CLOUDS HAVE SHADOWS, TOO.

THE SKY RIGHT ABOVE US IS SO VAST.
I CAN SAY A PERSON HAS NEVER REACHED THE SKY UNLESS HE GOES HIGHER THAN THE CLOUDS. ONE CANNOT BOAST OF BEING IN THE SKY UNLESS HE TOUCHES THE CLOUDS, OR SEE HIS SHADOWS ON THE CLOUDS. HE IS ABLE TO REACH THE SKY IF THE PEOPLE BELOW CAN SEE HIM WITH THE CLOUDS.
I NEVER TRIED SKY DIVING YET. AND I NEVER TRIED PARAGLIDING EITHER.
BUT I HAD BEEN ON A PLANE.
THAT'S ENOUGH TO TAKE PEOPLE ABOVE THE CLOUDS,
BUT WERE YOU ABLE TO TOUCH THE CLOUDS WHILE ON A PLANE?
EXCLUDED HERE IS THE INSTANCE WHEN CLOUDS TOUCH MOUNTAINS.
YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN :/

THE SKY FOR ESCAPIST
AS A KID, I WANTED TO BE AN ASTRONAUT, GO ABOARD A ROCKETSHIP, VISIT THE MOON & THE  PLANETS, AND BATTLE WITH THE ALIENS. NOW AS AN ADULT, I ENTERTAIN THE THOUGHT OF GETTING MYSELF OUT OF THE EARTH SO I COULD BE FREE FROM LIFE'S... YES, COMPLEXITY.

THE SKY CAN GIVE YOU A SENSE OF TRANQUILITY AND CAN CREATE ITS OWN DECEPTION.
AS AN AMBITIOUS PUPIL, NEIL ARMSTRONG's NAME AND NASA HAD FREQUENTED MY MIND ESPECIALLY DURING SCIENCE CLASS WHEN OUR TOPIC WOULD BE THE SOLAR SYSTEM OR THE UNIVERSE. I WAS A FAN OF HIM, NOT UNTIL I LEARNED THAT THE NASA's LAND ON THE MOON IS JUST A HOAX. :/ #RIPNeilArmstrong (MAY YOU REST 'NEATH THE MOON'S "SEA OF TRANQUILITY")

THE SKY MAY ALSO SEEM EMPTY IN AN INSTANT.
SOMETIMES, ALL YOU BELIEVED TO BE TRUE,
ALL THE ASSETS YOU EARNED AND GOT FOR YOURSELF,
ALL THE EMOTIONS YOU INVESTED TO SOMEONE,
ALL THE FAITH AND TRUST YOU GIVE TO THAT HIGHER POWER,
ALL THE  HARD WORK YOU DO FOR THE WORLD
ALL MAY JUST BE SURREAL...
ALL CAN JUST BE GONE IN JUST A WINK OF AN EYE,
WITH THE OFFENDING WORDS CAST ON YOU,
WITH THE BAD DEED COMMITTED AGAINST YOU,
AND WITH THE REVELATION OF TRUTH AND OF ESSENCE.

WITH ALL IT'S LIGHT AND FLUFFY FEATURES WHICH OFTEN CAPTURE
THE INTEREST OF PAINTERS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS,
REMEMBER, CLOUDS HAVE SHADOWS, TOO.
AND PUT IN MIND THAT THE BRIGHT BLUE SKY CAN ALSO TURN ITSELF INTO A DARK DUNGEON AND FIERY HELL.

CLOUDS HAVE SHADOWS, TOO.

OF HOW WORK AND OTHER VALUES DEMAND TIME

MY MIND HAS BEEN SO PREOCCUPIED WITH MY WORK, LOTS OF TASKS HERE AND THERE (GOT SOME EXTRA CURRICULAR TASKS, TOO).

AND IT'S A GOOD THING THAT, DAILY, ACROSS MY MIND COMES THE THOUGHT OF PONDERING WHAT MY LIFE HAS BEEN: YESTERDAY, LAST PAY DAY, A MONTH OR YEAR AGO, OR EVEN JUST EARLIER THAT DAY. FLASHING ACROSS MY MIND ARE THE HARDSHIPS I'M GOING THROUGH (SOME OF THEM MAY BE NEW, SOME MAY HAVE HELD ME LOW FOR SO LONG, AND SOME MAY HAVE BEEN SO EASY FOR ME TO COPE UP WITH. THEN, THERE ARE THE LEARNINGS WHICH I ACQUIRE FROM THOSE DIFFICULTIES, FROM FRIENDS I AM ABLE TO DISCUSS THINGS WITH, FROM THE QUOTES THEY "SHARE" THROUGH SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES, FROM THE NEWS, FROM THE WORDS OF NOVELS AND SONGS I HEAR, AND FROM MY OWN PERCEPTION OF THE EVENTS HAPPENING AROUND ME.

BUT SOMETIMES, THE TIME I AM GIVEN FOR THAT PURPOSE (TO PONDER THOUGHTS, FOR SELF ASSESSMENT AND GROWTH)  IS OFTEN CUT SHORT BECAUSE OF THE COMPLEXITIES I ENGAGE MYSELF IN.

I GOTTA HAVE A NEW BLOG ENTRY. 
AS I HAVE MENTIONED BEFORE, IT IS IN WRITING THAT I GET TO RE-ASSESS MY ACTIONS, MY SELF, MY CURRENT VALUES, MY WORLD. IT IS IN PUTTING MY THOUGHTS INTO DIGITAL ZEROES AND ONES, THAT ENABLES ME TO DESCRIBE TO MYSELF (AND NOT JUST TO ANYONE ELSE) MY CURRENT STATE OF MIND, WHICH I MAY HAVE FAILED TO SENSE AND BE AWARE OF, DUE TO THE INTRICACY OF OUR WORLD.
