I am really back ...
I know I’m back
I started this blog with a passion.
... a passion that was crystallized by the loss of my father. There was so much I wanted to tell the world. So much of myself that I wanted to show, to reveal, to share. In retrospect, I perhaps was really talking to my father ... revealing to him in death much of what I was unable to do so in life.
My relationship with my Dad did not end at death but perhaps moved to reach its perfection. That was the secret hope that drove me, ... a hope that proved true as time went by. Our relationship found life in reflection, recollection, revelation ...
Indeed, I have already come to experience a better understanding and appreciation of my Dad. I can now say things in my heart that I was afraid to share with him when he was alive. And from where he is, I know that he is smiling as he smothers me with his angel wings and whispers in my soul’s ear ... “I know anak ... I have always known. Go and live your life as it is . Have fun. Be happy. Be good. And know that I am always here”
And so this blog lives on.
I will continue to tell the stories of my life...
experiences, preferences, opinions.
I will share and reach out.
I will tell and ask.
I will think and learn.
I will hope and pray.

as if the whole world were to see the one,
and read the other."
