living the ‘balictad’ way of life

Posted: January 31, 2012 in Uncategorized

The word ‘balictad’ in the Binisaya dialect of the southern Philippines means ‘ to do things the wrong way’……’to go about doing things backwards… reverse order’.  Colloquially it is a term of endearment for someone who doesn’t seem to have their lives going in the right direction . I have to admit to living in a state of’  ‘balictad’   for years without any permanent scar tissue precluding my generally positive attitude. What is normal anyway? Do your thing baby…whatever it is. Live your dream, seek your passion in life, live with creativity , imagination and love.

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.
