A damsel who had prayed for a millennium

Just for a persistence of faith, many people deplete their entire lives in the everlasting awaited.

  Once upon a time, there was a pretty, pure and versatile damsel from an aristocratic family.   She had a graceful name – Huimei. Her virtue made so many magnates queue up for marriage proposals. She deeply believed her prince charming was on the way. Hence, she turned them all down.   Huimei had a glimpse of a young man at a very crowded fete one day. Thought Huimei to herself,...Read On


A very ill-tempered woman

Why should we get rage always? Why should we get rage with someone or something always?

Once upon a time, there was a very ill-tempered woman. She could rage over a silly little thing always. She understood that was wrong. She consulted a Zen Master for improvement one day.   The Zen Master led her into a room after he listened to her distress. He locked the door up and walked away without saying a word. She had lost her mind completely in a flash. She jumped and...Read On


Outrageous Road Rage

When did bad driving become a personal thing?

Why does someone's crappy driving cause me to froth and seethe like a rabid, discriminating jerk? I think I’ve got an open mind and do try my best to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but operating a vehicle is not a right. It's a privilege. Why do YOU abuse that privilege? Why must you subject me, my family, and the rest of society to your egocentric display? I’m now stuck...Read On


She waits

Morning Through Night

With thoughts of blowing winds Snow shining like diamonds Gentle rains Bright sunlight Storm clouds close by Morning noon and night I am in your heart and mind When birds circle in flight When stars shine at night When I am with you Not walking next to you I may be out of sight But always with you Remember the laughter and smiles Some sadness and tears We have shared along...Read On



As I listen to Leonard Cohen singing...

Thunder and lightning sharply strikes Like fireworks show display flashing Followed by more rumblings above Then it becomes as still as the night Clouds like dust surrounding the sky Only the sounds of an airplane engine Alight the darkness can be heard flying Then it becomes as still as the night Even the sounds of the leaves swaying From the trees make themselves known Blowing by...Read On


Changing Moods

Here I am again... talking to you.

You see how boring my life is? That I constantly seeking and bothering you? Yes, I don't have anyone to talk with, so please bear with me. Don't keep changing your moods for me. One minute you're all sunshine to me then turns to tears that drench me ... no, soaking me in tears! Nowadays you're all sunshine the whole day and at night turns to tears. That is good with my old age to cool...Read On

I have walked the path of the ancient ones. Each step made me stronger. Wiser. Fearless. I don’t suffer the antics of fools. Nor do I tolerate the pretense of substance. Heavy is the granite of my principals. Cracked by forces meant to weaken me. Wedges are afforded to few family and friends. Flexible to blood and love. Yet firm in my resolve to stay the course. The ancient ones...Read On

So, you are very wealthy

I always believe if everyone does a bit good deed, bit by bit, we can make a harmonious world.

  A young man muttered at his bad luck and penniless situation.   He frowned all the days.

I think you are very wealthy!’ the wise senior said sincerely. The young man was puzzled,  ‘Why are you talking like that?’ the wise senior asked. ...Read On


The Fallen

Just a simple tribute.

Sitting in the church pew lost in thought, listening to the Veteran speak of his friends that had gone before him. My mind wanders back to a simple time of Flags, parades, and trips to the cemetery. Every year my little sister and I would save our weekly allowance to buy tiny American flags for Memorial Day. We worked hard earning that money but seem to come up short so our Granny...Read On

After the Rain

For those who love the rain

It’s raining outside, I can see through the living room window.  With my eyes closed, I imagined how it would feel on my skin so cool and refreshing making me feel clean again after it washed away all my worries and fears. As I’m watching the rain fall hard in places and the rain pounding on the window making everything look dreary.  I am amazed to see how gentle the rain falls on the...Read On

Holy Crap!

Inquiring minds of precocious children want to know...

As a proud parent of two precocious children, my limited wisdom is constantly tested. It’s tested with questions about life, love, and yes, liberty, not necessarily in that order. This past winter, while helping me shovel our sidewalks, my ten-year-old son point-blank said to me, “Kids are essentially slaves, aren’t we?” After hearing the phrase, alternate facts, my eight-year-old...Read On


My Best Friend

Friends are forever




Our eyes can be deceptive when viewing oneself

I have been at war with my body for as long as I can remember. My mind always asking the body, "Why can't you just be what I want?" and my body asking, "Why can't you love me as I am?" If this was a relationship between two people, it would be seen as abusive. The endless diets, overexercising, pills, corsets, and body wraps is my punishment for the reflection in the mirror. Only to cry...Read On


Another Life Lesson From Dad

Supporting evidence for the importance of a father's presence in their young daughter's life...

“What’s that now?” I first swallowed then spat, before explaining again. “Trap the pointier edges between your upper and lower front teeth.” “Like this?” "No." I showed her again. "Like this?" “Kinda.” I then spat. “Like this?” “Better.” “This?” “Yes. Perfect.” I spat again. “Now, bite down until you feel it split.” I waited for the snapping sound before I spat again. “But not...Read On


A Bank Savings Account Book

A harmonious relationship is built on the true love.

My mother presented me with a bank savings account book on the eve of my wedding. There was $1000.00 in it. My mother smiled and said, ‘You both are going to deposit some money in it from time to time, when something is worth for memorable. Besides the money, you both learn that there will have the unlimited happiness as you both grow old together!’ My husband deposited $500.00 twice later...Read On


Middle Men

What is the meaning of life

We walk the path of life, With death waiting at the finish line. The beginning and end are the same, What matters is the middle. Tis the path of the middle men…   What if life and death made transactions, And we were nothing more than the middle men. Our plans, our dreams, our future, Doesn’t really matter once the transaction expires.   Like the famous expression, #YOLO. You...Read On
