for candice

since you requested, let me start off with an anecdote that i took from my private journal back in ’03.

you must always have a secret plan.  everything depends on this.  it is the only question.  so as not to be conquered by the conquered territory in which you lead your life .  so as not to veel the horrible weight of inertia wrecking your will and bending you to that ground. you must make secret plans without respite.  plan for adventure. plan for pleasure. plan for pandemonioum,. as you wish., but plan. lay plans. constantly.

and when you come to, on the steps of the presidential palace, in the green grass beside the highway, in your cell’s gloomy solitude, your secret plan finished or foiled., ask your comrades, ask your cellmates, ask the wind, the waves, the stars, the seas, ask everything that ponders. everything that wanders, everything that sings, everything that stings – ask them what time it is,; and your comrades, your cellmates, the wind, the waves, the stars, the seat will all answer. ‘it is time for a new secret plan.  so not to be the martyred slaves of routine, plan adventure, plan pleasure, plan pandemonium , as you wish; but plan, plan secretly and without respite

taken from a post off a random wall.

episode 6:
i came back home at 12 midnight last night.  i saw an elderly couple walking their dog and greeted them.  when i went out of the car, they were gone… and there was no way for them to hide elsewhere.  angels.

episode 5:
everytime i drive, i notice birds fly right in front of me.  it feels like they go for the thrill of dodging cars even though they have ample space to dodge them. 

episode 4:
the sky was clear.  it always has been ever since i got back to cali.  i propped my windows open and let the cali breeze flow through me.  strips of farmland moving like parallel lines on golden brown hills.  life is good.

episode 3:
was at the googleplex to visit a colleague.  they had some sort of event on the grounds while i walked my way to building 43.  some googlers were playing volleyball while i noticed the t-rex figure near the court.  a huge screen showed worldwide searches as i used my access card past the lobby.  web app business as usual at this very vibrant place.  mountain view had great weather that day.

……………………….

i’m back in norcal again.  ever since i flew in, i’ve been all over the place although i like keeping myself busy.  i’ve been grateful for being all around the area to finish my tasks.  caught up with old friends, met great people, networked with business partners and opportunities, accepted a venture with google, and all that good stuff.  and now, i have decided to move back here this year.  i’m gonna be living in the mountain view/atherton area.  and now i realized google installed free wifi access in the mountain view area which i think is sweet.  google, myspace, facebook, youtube and the like already had their time.  a good friend is creating a web app and i may either submit it to google or get a venture capitalist to start our own company.  now’s our time to shine in cali…

    your episode 4 reminds me of an SNL skit…
    [“The sun is set. The stars shine in the sky. The night air is tinged with anticipation. And it is time to meet…The Continental.”]

    im very tempted to get either 360 or ps3 after playing guitar hero! kasi nga lang i always think i could always use that money for something else.. same time they would end up sitting around the house anyway.
    i buy madden and ncaa football every year but not until the last few months when my friend challenges me to play against him.. but other than that it was usually my brother who would play them.
    kailan ka uuwi sa moco?
