Far Out But Not Lost

“You seem lost.” 

M2 gazed at me as she left for the gym.

I stared back at her, “bye.”  And then I thought to myself.

Am I?

 

“She makes my stomach happy.”

My father said so while eating Chinese dumplings and a steamed bun.

I packed in Japanese soft cake too that looked more like a donut to me.

He absolutely delighted himself with the goodies I sent him.

 

“Don’t forget to viber me the next time you eat out with Lolo.”

Lolo means grandfather in Filipino.

My eight-year-old nephew who loves to eat reminded me today.

He’s quite an adorable kid actually.

 

“Something will happen for you too.  I believe it.”

This was a really nice message a friend sent me this morning.

It raised my hopes and made my day.

Life is a maze alright but I am not lost.
