mGf joepsc has a discerning quote I sighted at another mGf's blog nigh Catsville:
Yan’s Corner - In Touch
Posted by Yan under Soul Tapestry:
1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
It has been a long silence in my blog. I have been through this “A Time for Everything”. Today, in a much better shape and spirit, I describe what I have been through, what I am still going through, and what I am to face for how long that I don’t know - a time for everything.
Yes, the menopausal time. It’s about body, soul and spirit! And how aptly the Searcher gave me insights today."
"Never grow old, never grow old
In the land where we’ll never grow old
Never grow old, never grow old
In the land where we’ll never grow old."

I also pause, now for men.
I pause for myself,
I also pause for some “fRiends”,
I thought I had garduated to counting the Toes.
No, I pause, crossed out some “R”,
And I’m back to counting the F(I)ngers.
I pause often nowadays
Cos humans are born human
They slip, stumble and fall.
I’d be still
also for men

I think it’ll do good to have a pause, all part of nature’s plan for man.
Albert Einstein said “He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.”
Earlier, I had writ:
of all the sound and fury
especially the sound of Walk With Me
We Will Walk and Talk To Me too
We will be angry
We will be enraged
we will show our righteous fury
At the underlings who do not perform
But let's give them another day
Now let's go back to
Plus another 40 winks
just for olde times' sake
Or to live up to our claim to historical fame
Rip van Winkle is my name!
DESIDERATA: Cliche it may be, it's good to occasionally heed the advise: Take time to pause from the hustle-bustle of Life, to SMELL THE ROSES.
Raeding one MSM the past few days consecutively, the headlines have been telling us the Good News --- THE GOOD TIMES ARE BACK AGAIN!
The stock market is on a bull run!
The trade volumn-value has passed the RM1 trillion mark in 2006!
Inflation will be less than 3.00 percent this year!
The Government says so!
ASLI also says so!
Desi pauses and reprises a message from Yesterday, bear with me, okay!:)
"IF whatever is published on the frontpage of the New Straits Times is true, proud Malaysians like me believe IT should signal "prosperous" times ahead for the Year of the Pig.
But trained as a newshound -- Doggone year's still hounding Desi! just eight more days, Doggie, ENJOY w'ile you can still lick IT! -- I sense that reality on the ground doesn't seem to reflect those data -- just as when ASLI's thinktank released its research findings on the Bumiputra equity stakes in the nation's wealth, many would contest such euphoria.
I rely on the feeling on the ground -- that's where the kopitiam and mamak stall economists -- and laymen like Desi -- gather and compare notes.
I also reprise the famous saying, rightly or wrongly attributed to Benjamin Disraeli or Mark Twain: "There are three kinds of lies -- Lies,, damn lies, and statistics."
Yes, ASLI top executives were swift in dissociating (NOT disassociating, I know it's not Sundae's Desiderata.English, but mind-bending can take place any day, Yes?) themselves from its thinktank head DR Lim Teck Ghee's findings recently that the Bumiputra equity stakes in the nation's wealth has far exceeded the 30% target, but it was most swift in endorsing the Government's projection that the inflation figures are hovering at 3%...
DO YOU GUYS BELIEVE IT?
Desi for one, DON'T!
Go to the pertrol pump to top up your tank, the fuel price has gone up not less than four times the past two yaers, followed by a train of prices rising in almost all sectors as TRANSPORT is a key component in all factors of proc=uction of goods and services.
Your noodle at the pasar has gone up from RM2.00 to RM2.50 or a plate of nasi campur has gone up from RM3.50 to RM5.00, and of course, the tolled highway fees, especially on Plus hightways, and those in the Klang Valley have gone up by ..... YOU -- Time's Person Of The Year 2006! -- fill in the blanks)
Once the Rakyat has LOST confidence in the data and statistics given out by the Government and sycop[hantic so-called independent research houses, the country has to resort to their own sources of information.
So do you blame the Rakyat for believing in Raja Petra Kamaruddin's malaysia-today.net more than the MSM. Not that I believe all MT writes, but it's a source of insider information, like all those bigwigs of listed companies use to make a "killing" at the market.
In the curent "bull" run, "You poor retail investors, please Takke the profits NOW before a crash cometh!" -- Desi's 23sen worth of hardearned experienced advice. Give me 30% if it works out wella!
Rumours, especially about the stock market's listed companies' shenanigans! -- often proven to be true after awe! With the passage of TIME.
And TIME has honoured you people -- PERSON OF THE YEAR, 2007 too?
