leaving on a jet plane

I type this from the free internet counter at the airport.

The airport; confluence of cultures. Herge wanted to set an entire Tintin comic book in the airport. The result was the rather queer Flight 714.

Right now, 60 men in black are flooding the gates and the check-in counters. So much for taking a commercial flight instead of a chartered one.

Not much time left. Gonna spend the last few minutes in Singapore watching the world revolving round this airport.

Two weeks in the land of a thousand smiles, then it’ll be over. Two weeks of seeking, striving, excelling; of advancing and overcoming.

I won’t forget…



2 gifts,

One with a story to tell,

The other which promises many stories to come.


And a blessing:

“Life’s a trip, son –

Hope you always enjoy the ride…

…and you never forget the way home.”


Thanks to the ones, and to the One, who gave me the gift of this very life.


I won’t forget.

the first trickle

Thou in thy narrow banks art pent:
The stream I love unbounded goes
Through flood and sea and firmament;
Through light, through life, it forward flows.

I see the inundation sweet,
I hear the spending of the steam
Through years, through men, through Nature fleet,
Through love and thought, through power and dream.

Two Rivers, R.W. Emerson
