If i never see your face again

Have you ever had this bizarre feeling when after spending some time with a person and then not seeing them for a few days you cannot remember there face anymore?

Hmm it's weird. My memory is usually infallible. Yet, when I try to picture in my head a person I recently met and spent an amazing time with, I'm blanked.

Does that mean i didn't get enough? Does that mean I might like the person?

Oh the places you''ll go

"You have brains in your head
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourselves
In any direction you choose
You're on your own
And you know what you know
And YOU are the guy
Who'll decide where to go." 
     Dr. Seus

I just want to give a shout out to those out there who think that pettiness, drama and self-pity are gonna get you somewhere... I'd rather stick with Dr Seuss, move on and make the choices that will take me far. 

They say misery loves company, don't try me. I wouldn't be great company and anyways, I'm on my way...

Your mother in 50 years

I've been visiting a distant cousin of mine lately at the local hospital. The first time I walked into her room, it was my first time meeting her. She is a lovely woman, unfortunately suffering of physical old age illnesses, but mentally she is perfectly healthy. It's a pleasure to talk with her about the family members that were before my time, and I tell her all about my occupations and my family.

Tonight her son came into her room and I had the pleasure to meet him too. He is my second cousin, but about the age of 54. I learned that he is a lawyer and is not observant at all.

What surprised me though was the way he addressed his mother. His attitude was all but saying I'm happy to see you're doing okay mother. He treated her like she was completely senile to the point where I started feeling uncomfortable.  I felt uncomfortable to see her being put down by a son to whom I know she has provided great care and education ( I know the other son who is a renown neurologist).

It made me sad to see that one could disregard the value and meaning of a mother to whom we owe so much, if not all.
