The Unseen Geniuses

unseen genius

1. The Scavengers: Nobody knows how to make a living out of human waste more adeptly. Why shouldn’t we learn solid waste management by simply watching them?

2. The Children: Nobody in this world posts such unsolvable questions than children. Why shouldn’t we learn to be inquisitive from these little angels?

3. The Aetas: Nobody knows the importance of walking to conserve energy and reduce carbon emission better. Why should not we appreciate the beauty of walking  to  save our pockets and our natural resources from running dry?

4. The Insane: Nobody knows freedom in a more advantageous way. They are even  more cultivated than Sartre in knowing what freedom is. Why shouldn’t we learn that joy can be found even in the most trivial things?


P.S. Are not they part of this beautiful world, too?

    awwwww… this is so touching. 🙂

    naalala ko tuloy when i was in college, i had a paper about the aetas.. so we traveled to pampanga tapos we mingled with the aetas.. ang galing.. simple life, madaming kulang.. but they’re happy about life. 🙂

    just timing!
    in our building, two days ago a lady of 40’s jumped out of 8th floor and died. Suicide case. She got everything she still got nothing.
    In phils many survive without food and money, and still happy like the kids in photos!

      that is very true Maam. it was very brilliant of you to notice that. although i havent experienced a life abroad, i still know that in some way, Filipino are simpler yet creative in finding means to live. 🙂

      thanks for dropping by again Maam.

    You should know these things… part of you is a child, and part of you is insane. hahaha =P

    Kidding aside, this blog entry shows that insights do not have to be written in long articles in order to be deep.

      hahaha…i don’t think that exempts you. just how could you explain someone oblivious of everything, including her music students, all for the thought of a mole? hahaha 🙂

      • June 12, 2009 at 11:19 pm

        Hahahahaha… see? You’re insane. =P But you are very well aware that it was no ordinary mole. Twas one worthy of utmost attention. You can’t blame me. heehee =)

    I didn’t know Meewa had a thing for moles. 🙂 Or maybe just a particular mole’s owner?

    Short but profound. Thank you!!
