Once there were green fields,
Kissed by the sun.
Once there were valleys,
Where rivers used to run.
Once there were blue skies,
With white clouds high above.
once they were part of,
An everlasting love.
We were the lovers who,
Strolled through Green Fields.

Green fields are gone now,
Parched by the sun.
Gone from the valleys,
Where rivers used to run.
Gone with the cold wind,
That swept into my heart.
Gone with the lovers,
Who let their dreams depart.

Where are the green fields,
That we used to roam?

I’ll never know what,
Made you run away.
How can I keep searching
When dark clouds hide the day..

I only know there’s,
Nothing here for me.
Nothing in this wide world,
Left for me to see.

Still I’ll keep on waiting,
Until you return.
I’ll keep on waiting,
Until the day you learn.
You can’t be happy,
While your heart’s on the roam,
You can’t be happy
Until You bring it home.
Home to the green fields
And me once again.

Happened to listen to this folk song for first time today. You could have liked this song as well, if you’re one of those rare oldies lover left.

Liked the melody. The lyric sounds like a loner though. Somehow it makes me feel good when I’m listening to it, partly I’m not a loner (everyone and everything I need is in front of me) and partly the sweet, sad melody. Reminds of good old time.

Saint Paul – The Pauline Year

Prayer to the Apostle Paul

Glorious St Paul,
Most zealous Apostle,
Martyr for the love of Christ,
Give us a deep faith,
A steadfast hope,
A burning love for our Lord;
So that we can proclaim with you,
“It is no longer I who live, but Christ
who lives in me.”
Help us to become apostles
Serving the Church with a pure heart,
Witnesses to her truth and beauty
Amidst the darkness of our days.
With you we praise God, our Father:
“To Him be the glory, in the Church and in
Christ, now and forever.”

The Pauline year, starting June 28, 2008 to June 29, 2009, is a special year dedicated for the celebration of the birth of the Apostle Paul.

Who is Saint Paul? Why is he special? What were his contributions to the church?

Madagascar 2

Cloudy, hot and humid night. It was rare to have such a weather in November’s night few decades ago.

Roads were clogged with cars, all circling around like vultures looking for carcass. Glad I was early ‘coz it was more crowded than I thought of. After making two and a half round, I manage to find an empty slot. A rare night indeed. Met few colleagues, ex colleagues and a former classmate.

As usual, my standard of procedure states that a nice movie worth to be watched more than once. I think that explains why I decided to have a peek on the movie before have another helping with my friend. The funny fact is that there’s always new discoveries in the second round, either a missed punch line or a missed scene.

Madagascar 2… it gives me back the feel I had when I watched Lion King during my younger day. Still miss the nice good cartoon. Its all about friendship, family, bits of romance among the characters.

Fun, adorable, engaging and at times touching, the movie is impressively designed to make both the young and adult to laugh at the same time and all the time. And you won’t be able to find any more psychotic penguins. And the old lady, too!

Like most animation, Madagascar 2 ended with a lived-happily-ever-after. Yes, life is enough of adversities and misadventures, I won’t want nor need them here, in my hideout.

This’ one of those movie I describe as value to watch. That’s for me, personally, of course. You may have different taste. Least you’ll learn that monkeys, at all, are not a good messenger and love can sparks between a giraffe and a hippo.
