Daily Prompt: The Critical Eye / On Humming the Same TuneApril 22, 2013
This blogsite is a journal of my activities, journeys and experiences, so I oftentimes write about my independent film advocacies and related stuff, as well as my experiences: a) with people — friends and [quite seldom, foes alike to vent out nega feelings; b] my journey to places through photos, and notes on things that I enjoyed seeing or have learned about; c) plants and animals, especially those that I am “guarding” such as the miracle fruit tree, the calamansi or Philippine lemon, and the Christmas berry plant, others call the money plant; lastly, the pets we are keeping such as Pitz, a hybrid Japanese Spitz / Philippine askal, and Oliver, our supposedly white cat who these days come home always grey after his night fights.
I find myself returning back and forth on the above subjects. Thanks to wordpress photo challenges and daily writing prompts such as this one, they at least gets punctuated, and have a respite. So as not to look that repetitive, I pingback on the already written topic to serve as corroborative notes if I need to refer to the same subject again [As sample, click on the highlighted words above]. Well, probably because like music it is just like humming the same tune…only with some variations.
Like music, I write about experiences that has beginning and must end; about people I say hi’s and goodbyes; dreams and wishes; places and things that marked in my memory; animals and plants that I’ve seen growing and dying. Like music, the mood and melody of what I write about reflects my sentiments and feelings — be they excitement on a blooming calamansi and money plant flowers, sadness on seeing my pets unplayful or sick; upset in not accomplishing a target schedule; sarcasm in meeting narrow-minded, if not egoistic individuals; triumph in finishing a difficult film project that successfully overcome hurdles, etc.
