Coming Home III

Besides familial ties, there are other ties in life that will always bind.

Perspective II

We need more than eyes to see…
We need that definitive moment…
When the line of vision aligns
With the heart, mind and soul!

Celebrating Life

Celebration calls to mind occasions of festivities, gaiety, spontaneity and hilarity – as we dance, drink, make merry and engage in cozy small-talk – bringing to the fore the uni-dimensional experience of such occasions.

However, celebrating life entails a deeper realisation and awareness that life is fraught with polarity – the extremes of which touch, kiss and co-exist.

When we grace a a wedding ceremony, we celebrate a union as well as a departure; when we witness a new birth, we celebrate a new lease of life as well as losing of that in the security of the mother’s womb; when we attend a funeral, we celebrate gained liberty as well as lost friendship; when we graduate at a convocation, we celebrate an entry into financial independence as well as a farewell to academia stimulation. Indeed, there can be tears at a wedding, fear at a new birth, joy at a funeral and worry at graduation.

Hence, celebrating life is an acceptance and total embrace of life’s extremities – that my loss is someone else’s gain, my victory, another’s defeat!
