WHAT MORE CAN A BLOGGER ASK FOR?

WHEN PEOPLE APPRECIATES YOUR EFFORTS AND SINCERITY…

FOR YOU, AND OTHERS LIKE YOU, TOO.

WHAT MORE, THE VENUE WAS THE CULTURAL CENTER OF THE PHILIPPINES!

OH, MY.

IT’S THE HOME FOR THE ARTS…

WHERE HAPPY SPIRITS MINGLE FREE, AND YOUNG, AND AWESOME…

WHERE YOU MEET YOUR JOURNEY’S END, YOUR LIFE’S QUEST, AND YOUR SEARCH FOR BEING…

IT IS A HOME IN THE FARTHEST REACHES OF YOUR ENIGMATIC SELF.

IT IS A HOME, TOO, WHERE ANGELS MEET AND FLOURISH

AN EXPRESSION OF THEIR TRUE SELVES

AND BEAUTY WITHIN.

ang lalaking nakatingin sa hubad na puno…

sino ang lalaking nakatingin sa hubad na puno?

“ANG LALAKING NAKATINGIN SA HUBAD NA PUNO”

me and the tree

Siya ang lalaking nakatingin sa isang hubad na puno…

Marahil, may nalalaman siya-

Na tanging siya lamang at ang punong iyon ang nakakaalam…

Minsan, tinanong sa kanya:

“Dito pa ba nakatira si Robbie?”

Sagot niya:

“Si Robbie? Wala na siya… matagal na. Hindi ko na alam kung nasaan na siya… Minsan, umibig din siya, pero nasaktan siya. Lagi siyang nagmamahal sa mga kaibigan niya, pero iba ang nakita ng mga ito sa kanya… Alam niya, naging mahina siya, pero kahit papa’no, lumaban din siya… Si Robbie, oo, wala na nga siya…. matagal na.”

At mula noon, iba na ang mga nagmahal sa kanya…

Ang lalaking iyon at ang puno…

Sa ilalim ng lupa,

Anim na talampakan mula sa ilalim…

Sila’y nagkasama…

Inalagaan siya ng punong iyon…

Minahal, pinagmalasakitan,

at,

ibinalik siya nito sa BUHAY.

Marami siyang nakasama mula noon.

Maraming nagmahal,

Nag-aruga,

Nagmalasakit…

“we all love the MOTHER EARTH”—from the “65”

earthearthearthearth

“WE ALL LOVE THE MOTHER EARTH… AND WE’LL COME BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN JUST TO PROTECT IT… FOREVER.” — from the “65”

Earth

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
wiki

Earth, also called the world and, less frequently, Gaia (and Terra in some works of science fiction) is the third planet from theSun, the densest planet in the Solar System, the largest of the Solar System’s four terrestrial planets, and the only astronomical objectknown to accommodate life. The earliest life on Earth arose at least 3.5 billion years ago. Earth’s biodiversity has expanded continually except when interrupted by mass extinctions. Although scholars estimate that over 99 percent of all species that ever lived on the planet are extinct, Earth is currently home to 10–14 million species of life, including over 7.3 billion humans who depend upon its biosphere and minerals. Earth’s human population is divided among about two hundred sovereign states which interact through diplomacy, conflict, travel, trade and communication media.

According to evidence from radiometric dating and other sources, Earth was formed around four and a half billion years ago. Within its first billion years, life appeared in its oceans and began to affect its atmosphere and surface, promoting the proliferation of aerobic as well as anaerobic organisms and causing the formation of the atmosphere’s ozone layer. This layer and the geomagnetic field blocked the most life-threatening parts of the Sun’s radiation, so life was able to flourish on land as well as in water. Since then, the combination of Earth’s distance from the Sun, its physical properties and its geological history have allowed life to thrive and evolve.

Earth’s lithosphere is divided into several rigid tectonic plates that migrate across the surface over periods of many millions of years. Seventy-one percent of Earth’s surface is covered with water, with the remainder consisting of continents and islands that together have many lakes and other sources of water that contribute to the hydrosphere. Earth’s poles are mostly covered with ice that includes the solid ice of the Antarctic ice sheet and the sea ice of the polar ice packs. Earth’s interior remains active with a solid iron inner core, a liquid outer core that generates the magnetic field, and a thick layer of relatively solid mantle.

Earth gravitationally interacts with other objects in space, especially the Sun and the Moon. During one orbit around the Sun, Earth rotates about its own axis 366.26 times, creating 365.26 solar days or one sidereal year. Earth’s axis of rotation is tilted 23.4° away from the perpendicular of its orbital plane, producing seasonal variations on the planet’s surface with a period of one tropical year (365.24 solar days). The Moon is Earth’s only natural satellite. It began orbiting Earth about 4.53 billion years ago. The Moon’s gravitational interaction with Earth stimulates ocean tides, stabilizes the axial tilt and gradually slows the planet’s rotation.
