Is Seattle really the rainy city?

Nothing can help like a breath of a fresh slight breeze, on a quiet beach, when someone's nerves are on the edge...

It seems that this space of mine has been abandoned lately. I thought today that it merits some attention. To tell that time shortage was the cause for this desertion, wouldn't be entirely accurate. Writing was always and will continue to be a sort of like breathing to me. So let's say that I'm either getting other ways to respire, or I'm not giving myself the room to breathe properly. Anyway whichever is the truth; here I'm apologizing for the faithful visitors of this page, and trying to rebuild the "rapport" I once had with this corner of mine.

A lot of things are happening lately; their rhythms sometimes seem to be more rapid than what I used to be capable to follow. And I dropped off the beats a couple of time, but I managed to stand up and harmonize with the upcoming beats of the next rhyme.

I have joined the school Journal lately and participated in one edition. It is not a serious writing, just for fun, and I'm enjoying it. However I'm not sure that I can continue in it, for it needs some sort of commitment. And I'm the queen of "disavowal" when it comes to things that I do for fun, so let's just wait and see.

The Journal club is really good place to unwind from the overwhelming study atmosphere that I started lately. It's a self-study program in which you are required to spend about 6 hours a day, for a period of 7 to 9 months; these hours are just the requirement. In fact I need much more than this to really cover the materials on time. This was not a surprise for me, I already know about this before I came here; though things feel different when you start it. People have always been the main source of motivations for my work and study; unfortunately in this program I am trapped in my desk alone, stuck just with my books and DVDs. Of course there are people studying in the same lab, but they gave you the impression of being unapproachable, they either seem to be haughty or dead. May be I look the same! but I'm not aware of it!
Yet, this was just my first few days, I am sure I will have a different opinion in a couple of weeks…at least I hope so.

Last but not least, about these pictures, which as it's evident weren't captured in a perfect time, no sunset (my favorite moment), or sunrise (my second favorite time); for the reason that it wasn't taken on a planned trip. The story is that last week I had a test. And on the noon and the evening before the test day, I don't usually study. Therefore to loosen up my stretched nerves, and to lighten up the stress, I went out for a walk in the vicinity, and capriciously I wind up taking a bus to its last stop. Of course, completely aware of where it was going -thankfully I still have a sane thinking- and I end up rewarding myself with some free moments of leisure.

That's all for today.
Thank you.
Hope You Have Enjoyed This Walk With Me

Off point a bit but.... Yes..Nice Blog and pictures too. When i saw "Living Paradox" i got excited and i wanted to know more. I have what i called PARADOX OF OUR TIME that was sent to me by my friend. I've had it for few years but it still tells the truth of our time and so called development. It's in my blog, right hand side of my Gadgets below "Labels" gadget. And now i came across the Living Paradox which is really cool.
Enjoy your day

I hope it won't be too long for you, but this is
.Today we have bigger houses and smaller families; more convenience but less time.
.We have more Degrees but less common sense; more knowledge but less judgment.
.We have more experts but more problems; more medicine but less wellness.
.We spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry too quickly, stay up too late, read too little, watch Tv too much and Pray too seldom.
.We multiply our Possessions but reduce our values; we talk too much, love too little and lie too often.
.We’ve learned how to make living, but not a life; we’ve added years to life not life to years.
.We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways but narrower viewpoint.
.We spend more, but have less; we buy more, enjoy less.
.We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet our neighbor.
.We’ve conquer outer space, but not inner space.
.We split the atoms, but not our prejudice
.We write more, learn less; plan more but accomplish less; we’ve learned to rush but not to wait; we have higher income but lower morals.
.We build more computers to hold more info, to produce more copies but have less communications.
.We’re long on quantity but short on Quality.
.These are the time for Fast food and slow digestion; tall men and short characters.
.More leisure but less fun; more kinds of food but less nutrition; two income but many divorces, fancier houses but broken homes.

Mzee wa Changamoto...
glad you didn't get disappointed when u visited my blog. And thanx for sharing "PARADOX OF OUR TIME", it is totally true. I invite you to read my first post in this blog "The PAradoxical Commandment" it has another kind of paradox too.
I believe that our life is full of paradox in every single tiny aspect of it. And in some how I am enjoying this.

welcome again, thanx for ur wishes.

"I like your thoughts and writing style"
And I respect your taste a lot, hope I will always meet up ur expectations.
yeah spring is here at last :)

Thank you all for spending time and effort to let me know ur opinion about my writing... I do need ur encourging words dear readers and friends, but what I really need more is your constuctive criticism.

Thank you

Perry Como - Seattle

Perry Como Seattle lyrics

The bluest skies you've ever seen are in Seattle
And the hills the greenest green, in Seattle
Like a beautiful child, growing up, free an' wild
Full of hopes an' full of fears, full of laughter, full of tears
Full of dreams to last the years, in Seattle
. . . in Seattle!

When it's time to leave your home and your loved ones
It's the hardest thing a boy can ever do
An' you pray that you will find someone warm an' sweet an' kind
But you're not sure what's waiting there for you!

The bluest skies you've ever seen are in Seattle
And the hills the greenest green, in Seattle
Like a beautiful child, growing up, free an' wild
Full of hopes an' full of fears, full of laughter, full of tears
Full of dreams to last the years, in Seattle
. . . in Seattle!

< instrumental break >

When you find your own true love, you will know it
By her smile, by the look in her eye
Scent of pine trees in the air, never knew a day so fair
It makes you feel so proud that you could cry!

The bluest skies you've ever seen are in Seattle
And the hills the greenest green, in Seattle
Like a beautiful child, growing up, free an' wild
Full of hopes an' full of fears, full of laughter, full of tears
Full of dreams to last the years, in Seattle
. . . in Seattle!

In Seattle . . . in Seattle . . . in Seattle!

Sleepless in Seattle

Thank you for the two links. I prefered the first more, it sounds in somehow like me recently...
" When it's time to leave your home and your loved ones
It's the hardest thing a boy can ever do"
Sleepless in Seattle is one of my best though. I like almost all of Tom Hanks movies.

glad to know u did't abandon my page yet :)
