a penny

A man is talking to God.

The man: "God, how long is a million years?"
God: "To me, it's about a minute."
The man: "God, how much is a million dollars?"
God: "To me it's a penny."
The man: "God, may I have a penny?"
God: "Wait a minute."

My love

My love true My feeling pure,

Since you passed into my life,

Everything within me change,

My eye sees life so wonderful

All my thoughts circled around you,

My heart flames with your love,

Since our eyes met, I saw your face everywhere

How supposed I share my love without you

No one can share me in you,

Maybe I selfish in my love, my passions and my feeling

Because my love to your more than you can imagine

Nothing…

Writing Challenge: Uncountable Nouns

Hi my dear Nafis,

How are you doing recently?

It is a considerable time that I haven't got a chance to be talking to you. So, as I miss you so much, I decided to write this letter only to you.

The weather here is cold, as my heart without seeing you around would be so alone and cold.

A single word, blog, picture, and so on, showing that you are just around, here in our common EC land, gives me so…

A Glass of Milk – Paid In Full

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?” “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied.…

Keep your dream

I have a friend named Monty Roberts who owns a horse ranch in San Ysidro. He has let me use his house to put on fund-raising events to raise money for youth at risk programs.

The last time I was there he introduced me by saying, “I want to tell you why I let Jack use my horse. It all goes back to a story about a young man who was the son of an itinerant horse trainer who would go from stable to stable, race track to race track, farm to farm and ranch to ranch, training horses. As a…

Stages

As you know sometimes different people in different areas have similar ideas and somebody gets the Nobel prize for them and somebody doesn't :-), or as decadence followers say, that no one can create anything new, because all good novels are written, all pictures are painted and so on.

Some of us did really like the history classes at school, but most of us didn't. But have you ever compared the history of our civilization with our own lives? I mean the developement and passing…

Helpless love

Once upon a time all feelings and emotions went to a coastal island for a vacation. According to their nature, each was having a good time. Suddenly, a warning of an impending storm was announced and everyone was advised to evacuate the island.

The announcement caused sudden panic. All rushed to their boats. Even damaged boats were quickly repaired and commissioned for duty.

Yet, Love did not wish to flee quickly. There was so much to do. But as the clouds darkened, Love…
