Just happened to stumble across this rather inspirational and spiritual poem...it reminded me of the power of words....
I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her tombstone from the beginning to the end.
He noted that first came the date of her birth and spoke of the following date with tears,
But he said what mattered most of all was the Dash between those years.
For that Dash represents all the time that she spent alive on Earth,
And now only those who loved her know what that little line is worth.
For it matters not, how much we own, the cars, the house, the cash,
What matter is how we live and love and how we spend our Dash.
So think about this long and hard; Are there things you’d like to change?
For you never know how much time is left that can still be rearranged.
If we could just slow down enough to consider what’s true and real
And always try to understand the way other people feel.
And be less quick to anger and show appreciation more
And love the people in our lives like we’ve never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile,
Remembering that this special dash might only last a little while.
So when your eulogy is being read with your life’s actions to rehash
Would you be proud of the things they say about how you spent your Dash?

Male Model Andrej Pejic
Seems like this year,gender revolution is back with a bang with fashion embracing transexuals and gender diversity as witnessed in James Franco in the cover of Candy Magazine,beautiful male model Andrej Pejic to star in Marc Jacobs campaign(who himself posed in drag)Lea T in Givenchy,her story was groundbreaking when she posed full frontal.Lea T demonstatred the thin line boundaries of sexuality.Matters of sexuality have always been senstitive,but at the end of the day everyone wants to be validated despite of who they are.
Sometimes in life you feel like you are the only one..then you realize that in fact you should be grateful for what you have.I guess is the never ending quest of humanity to run on the want treadmill and be blinded of the fact that sometimes what we want is not what we need.Though it sounds cliche,when we overcome our fears and have inner peace,it is the beginning of greatness.

Since in I am in Asia,I have connected with some of the music,it is amazing how you can feel good music without understanding the language.As I was watching a preview from Astro Bio,about the legendary Leslie Cheung whom I have heard of,then I became curious of Anita Mui.I came across a clip in you tube of her final days,quite emotional and most importantly the most amazing thing is her stage presence.

"The funny thing is that some people reduce freedom to a brand," Gaga said between tears. "They think that it's trendy now to be free. They think it's trendy to be excited about your identity. When in truth, there is nothing trendy about 'Born This Way.' 'Born This Way' is a spirit, and it is this connection that we all share. It is something so much deeper than a wig or a lipstick or an outfit or a [expletive] meat dress. 'Born This Way' is about us, 'Born This Way' is about what keeps us up at night and makes us afraid."

If you haven’t changed your mind,
Now i have to move on.
Stayed in the shadows for long,
Thought you would see the light.
Though its like a knife in the heart,
In the night,the pain will eventually melt away.
Its makes no sense,
To cultivate a barren land,
A heart waits for love and to love.

Blizzard of the snow storm,
Hearts lying side by side,
Fighting for unison.
Deep down the souls long to connect,
Alas tis a matter of time.
Tongue stuck with three little words,
The flight time is now.
He wanders like a lost ewe,
Now he wishes to have said it,
He looks around, crying silently like a tortured soul.
He choose to fill a drum with holes,
Reality clears like the morning mist.
The flight disappears through the tower glass,
Petals flying in the wind.
In his world,
The petals drips blood.
only if had borrowed time,
time for a simple ala carte meal in KFC,
hour comedy at GSC,
a ‘free’ stroll in Chinatown,
a night in a rundown motel,
he didn’t have to buy the moon.
