Forgive my promise that you`ll never see me cry


Forgive my promise that I'll send you off with a smile.

This song PERMANENT by David Cook, which I believe he dedicates to his departed brother who succumbed to cancer, kinda hit the bulls eye of what I really felt... and what I still feel when my father and mother left us.

Forgive my promises... 

my broken promises.

When all we know is temporary...

believe in something permanent.

Is this the moment where I look you in the eye?
Forgive my broken promise that you`ll never see me cry
And everything, it will surely change even if 
I tell you I won`t go away today

Will you think that you`re all alone
When no one`s there to hold your hand?
And all you know seems so far away and everything is temporary rest your head
I`m permanent

I know he`s living in hell every single day
And so I ask Oh God is there some way for me to take his place
And when they say it`s all touch and go I wish I could make it go away
But still you say

Will you think that you`re all alone when no one`s there to hold your hand?
When all you know seems so far away and everything is temporary, rest your head
I`m permanent, I`m permanent

Is the moment where i look you in the eye?
Forgive my promise that you`ll never see me cry

City Lights

The city of Hamilton, Bermuda. At night.

As I walk on its main street (Front Street), often John Mayer's song Neon comes to mind. I dunno, but I somehow relate the song with the way I feel as I while away time whether alone or not.

Of course, I always have my camera with me.

I took the photo below aboard a ferry boat from a 'tour' to dockyard.

Cruise ships docked along the bay of Front Street is a common view especially during summer season. 


Kids at Play

I was surprised to find this in my laptop.

I know my kids borrowed this mac a couple of times during my most recent visit to the Philippines. Never thought that they will be this creative.

And now

A Visit to Fort Scaur, Bermuda

Fort Scaur was a big deal for a long time, to the British and to the American military, but it's now a wonderful place to spend an afternoon walk or picnic. There are 22 acres of gardens to see and stroll, and a hefty climb up to the Early Bermuda Weather Stone with its cutesy inscription. 
On a clear day, it provides a view of the entire island of Bermuda, from east to west.

Also known as Scaur Hill Fort, this old historical slice of land was important to the British who, after the American Civil war, feared the US would invade Bermuda. At that time in history, Bermuda was a centrally-
located pivot point of British Colonial power in the New World, and Fort Scaur
 was heavily armed and fortified for this reason. Scaur Hill Fort was the grand master of forts in
 Bermuda, with most of the British fortifying funds in 
the 1800's going into this particular fort. It's situated high up on a hill and was used from 1870 to 
World War II, when American troops from the 52nd Coast Artillery Battalion were stationed there. Back in its early days,
 Fort Scaur was equipped with enormous cannons that were mounted on recoiling platforms. 
The guns are gone now, but visitors can walk along the gallery and look out the windows where the cannons once were housed.
