oxpicious niu jahr, ja?

thanks, naxos moorani

my, my
keong hee huat chye
bu lui, ang-pow bu lai

today marks chinese new year of the ox
we hope it portends bullishness, a year that rocks

to kick it off, taipan laid out 9-dish feast
thanks jk to capture shot
enough to last us awhile at least
enough to scare away the gloom beast

also yesterday
i treated myself to somerset maugham “the circle” play

thanks to judy, i discovered petite pear theater in mountain view
and tugging “of human bondage” movie dew
maugham’s fms (federated malay states) reference in play jogged the cue

things do come full circle
in life’s theatrical
mother lady kitty deserting hubby and arnold child
to run off with lord porteous, love-intoxicated, free and wild
after 30 years, kitty shows up in arnold’s life
and behold, thinking of eloping with lover ed luton is elizabeth, arnold’s wife
ed luton, a bloke running a plantation in “federated malay states” fms
happened to be visiting arnold and elizabeth on furlough, his love to profess
to run off with him to malaysia, his lover to test with zest

maugham hinting how women deal with suppression
lulled into marriage to survive and trapped from true love expression
so life regresses as it progresses?
a circular karmic logic indeed the play professes

strains of harry chapin folk song
a singing memory strong

all my life’s a circle
sunrise and sundown
moon rolls through the nighttime
till daybreak comes around

all my life’s a circle
still i wonder why
seasons spinning ’round again
years keep rolling by

bringing me full circle to revelation 1:8
I am the Alpha and the Omega,
who is, and who was, and who is to come,
the Almighty

and in revelation 22:13
I am Alpha and Omega,
the beginning and the end,
the first and the last.

fulfilling prophecy in isaiah 44:6
I am the first and the last

Alpha and Omega
are the first and last letters of the greek alphabet
signifying that God is
“the beginning and the end,” or eternal.

hmm, is ramrom making a square out of divine pearl?

bbb or not2b

2009 beginnings of sorts
amid stock market spurts, sputters and aborts
so it seems
a new era of constructive change and responsibility begins
44th president imploring us to unrelenting get-going
the arduous and perilous work of america re-making
an end to greed, waste and overconsumption
get back to biz of restoration

our nation at war is costing us a pretty penny
our badly-weakened economy
our woeful account of greed and irresponsibility of few at expense of many
our collective failure to make hard choices, complacency cluttered
our savings and homes lost, jobs shed, businesses shuttered
our health care is too costly
our schools fail too many
our ways of using energy fueling supplier strength and weakening the land of milk and honey

we don’t know what we have till we lose it
we destroy or build when we have nothing to lose, when bottom we hit
for sure nothing happens if we just sit
our sins to confess and admit

come jan26 we enter 2009 lunar year of the ox
i figured obama born in 1961 turning 48 august 4th 2009 must be a bull to help us detox
mahatma gandhi once uttered “we must become the change we want to see”
whether obama can lead us to execute that change began yesterday, from sea to shining sea
are we ready to be all we can be
in the new u.s. renaissance army?

bullish or bull or becoming?
to be or not to be, that is the question timelessly a-beckoning

in God we trust
forget not 1956 act of congress we must
for in luke 17:21, “the kingdom of God is within you”
“for the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power” 1 corinthians 4:20 cue
“for the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit” in Romans 14:17 pew

ramrom ends with a benjamin franklin ramble

“if u would not be forgotten,
as soon as u are dead and rotten,
either write things worth reading,
or do things worth the writing.”

so bullish or bull or becoming? a bbb or not2b gamble?

what a week
despite a sudden back crick
yahoogroup and linkedin community building tricks to lick
chicago musical, cantor arts and chico social uptick

thanks paul to share
robin mckenzie’s “treat your own back”, how back2care
lord lordosis, the inward curve in lower back to protect and spare
i found out jan13 if u lose lordosis, spasm attacks
slouching posture and sitting too long yielded crippling smacks
thanks to literal “backsupport” divine hotline appealed
lordosis is restored and healed

and what a pilot chelsey spectacle
hope rekindled, what refreshing miracle
plane winding up safely on the hudson
us airways with count of 155-person
on flight 1549
all alive and fine
hmm…mere birds bringing down man-made bird
humbling squeals of last resort to the Supernatural One were heard
a different kind of lordosis to lord one’s destiny spurt

apropos reflection wrapping up the week today
pbcc bernand bell’s revealing genesis 3:8-13 part 2 of eden play
the first sin passed down, first act of wrong choice
vs today’s sermon on “hearing God’s voice”

in eden began human inclination to succumb to serpent
eyes opened to good and evil, a perilous descent
losing lordosis vital dent
now we have to choose the right bent
for a life well-spent
or to choose slouch
be a crouching grouch
or choose His love to vouch

in-a-gadda-da-vida, honey,
don’t u know that I love u?
in-a-gadda-da-vida, baby,
don’t u know that I’ll always be true?

o, won’t u come with me
and take my hand?
please take My hand!

but now

started 2009 with a bang
let’s stage a surprise potluck4taipan clang
pulled it off with help of friends and family
to jumpstart our year with glee

with upcoming obama inaugural address
a pbcc 2009 inaugural sermon bell rang, a dent in ramrom impress
in particular was how bernard  “but now” biblical verses together press
how the jews were once God’s chosen people, but now via Christ’s redemption
gentiles once excluded are but now under His inclusion

an extrapolated ramrom conjecture
things of past shaped the “but now” present which will in turn shape the future
yes, dream of the future taught by the past
but now, do something that matters for time may not last
for future to blast

strains of seals and croft
in my mind aloft
“so – i wanna laugh while the laughin’ is easy
i wanna cry when it makes it worthwhile
we may never pass this way again….”
mingled with yoko ono strain
“yesterday may haunt us forever
today may pass in fear
tomorrow may never come”

end times stanza
what’s it with gaza?
satyam ceo making 1 billion dollar cash entry
cfo contemplating suicide, what other cookies and rookies in the pantry
it’s all fake
your confidence to shake
the world is doomed
but now, with price paid on the cross, eternal hope for all has bloomed

neapolitan writer-engineer luciano de crescenzo’s quote to ring
“we are each of us angels with only one wing,
and we can only fly by embracing one another”  ding ding ding

so let sea of humanity reach out and embrace each other
instead of violence, greed, misunderstandings and lies to smother
for tomorrow may never come for all we know
but now, all of us have access to the Father through Christ by one Spirit, we can love sow

ephesians 2:12-13
remember that at that time u were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in israel
and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.
but now in Christ Jesus u who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

colossians 1:21-22
once u were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior
but now He has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present u holy in His sight,
without blemish and free from accusation

1 peter 2:10
once u were not a people, but now u are the people of God;
once u had not received mercy, but now u have received mercy.

1 peter 2:15-17 give us cornerstone to anchor upon for the but-now-today
or it is God’s will that by doing good u should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men.
live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil;
live as servants of God.
show proper respect to everyone:
love the brotherhood of believers,
fear God….

(but) now, i found, that the world is round
and of course it rains everyday.

living tomorrow,
where in the world will i be, tomorrow?
how far out am i able to see?
or am i needed here?

if  i remember all of the things i have done,
i’d remember all of the times i’ve gone wrong.
why do they keep me here?
