Review of Older Now  
Review by elephantsealer
In affiliation with SENIOR CENTER GROUP  
Rated: E | (3.5)
Being "Older Now" as well as "being 60" is really one of the wonderful things that happen to us. Just you wait until you get to 92. Actually it is the best thing in life, I mean when you get to a certain age, which somehow it came to you and to everyone we know as a homo sapien. It is the most adventurous things in life, getting to a certain age, and finally realizing you are there...

Age is just a number; it is something we all arrive at, at some age, that is. Have you ever wondered, though, what it would be like not arriving at some "place" after all the long journey of life? It is indeed fun to know we have arrived, even if we try very, very hard not to get there, whatever that age is!!!!!!! As I mentioned, "age" is just some word that may or may not mean anything at all, until we realize we are indeed humans; and arriving at some age is just a part of getting there; and thank goodness, we do get there!!!!!!!!

Review of Duct Tape

Yes, isn't it "a shame duct tape can't mend a broken heart"? However, writing helps; it takes away the "sadness" of a "broken heart". Put your feelings on paper and you realize it is a tremendous help to "mend" how a "heart" can be mended...

Review of Snowing Snowing  
Review by elephantsealer
In affiliation with SENIOR CENTER GROUP  
Rated: E | (4.5)
Why does "Snowing Snowing" urges someone to create a poem? What does snow means to the writer? It gives the writer a feeling of "brightness", of "beauty" and of much appreciattion for the "boldness" and "coldness" of snow. It gives someone a feeling of appreciation of the coldness, of the way snow falls, and how it feels within the writer. It is most understanding to appreciate something cold that falls out of the sky; it is a great feeling to let others know that "snow" is not just, plain, snow because to the writer snow comes as cold and bold as well as "glistening and glowing" and it is snowing it the writer's part of town!!!!!

Review of Friday  
Review by elephantsealer
In affiliation with SENIOR CENTER GROUP  
Rated: E | (4.5)
"Friday" is a funny, little tale of how we all look at days of the week!!! What in heaven's name should a "retired" person think of what day it is? We all get to say something terribly silly when we get to "that age", do we not? Why count the days of the week? It will come any way, no matter how we look at it, yes? Is this what we call "boredom" at its highest level?

Anyway, "Friday" does bring in some sort of laughter and joy, no matter how we look at any day of the week. Fridays make us all look relaxed because we all realize how the rest of the week, I mean the last working day of the week mean to us!!!!!!

Maybe it is best to say: It is Saturday!!!!!!

"I wont live past 30" is a short little tidbit about dying. I believe we all think of dying, however, this short tale does tell us that because the father died at age "29", that he/she, too, will die before reaching the age of 30.

When we write, we show much of ourselves through our writing. We believe in many things, and because of what beliefs we have we tell ourselves that many of what we write is true. However, in this instance, the writer did not mention why the "dad" died young. I think it is good to know what and why the father died of. Then, it can be assumed that not living past the age of "30" is part and parcel of one's life....

How "Hilarious" should a story be? Enough to raise a smile or a teeny laughter? Well, I think I would like to comment that this little tale does bring laughter and more, I believe, to be really noticed. How does one really feel when one is "DAMN cheated..."? I suppose one should laugh, too?

Hilarity is the point of this little tale; and in order to see the "scam" in this little episode, one must laugh out loud!!!!!!

It is good to realize that writers, like this writer, has a good sense of "hilarity". Carry on with the humor, writer.....

Review of 27 Years  
Review by elephantsealer
In affiliation with SENIOR CENTER GROUP  
Rated: E | (3.5)
"Memories and sadness" are dominant factors in "27 Years", a short write about remembering people who have gone ahead of us. Why do we write about 'memories and sadness'? Because they are factors that make us believe there is love within us; that there are unending 'sadness' to our 'memories' as well as love and laughter to keep us remembering people who have gone ahead of us.

Write on, I should say...

"Without Looking Back", in its shortness, brought to the front the very words that were said; the hurt that lingered within one's heart; the 'last tears' that were shed; for the end of a "courage" within a love.

Poems are expressions of the heart that give courage to writers. And writing becomes a memory, a memory that reminds us that writing is precious. Poems are valind works that keep hearts brave. And crying becomes the poet's response to memories.

Review of MANGO ICE CREAM  
Review by elephantsealer
In affiliation with SENIOR CENTER GROUP  
Rated: E | (3.5)
"Mango Ice Cream" is just lovely!!!!!! Thank you, Naomi, for making it!!!!! I just love it; I mean the mango and the ice cream!!!!! And together!!!! What fun!!!!! Did you know that mango is my favorite fruit? And that I come from Manila, left Manila for Hongkong, and then left Hongkong for England; and now I live in Sacramento, California, my home for the final years of my life.

I always read you when I see you and what you write about. Sometimes, I feel I should not have left the Philippines. However, it seems my life became me when I decided to work with the Church of Christ in Hongkong, which is why I left Manila. And now I am a British citizen, having married a Brit almost 20 years ago!!!!! However, he passed away recently; and in my aloneness, I realized I am missing him a lot...

I shall and truly try your Mango Ice Cream, to help me out of my aloneness, just for a short time, though...

Do not mind me, I am just having a cry...


All goodness to you...

"Between Life and Death" is a cry for help; a plea for understanding; a desperate struggle to find the right answer to a failure, to understand the "cycle" of "suffering" that seem unending. Though grief seems great and one is "powerless" to stop the unending suffering, there is a way one can and will be able to be strong, to face the many trials in life. In our search for the many "unthinkable" hours of grief and pain in our life, we tend to grieve and wonder why we are in so much pain? However, our pain is one instance where we are tested whether or not we are strong, in body and soul, to understand and to bring ourselves awake in order to find ways and means to help us find ways and means to relieve our suffering. If through our grief we are unable to find ways to relieve our suffering, the first thing for us to do is to remember that there many ways to help and relieve us of our pain.

First, we pray for guidance. Prayer is the best way to help us understand the many, many ways to give us strength, to find ways to solve our problems. Prayer helps us to be still, to be quiet, to look into our souls, to find ways to help us through the many difficulties that we face. Then, we find strength as we realize that there is after all a way to come out of the many wrongs and unending difficulties that crowd our life. Be still, God says, and you will feel and find the answer to all your griefs and difficulties.

Review of Smile......  
Review by elephantsealer
In affiliation with SENIOR CENTER GROUP  
Rated: E | (3.5)
"Smile...." is a great advice that any one can and should use, whether or not she/he is driving, walking, swimming, riding, etc. It is one advice that should be taken as seriously as one manages to live among people and within one's self.

We all love writing because we want others to understand what it is we love to say; and make our tales much more clear for others to fully realize; that what we are writing about is something to "smile" for.

Review of Guide Me, Lord  
Review by elephantsealer
In affiliation with SENIOR CENTER GROUP  
Rated: E | (3.5)
"Guide Me, Lord" is a short tale about a woman who was on her way to buy the week's groceries. It is a sort of a "miracle" story, short and to the point. And the point is: a grateful heart for avoiding a car accident.

We all go through something like this story: something that we would call a "miracle" because there was no accident that would have caused death and/or injuries. There was the strength of heart and mind of the woman driver as she remembered to drive with care. Otherwise, it would have been a loss of "life and limb".

We need to write stories similar to "Guide Me, Lord" because this tale gives us a strong feeling that if we use care as we drive, we get the satisfaction that we used our own strength of mind and spirit as we drive and avoid accidents.

"Mary's skirt incident" made me laugh!!! It is an incident that happens to almost any girl. It is a reminder to any girl, in fact, to be aware of. I, myself, went through something like this tale many, many years ago. And it is totally embarrasing!!!

No matter, though, because "Mary" and her friend would definitely know what to do next time something like this should happen again!!!!!!

Review of July 2006  
Review by elephantsealer
In affiliation with SENIOR CENTER GROUP  
Rated: E | (3.5)
"July 2006" tells us of the beginning of "war in Lebanon." It is a short piece that tells of the many terrible events that may happen in one's own country. It hints of "Flames of red and orange" that burn; of "thunderous explosion" that rocks the city; of fear in the hearts of people as their country is "ravaged" by bombs; and of "plumes of black smoke" that "climb into the air". How does one struggle against years of war? How does one feel the destruction of one's country?

It is indeed a terrible happening that one's country goes through a war. It is devastating and most of all experiencing war is the most inhuman event for people who believe that war is evil.

"Navigating the Path of Language Learning" is a short piece that believes in "acquiring a new skill" as well as improving oneself through the acquisition of communication and "comprehending the world". Language learning gives one the opportunity to learn, to embrace global culture, to meet and understand challenges and to "thrive not only in college but also in real-life situations."

This short piece is a great challenge to communicate and understand the many challenges we face in life as well as have the skill to try and master the many situations we face as we study and learn to communicate properly. In short, this short piece does impress upon us that learning and understanding are part and parcel of life.

"Childhood memory" reminds us of what happened in the good old days; the many things that make us understand and make us realize that the memories of years past are what we are today and what we become in the future. We learn from our past as we move on with hopes and with the understanding that our tomorrow is solid, guided by the many memories of "yesteryear".

Review of God's Got This!  
Review by elephantsealer

Rated: E | (3.5)
Yes, indeed!!! "God's Got This" and not only this but also that, then, and what... All one needs to do is believe; believe that God is there, is always there with you, with us, with any one of us. We sometimes forget; or we get much, much too busy to bring our sorrows, our loads, our angers, our problems to the God who is our comfort, our life, our hope in every little thing that happens or may happen to us.

Such great words to remember: "God's got" whatever there is within us, among us and for us. God is there for us; for the many things that we do, God is with us; and we will get through whatever hardship there is because God is God, our life.

"How do you move on?" is a short piece of writing that deals with one's ability to "move on" after a person experiences tragedy; such as the passing of a loved one; how to be able to continue living after an experience of tragedy; how to "snap back into reality" when one's wife/husband passes on?; how to "move on if you're still stuck in a time freeze of crying" because you have been deserted by your loved one?

It is indeed a tragedy to experience any of the above situations, and finding a way to get out of such experiences is truly difficult. However, learning to cope is indeed one of the things we, as individuals, do go through in life. We somehow find a way to look into our hearts and find a way to cope, to understand and to get help from those who are able to give us the strength of mind and spirit to be able to cope.

The "Value of Friendship" make us realize that we are not alone in this world, even if we are totally without someone to care and love us. The world is with us and in us and every where we are at; we are fortunate to be in a human world, where we are able to find friends or even people unknown to us become friendly with us. Humanity brings to us the learned value of connecting with others; of understanding the human value of being one another; of connections that become a part and parcel of our growing up and learning the value of having someone who would be part and parcel of our lives. Friendship is wisdom, followed by a connection with another who would be a part of our life.

"Dream and challenge" make us realize that it is indeed a most amazing way to feel the grand and satisfactory success that happens when we persevere with strength to follow our ideas and grand hopes. It is all right to stop and try to learn and make attempts to work for something we really and passionately desire. Dreams are strong desires to find a way to succeed at something that seems too high to be achieved. However, if there is strength in decisions, then the result would become a successful way to earn the approval of not only relations but also perhaps the world as well.

Review of The Great Unknown  
Review by elephantsealer
In affiliation with SENIOR CENTER GROUP  
Rated: E | (3.5)
"The Great Unknown" reminds us that "we are to be the masters of the universe"; a short tale of how to "teach the next generation one immutable resouce: respect." It is a short thought and decision to "first master ourselves" before "we must teach the next generation one immutable rsesource: respect."

This short piece lets us realize that if we are to become "masters of the universe", "we must first master ourselves" in order for us to "teach the next generation one immutable resource: respect."

"Respect" as per this short piece "has ended more conflicts than love or any other emotion." It is a short tale of realizing that "respect has ended more conflicts than love, or any other emotion."

Indeed, a short tale of knowing how to use reason in order to be able to create respect. This is indeed a great call for "reason" to deal with others.

Review of Lost in Wales  
Review by elephantsealer

"Lost in Wales" is a short narrative of a joke. A husband invites his wife to go to Wales with him, to deliver a parcel. And guess what? The pair met a "joker" who led them to the wrong path. A fun way a joker made upon a husband and wife as they tried to deliver a parcel in North Wales.

This is a short tale about one person turned a joke on a husband/wife team who were to deliver a parcel in Wales. It is a fun game, all right; as well as a joke make on the two people who tried to deliver the parcel.

We read stories likes this; and sometimes it is fun. However, the fun obviously is not "fun" to the two people who tried to do a job. It is sometimes a "bad joke" that was done for the sake of laughs and jokes.

Review of The Gift WC 226

Rated: E | (3.5)
"The Gift WC 226" gives us a good idea of how to appreciate "little gifts" made by our children. We do not question it; instead we keep it and show appreciation for the "gift". It is a wise mother who learns to appreciate little gifts from her children. This little tidbit of a gift from a child to his mother is a truly good and kind example how mothers should react when accepting a "gift" (?) from a child. What matters is the thought...
