Time To Take A Break! So Long!

After months of posting and sharing,
I decide to quit blogging,
I won't feel great
if I continue looking around stories true or fake,
I won't feel at ease
if I don't have an agenda to discover inner peace,
For those I wish to honor or have honored,
Give a grin and focus on your own space,
For those I've accidentally overlooked or misunderstood,
Please forgive me for the frank honesty but i mean no harm.

Students, study hard and improve your grade,
Workers or professionals, work hard and feel comfortable
for your loved ones' sake.
Friends and families,
Please take good care and enjoy a blast of blessing

Thank you for the huge tolerance,
embrace, encouragements, and selfless love.
Always, I pray for victims, less lucky ones,
and always, I love you, as a friend.

take good care.

The Hackathon Hackers Code Straight On ‘Til Morning: Posted Sep 8, 2013 by Jordan Crook

Kovert Is A GPS That Lets You Keep Your Phone In Your Pocket To Foil Would-Be Muggers

The TC Disrupt Hackathon is just as much about the journey as it is the destination.
More than 1,200 coders showed up to the SF Design Center to build something awesome, make some new friends, and present their wares to a panel of amazing judges.
They coded through the night, fighting sleepy eyes, tricky Wi-Fi and hacker-style roadblocks, but still they prevail. For a look at their journeys, check out the video above.
And if you want to watch the hacks presented live, check out our live stream right here.

Migrant Boat Sinks Off Italian Coast By REUTERS (New York Times)

PALERMO, Sicily — A migrant boat capsized between Sicily and Tunisia on Friday and hundreds of people were in the sea, the Italian navy said, and the national news agency ANSA said corpses had been spotted.
The incident came just over a week after at least 319 people drowned when a boat carrying Eritrean and Somali migrants sank near the southern Italian island of Lampedusa.
"There are at least 200 people in the sea and our helicopters are picking them up," said a navy spokesman, adding that two navy ships were also on the scene.
Maltese authorities were co-ordinating the rescue operation, which was in Maltese waters, and a Maltese ship was on the scene, a Maltese navy spokesman said.
The boat sank only around 70 miles off Lampedusa and survivors would be taken there, he added.
Last week's disaster was one of the worst in a long migrant crisis that has seen tens of thousands of people arrive in flimsy, overcrowded boats in southern Italy, and some vessels wrecked. Lampedusa, a tiny island midway between Sicily and Tunisia, has borne the brunt.
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, 32,000 have arrived in southern Italy and Malta this year alone, around two thirds of whom have filed requests for asylum.
Earlier on Friday at least 500 more migrants in at least three separate boats arrived or were rescued on the way to different parts of Sicily.
Most migrants come from sub-Saharan Africa, but this year many are fleeing the Syrian civil war or political turmoil in Egypt and other parts of North Africa. Many are drawn by hopes of finding work in Europe and often do not stay in Italy.

Sisters © Debbie A. Burrous

One plus one equals two you see
But somehow it's different with you and me

When we're together we share one mind
A happier pair you'll never find

I'm only complete when you are near
To lose you someday is my biggest fear

You know my dreams and my every thought
No stronger bond could ever be sought

We have a lot in common it's true
But who'd have thought, who ever knew

Twins we're not, so it's not ESP
But I'm not complete unless you're with me

More than friends, I can't explain it all
With you as my sister I feel 10 feet tall

As sisters and friends we're quite a pair
One soul, one mind is what we share

You make my world a better place
I live each day to see your face

It takes two halves to make a whole
My heart and yours we make one soul

Four Seasons of Our Souls


Autumn, the time of centering,
Winter, the period of emptying,
Spring, the season of grounding,
Summer, the moment of connecting.

Beauty of sparkling
desert living, a Spartan
way of existence
Listening intently yet
Unfazed of the searing  heat

Please Don't Depend On Me for Everything....

What's your fate?
What kind of life style in your plate?
If you refuse to tell,
Then I don't know.
Let's talk about mine
While we have a sip of wine.
I never yield to any power,
I won't sell my pride even if it is only for an hour.
I love my own name,
No blame game.
I prefer to smile or grin,
I love to be free from discouraging thing.
But, in case I fail,
I won't wail.
If I break a rule,
I will admit it and stay true.
If I lose my job,
I won't go to streets to rob.
If I am hit by a car,
I will accept my fate and find ways to heal my scar.
If death arrives,
I will delete my files from my hard drives,
I will smile like a cauliflower,
                                                 And seal my life with one last shower.

Life In Haiku Form: Happy Father's Day, Dads....

Floating in the air
is a golden rocking chair,
are you happy, sir?

The Sun is setting,
Someone is having wedding,
What celebration.

Leaving shame behind,
I giggle with open mind,
Closer to Christmas.

He's on computer,
She's watching beside,
They share JOY with pride.

"I love you, " She says,
"I love you too." He agrees,
They kiss in deep bliss.

Together We Can

 Together We Can

Together we can,
Make freedom.
Together we can,
Make world peace.
Together we can,
Stop world hunger.
Together we can,
Bring our soldiers home.
Together we can,
Stop the war.
Together we can,
Help the economy.
Together we can,
Have happiness.
Together we can,
Run from fear.
Together we can,
Have no fear.
Together we can,
Stop Time.
To fix everything.
Together we can,
Make everything okay.
Together, we can do anything.
