Tuesdays with Morrie is a story of how real-ilfe Professor Morrie Schwartz taught and changed the world until his last breath. At an old age, Morrie fell into illness that attacks the neurological system of the body called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS. The author, Mitch Albom, describes the illness as melts your nerves and leaves your body a pile of wax. A person could be alive and breathing, probably can still blink, but can no longer move his body.
I was attending the commencement exercises of University of Cebu yesterday where my sister graduated from College of Laws. Despite the long wait and several inefficiencies in the program, I felt in luck because the guest speaker is no other than my idol, politician, lawyer, and journalist, Teodoro "Teddyboy" Locsin, Jr. I am a fan of his Teditorial segment of The World Tonight.
A video created by Jimmy Sieczka had gone viral over the internet through Facebook and Twitter. It tells of his 20 Things Why I Hate the Philippines. It caught my attention because his video was based in the city I love the most, Cebu!
Struggling in a situation I was in, I've been wanting to read a book to console my restless soul. I do not like anything too preachy. I've opened books with interesting covers and titles, read a few pages but nothing felt right for me. I always find myself closing and putting it back on the shelf. A good friend of mine who manages OMF Literature, the store I was in, came to me and suggested Facing Your Giants by Max Lucado. Being a fan of the book and the author, she gave me an insight of what the book was about.
The Little Prince has been written in the 1940s by Antoine de Saint-Exupery yet its lessons never go Jurrasic. The lessons continually shed light to each one of us as its famous quotes are being referenced to until now. I have to admit that I have just read this book now although I have come across it several times before. I never felt the urge to read it... and boy, did I regret. I recommend you read it. Don't overthink it. Just move along the pages. I am sure you will not even want to stop once you get started.
Yes, there is more to photography than setting your camera to Automatic mode for Point-and-Shoot convenience. Your photo actually looks better when you explore the power of your Digital SLR camera. I bet it will jumpstart your love for photography too. ^_^
