A cozy-looking bookshelf that’s perfect for condo-dwelling bookworms who do not have a lot of space to spare. Called The Bookworm, I think it does not look too bad in terms of aesthetics. It could use some more cushions to make that nook more comfy.
On a totally different note, it also makes me think of hamsters running non-stop!
What do you think?

Digital Hobo Trash
Taking the trash out is one of my least favorite chores. Of course, Pepper Potts’s line about occasionally taking out the trash for Tony Stark made me chuckle. Not that I would ever want my Tony Stark to have trash of that kind!
This t-shirt is pretty cool, though, especially for Digital Hobo. You can get it at GlennZ Tees for $21.95. They have tees both for men and women in various sizes.
We Can Be Heroes
This is the best poster I have seen this week. No, this month. I find the Justice League impressive enough as it is, but this rendition makes them look even more so. Mesmerizing is the word that came to mind when I first laid my eyes on the poster, and after minutes of gazing at it, I was even more convinced of how gorgeous they artist made the superheroes look.
The poster was made for a campaign called We Can Be Heroes, where DC partnered up with several charities working to fight hunger in the Horn of Africa. The charities involved are Save the Children, International Rescue Committee, and Mercy Corps.

It seems like eons ago when I first read the book titled “The Case for Christ” by Lee Strobel. A journalist by profession, Strobel used to be full of unbelief when it came to the cornerstone of Christianity. In his quest to discredit Jesus Christ, Strobel was converted.
Obviously, if you are a Christian, you will enjoy reading the book and find yourself agreeing with what the author professes. To be honest, though, I remember this particular Christian still thinking from the perspective of a cynic. I remember thinking that if I were not a Christian, I still might have had my doubts. That is not to say that the book isn’t all that convincing. If anything, my side thoughts are proof that one cannot be convinced about faith unless there is a personal encounter.
And speaking of personal encounters… Continue reading
Feeling low? Let the guys at Burning Man give you a lift with their rendition of Dr. Seuss’s “Oh, the Places You’ll Go”. I think this is the first time I cried over this children’s story.

I can very well imagine Po saying this!
Everyone seems to fancy himself a photographer these days. Once in a while, though, you see work that stops you in your tracks. That’s what happened to me when I saw the work of photographer Markus Reugels, who spent countless hours setting up his subject/s. With drops of water, a map, and a globe (and maybe some other props), he was able to create awesome pictures that make it seem like you can see the world in a single drop of water.
Isn’t that sheer beauty captured?

Now I don’t know if this is really from Jim Carrey, but the message strikes hard and deep. Oh, that we learn to live in the moment!
We all have to let go of something or someone at some point in our lives. In fact, I have come to realize that letting go can be described as a regular activity. When we were young, we might have had to let go of a pet. I remember going through this process when our dogs died (not all at the same time, thank God). I may not have thought of it as letting go back then, but it is what it is.
Sometimes, letting go is all about material things. Kids lose toys or break them. There is a kind of letting go in that process.
As teenagers, we let go of relationships – both the platonic and romantic kind. As young adults and young professionals, we might have had to let go of dreams: a promotion, a job that we’ve always wanted, partners, and so on.
Letting go is part of life. There is no going around it. Continue reading
This has got to be one of my new favorite quotes. I used to be a person full of fear, which I thought I had overcome. I guess to a certain degree, I did overcome many of my fears.
Once again I find myself at a stage where I face the need for courage. There are days when it comes a-roaring like the a Mack truck at full speed. There are, however, many days when courage seems to slink around like a hunter stalking its prey. Today, courage just seemed to give up on me.
Then as I lay in bed looking back at the events of the day, this quote came back to me. I think that’s courage whispering in my ear, telling me that tomorrow is another day. I hope it comes to you when you need it most as well.
