Cypress Gardens, one last glimpse

Posted by darbs on September 2, 2009

Our visit in Cypress Gardens must come to an end.


To EXAMEN practitioneer, it was a blessing – a place to be at that moment.

Hello there, duckling

Personal reflection. Pls. don’t read. Ah! Here we go again. The EXAMEN: The Ignatian Reflective Moment, my moment of choice which is by the way,  the ANTI Bispoy Mulongins Ispirilitsugas luhod luhod dala katulog cohort de Padre Damasoy Wakalamoy style.

Cypress Gardens 2009. The EXAMEN came alive.

That should prepare me mentally and emotionally on the road to our next destination which is Atlanta, Georgia – where I could finally visit the birth place of the Civil Rights Leader DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

” It is no longer a choice my friends, between violence and nonviolence. It is either nonviolence or nonexistence.” -mlk

But as we all know, humanity choose nonexistence… 911, Iraq War… Afganistan War… Nuclear Weapons…Armaments of distruction… killings… sak-sak dunggab… massacre… extra-judicial killings… assassinations… and continued training of our young men and women militarily, “to kill or and be killed…”

To be on the road in few hours, I need to doze off. While I was in a deep sleep (36 six minutes to be exact) here is my proof that somebody was mocking me.

Dozed off less I know somebody was mocking me

The mocking kid

The rest was history…

Feel the pain

Ouch! ouch! Feeling the NDAS 1987 pain, the 50 million brain cells that won't let go.

The moment of silence

The moment of silence, familiarizing where we are going...

Where is everybody? The place experienced recession? or they all went to Walt Disney.

I didn’t mind because I considered the experience the best quality time – The MOTHER, the Son and me.

God Bless America! My Home, Sweet Home…
