Rean here…

Didn’t realize how tired I was yesterday until I attempted to wake up this morning.  I was so tired and beat after the previous day’s show at the Pergola mall.  I was so busy getting my ballet students ready for their performance that I didn’t realize how tired I was.  As soon as the adrenaline was gone, I was like a flat tire.  When you engage in something you love, it truly makes you forget your own limits.  Perhaps it’s the best anti wrinkle treatment.

My parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on Friday.  I will be bringing over the
Acts Manila Ballet company to perform during this special event.  Another special treat will be a dance number my family is performing for my parents.  We count the days in eager anticipation for this once in a lifetime event.   Friends and relatives from overseas are coming over to join our family in this special event.  As a bonus, we get to enjoy Davao’s sun which beats the best indoor tanning lotion hands down.

Yesterday was a great day as my ballet students from Jesus the Risen Savior School performed my choreography at Pergola mall, BF Paranaque.  While they may not have been the best group in terms of technique or performance, they surely stepped up to challenge I set before them.  Ballet is about executing steps with right placement and technique while meeting synchronizing movements with the music. The somatic demands beat the best supplements for weight loss as you train for precision control of the whole body.  I am truly proud of my girls perfomance yesterday, now I will push them to higher levels of technique and performance.

Far off in the horizon lies majestically…A moody mountain, a sight to see…A beauty it is, in days of gloom…When mist and clouds veil its glee…In days of warmth and days of sun…It’s quite unabashed with its sense of fun…Oh that I may run to it or raise my scopes…To experience this wonder, quite hard to cope…Blessed be the Shaper whose hand has wrought…Makiling that my heart has caught.

The mirror never lies…it unveils the seasons of life.  Loudly it yells: “wash the chocolate off my cheeks.” It beseeches us to treat acne that peppers our adolescence.  The creases on our forehead, it lovingly presents, pricking our bubbles, illusions of our immortality.  There are days we ignore it…When we insolently pursue our own fantasies…Alas! The mirror’s message remains.  We are who we are.  We are where we are…It is in accepting this that we can change what we see through the looking glass.

The giving of gifts is no easy matter.  It takes one to ponder the match between present and person.  Should I give a shirt? Perhaps a toy? Or maybe customized elmo gifts from  Whether it be something meant to help or the please it’s object, the gift must be the child of a true giving heart.  It must be conceived in genuine Christian love, expecting nothing in return.  May it be the key to unlock hard hearts to a living, loving relationship to Christ.

A heart pounding tune surrounds me as my vehicle stays still.  It detaches me from the prison that lies outside. Stalled vehicles that rushed to get somewhere are no longer my concern as the melody takes my soul to flight.  Bye, bye smog…bye, bye horns…bye, bye reckless drivers…CRASH!!! What was that? Is it what I think it is? I should have taken those car insurance quotes seriously.  Whew!!! Thank God!!! It’s the guy next to me.  (O Lord I pray that you grant me a steady hand and a watchful eye and I pray that your grace be upon the guy bumped his car.)

I’ve always wanted to live in a sustainable home.  To build an Earthship is in my to do list. I’d like to use garbage for my walls and bamboo for my rafters.  I’d harness the sun for electricity and heat.  I’d reuse my sink gray water to grow my own food before sending it down the toilet as black water.  Perhaps, I’ll even use a Saniflo toilet so waste can be better decomposed in the exterior garden.  Oh how I wish I had the time and resources to do this now.

Rean here… Chaos…glorious chaos. Wrecking my nerves each day.A toy here…a sheet their…clutter, clutter everywhere…Is this how my domain should be? Can there really be such a thing as document management that works? How does one prevent the onset of entropy in one’s abode? ARGGHHH!!! Oh how I wish the 2nd law of Thermodynamics could be repealed. Until then, I bend my back, take my broom and sweep…sweep…sweep…
