently current. If we try to capture that, we all fear it will escape.

I thought of the all those powerful rulers of the past; the kings, queens, emperors, empresses, czars, sultans, dukes, duchesses and many people with claimed and born of nobility, fame and wealth. They have what I supposedly imagine; from gold to jewels, lands of lands to mountains, priceless treasures to exotic animals from afar. Today, these kind of people still exist.

You can understand as we were called lowly peasants or common folks, those are things that are usually unobtainable. But think again, you can get those things. The reasons we think we cannot, is that it is only subjective and we are born into different situations of values including morals. However if you live in poverty, the chances of those dreams are almost to none; but then I didn’t say impossible. I will remind to say that someone can come from “rags to riches”.
