What went through my mind over the past few days...

First of all, I must clarify myself here. I try not to blog during weekends and public holidays. Sometimes, it is difficult to abstain from doing so especially when certain events or remarks that was reported or made during the weekend really pissed me off.
Last week was exceptional. With all the running around and juggling my time between throwing support for the people and keeping abreast with the pulse of the global financials, I couldn't find time to keep myself updated with all those breaking news. I was like reading news one day late. So much for the TV series 'Early Edition'. Would be nice if this phenomenon does exists in reality and I happened to be the chosen one. Wake up, Whisperer!!
That should explained the lack of ramblings on issues in this blog recently. But we do have many bloggers out there ready to rant and ramble away efficiently the moment an issue was reported. I am just one of them. Maybe different as I viewed life and events from a very different perspective.
Last night, one thought came into my mind: Quit blogging, delete my blog and spend more time walking the street with all the anak bangsa Malaysia out there like what we did for Raja Petra during the course of his sedition trial. My blogger friend pleaded with me to give this a serious thought. "Leave your blog there" she said. "Think it over first," she added. And I did.
I travelled back to the beginning of this journey six months ago. How it all got started and how this blog got it's direction and became what it is today. Nothing great about this blog. The beauty about blogging is that it allows one to open up and push their mind and heart beyond what one thought is possible. It would eventually become part of you. What you write and how you write would somehow gives your character and personality away.
That's just secondary. I could care less. I am who I am and this is what I am. At par. Take it or leave it. Simple as that when it comes to character and personality. We don't have to live up to each other's standard. That is one of my principle. And it is through the course of blogging that I have the opportunity to get to know many great people out there.
And for This very reason, The Whisperer shall lives on...

Hey Whisperer

YAY! I am glad I told you NOT TO GIVE UP last night. And I 'prophesized' oh so correctly that you will be blogging a fantastic post today and voila - indeed I was right!

See - you have it. You see things differently. And needless to say, I would not be blogging if not for that fateful day when I wandered into your blog and chatted with you in Plugoo.

And I would not be where I am if not for your criticisms which have helped me to see blogging for what it is and to always try to be a better writer, better blogger, most of all, a better person!

So don't you dare stop blogging and no more suggestions of me taking over your blog!!! God forbid! You are you, the whisperer who rattles people and I am a mere novice.

Thanks, Whisperer. Thanks for everything. ;)

straight from my heart!

I'm glad you listened to the sound advice.

I too have at times wondered if I should just stop blogging. But before I can even think about it, I'm back on my keyboard and typing away. Blogging is so much part of the way I live now, that even if I were to stop political blogging, I'd still be blogging for the sake of it.

Cheers Whisperer.

Hey, you gave me a start with the beginning of this post.

So much great stuff here. I haven't even begun to read your older blogs yet.

Good thing Paula managed to work her magic on you.

I just dedicated my recent blog to you because you gave me little push to write!

I did and sent it to Malaysia Today and it was published. Phew! what ripples your little joke caused?

You see, how important your staying on means to me and many others!

God bless you!

Dear Whisperer,

Yes, you must live on. Rest if you must but don't quit blogging. I like to dedicate this Verse from Psalms 1:1-3 to you because it closely resembles you.
Your blog (About Me)

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of the sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.

Psalms 1:2
But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.

Psalms 1:3
He is like a tree planted by the streams of water, which yields its fruits in season and whose leaf does not wither.Whatever he does prospers.

Continue to march on because you are an inspiration to me and many more who are nameless and faceless. God do not necessary used big names politicians or any powerful ppl to work. In fact He chooses the meek to see the light. Have a wonderful week ahead.

Your friend
