I’m out of sight

 I’m gonna pick up the pieces,
And build a Lego house
When things go wrong we can knock it down

Lego House – Ed Sheeran

Would my life be simpler if it were made of Lego pieces?

I saw you in my dream last night.  It wasn’t a pretty sight, literally.   I appreciate the humour of the scenario, though, even when I wished that you weren’t there.

Like sunlight, sunset, we appear, we disappear. We are so important to some, but we are just passing through.

Just passing through, never staying put.  Should I set out now, while I still have my heart?

The blood in your veins

Found this link at Coy’s.

I’ve been donating blood since 1995. My world history teacher, Miki Sensei, told us in class that he donated blood regularly after he had an accident where he needed blood transfusion. I became curious and when the Blood Bank had a donation drive in UM, I signed up. Even in Japan I managed to donate at least once a year.

The unit had a blood donation drive recently and most personnel took part. Personally, I guess military personnel will donate blood because who knows, they might need someone else’s blood in the future.

The video below is related to the BLOODRELATIONS project. Do watch it, and hopefully it will get you to think about this: Could you hurt someone who has your blood running through their veins?

やっぱり

私は、このトシになったんだけど、まだいいのかな?まだ間に合う?

あなたはもう、手の届かない場所へ行った。近くいるのに。見ない、探さない、期待しないって、努力はしたよ。2年たってもう大丈夫だと思ったけど、最近会う機会が多くて自信がなくなってきている。避けたくないの。だけど、自分でもわかってるの。

あなたを遠くから見つめるだけでいられるのかな?他の誰かと同じように打ち明けられるのかな?

Man of many wishes

Lately I have had the strangest feeling,
with no vivid reasons here to find

Is happiness a continuous feeling? I think it comes and goes and should be measured in moments.

I love Leah’s thank you notes

keeping the night on

why is it so hard to do good?

why is it so easy to be angry at stupid people?

why can’t people be allowed to develop at their own pace and not be forced to succumb to peer pressure?

why can’t (inexcessive) individuality be tolerated?

how can we be less judgemental of others?

why can’t people ask less useless, nosy questions?

At 2am, it’s just too quiet that I couldn’t stop thinking about all those stuff. I realise that it’s in our nature to be negative, intolerant, judgemental, nosy, stupid and annoying. But we humans are also blessed with a brain that is supposed to be put to good use, complemented by ability to feel.
