rock, orchestra, and death

Finally, here are the photos from last Friday's Rockestra @ the Folk Arts Theater. I just realized that this was the last time I saw Wilfrid too. I only met him a couple of times through common friends. Never watched any of his gigs though. Haven't been really part of the "music circle" for some time now.

When death is experienced, we end up having a lot of realizations about our status in life. Wake up call, if you may call it that.

Life is too short for us to just sit around and wait for things to happen. Let's not waste time.

How to Stay Young:

1) Throw out the non-essential numbers. This includes age, weight, and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.

2) Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down. (keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches)

3) Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain get idle.

4) Enjoy the simple things.

5) Laugh often, long, and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with him/her. (memories, memories.... bingo!)

6) Let the tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on.

7) Surround yourself with what you love.

8) Cherish your health. If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9) Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10) Tell the people you love that you love them, at EVERY opportunity. ( i love you, whoever's reading this...hahaha)

Happy living everyone!
