To understand reality is not the same as to know about outward events. It is to perceive the essential nature of things. The best-informed man is not necessarily the wisest. Indeed there is a danger that precisely in the multiplicity of his knowledge he will lose sight of what is essential. But on the other hand, knowledge of an apparently trivial detail quite often makes it possible to see into the depth of things. And so the wise man will seek to acquire the best possible knowledge about events, but always without becoming dependent upon this knowledge. To recognize the significant in the factual is wisdom. Dietrich Bonhoeffer:


Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus.---RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.---ABRAHAM LINCOLN
There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state to another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.---ALEXANDRE DUMAS
“It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes... we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions - especially selfish ones" --- Alexander Solzhenitsyn quotes (Russian novelist, Nobel Prize for Literature (1970), b.1918)
“Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.” ---Kahlil Gibran

For years being here I've admittedly been so much attached to my laptop. I love to read and play with pictures. Those ease my mood and make me feel a lot better. And for many times I got home deadly tired, my notebook played an important role in those moments. I turned to my computer to destress, I read inspirational writings, information, design pictures and let my thoughts  do the work and I would be fine while listening to whatever music is playing.

There were also times when I felt so all alone and even cried for long, my computer was my best friend.  It was a friend  that made me smile and  ignited my senses my way and no contest at all.

I've been terribly ill last week. I had fever, cough and colds. I've got back pains that I had to ran to a massage shop just to feel better.  I might had done wrong in terms of sleeping position that have caused the pain.  No doubt, as I was so tired to just slept when I could.

Then another thing happened, my laptop broke down. I have no idea what  it caused.   It just didn't turn on, I waited for minutes and still it didn't get any better. Okay. there must be a reason for everything, I wasn't sad but  this time seems I've lost one of my "best friends'.   I'm sure my days will never be the same, and yes, my work is affected.

Hope I can get this fix soon, I'm still contemplating who is reliable enough for the mend or might take this  to the service center. I just hope again  this won't cost  me a lot hehehe or it would be smarter to get a new one for a reasonable price. :)

No laptop for now to work with and here I am in an internet cafe writing's at least a relief.....

Btw, have I mentioned writing is also a SPA? :D
