I am a stranger

I am a stranger
In the land of wonder
I am alone
In the city of Molly Malone

I want to talk with a sparrow
I don't know how
I want to walk on the sky
I don't know why

But Love says :
"Come, let me fetch wine;
we will get drunk on strong drink,
Tomorrow will be just as wonderful as today
And even more so." (Isaiah 56:12).

Many of us, perhaps, have read Bram Stoker’s gothic novel, Dracula or maybe have seen the 1992 film, Dracula, directed by Francis Ford Coppola.

Graffiti in Bristol: Banksy vs Bristol Museum

A few days ago I went to visit a sick person in Elton Road, Bristol. On my way there I noticed some interesting graffiti in Princess Row, Dighton Street, Cheltenham Road, and Picton Street. I thought some of them looked “smile-inspiring”. On the following day then I decided to take my Nikon and take photos of the graffiti there.

Nobody Wins Anything on Their Own

“Nobody wins anything on their own”, said Sir Bobby Robson during his speech when he received the 2007 Lifetime Achievement Award at Sunday’s BBC Sport Personality of the year show in London (9-12-07). In his moving speech he also said, “This award really is an extension and opportunity for me to say thank you very much to everybody that has supported me.”

I want to have 100 children

One evening I was on the 121 bus from Dublin’s city centre to my provincial house in the North side of the city. I was tired and a bit sleepy when suddenly I heard a child saying to her Mum. “Mum… I want to have 16 children!”

Dress Up!

When I was in the secondary school, every afternoon after lunch, we used to go to the road in front of the boarding school and stood there, waiting for the passers by to come. We didn’t stand there for nothing, but we were there to play our small trick. I found it was good fun and of course we didn’t plan to do any dirty tricks that could harm others.
