Pushing it Right

i had to push myself. it's a saturday, you have to 'rest', as in do nothing cerebral. but all i need was a push. silence that irrelevant voice. to just open the laptop, Microsoft Word, and pray, that the PC will not turn off abruptly, as it has been doing, sometimes more than once on start-up, during the holiday break.

and so i did. worked. while serving Yaman two slices of homemade pizza, eating corn while talking with mother and sister, occasionally checking phone messages and games, browsing, and paying phone bills online.

and so i was able to transition to how responsible the urban poor, as a 'sector' was on pushing a solid tenure agenda in the early 1990s here in naga. and now, i'm working on tripartism already. yes, all, because i pushed, on the right direction.

so keep on pushing the right things, the right thoughts, and the right mindset.
