I Don’t Know How To Spend My Time Wisely – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

If time creates memory and memory defines time, where am i?
Am i still in the past when i hope that the good things i have will last?
Or am i now in the present when my future steps in a split second
For sure i’m not yet in the future because i still keep my prayer in my door.

If my past defines my future, where will my present be?
Is it in the middle of the two, a prelude to a future past beyond my grasp?
If my present decides my future, who decides my past?
Wasn’t my past was also once my future in the not so distant present?

Time really confuses me, so i let go of my time. They say spend it wisely.
Does being wise mean you spend your time preparing for your future?
But how can you prepare for your future without neglecting the precious present?
How can you be wise when it goes so quickly?

Good thing i got memories.
But memories belong to the past not the future.
And time moves in a different direction, memory in another.
Time moves forward. Memory relives the past.

I’ll just enjoy the moment.  I don’t know how to spend my time wisely.
I’ll just use it.

I’m All Yours Sunshine

I’m all Yours Sunshine

It’s so hot in the Philippines now and everytime i feel the summer heat some memories keep flashing again.  Let me recall some of them:

After the alleys and the cobbled streets, we decided to walk in the park and indulge in the typical summer quebec city landscape.

The view of the sunbathers, some half naked, others fully dressed,  not  in the beach, but on a park full of greens.

Oh, what we usually ignore and take for granted in a tropical country is truly anticipated with excitement and enthusiasm in a country endowed with four beautiful seasons.

How i wish i could remember the last time i invitingly said “I’m All Yours Sunshine.”

The Spider In Ottawa

Almost finished , this catchy art installation in Ottawa city caught my attention.  Captured by my lens and my wandering eyes, can’t help not to be enticed by its tentacles of temptations.

Surely, i could create a hundred poetry and a dozen themes for a picture speaks a thousand words  but why complicate things if i can just show you the scenery just the way it is. 😉

Nathan Phillips Square

Strolling and finding Toronto’s greatest public space…Nathan Phillips Square.  The fountain, the pigeons, the beige colored city hall , the ice rink (on winter) and a current tv show filming on the plaza.  Standing and having my photo taken…. looking back, that time clock at the background reminding me that time flies so quickly when one is enjoying the view so deeply.

Capture it with lens and keep it forever. No words to expressed. Thank goodness I’ve got my wordpress!  😉

Bienvenue Quebec City

I can give you a thousand reasons to visit quebec, particularly quebec city but  i don’t speak french, so  i might as well say it in universal language and that’s the language of visuals.

Since a picture speaks a thousand words, a random photos of this fascinating place might convince you that there’s no place like it.

Don’t worry i won’t post a thousand pictures here. I’m deeply convince that just this photo is enough to make you pack your bags,  try  the  “french”  fries and  indulge in  that very elusive french kiss! Bonjour!

Colors of Greens and Hues of Ingenuity

shadesofgreensStrolling around in Newcastle Island, i found a way to have my photo taken with no one in sight.Well, there were only 3 passengers on a pump boat (yours truly included) when i head to that island, the two strangers hurriedly bike around as they leave the boat.

Wandering to the greeneries , i saw  birds resting, few steps and they suddenly all flew to the horizon.,  if only i could ask them to have my photos taken. but all’s taken realizing  that’s the perks of traveling alone, serenity and ingenuity crops up and voila, a stone, a fallen trunk or a useless rock suddenly appears and one is ready for a photo shoot. Who says life offers a single hue? 🙂 – By JoelF
