may god bless and keep you always,
may your wishes all come true,
may you always do for others
and let others do for you.

may you build a ladder to the stars
and climb on every rung,
may you stay forever young.

may you grow up to be righteous
may you grow up to be true,
may you always know the truth
and see the lights surrounding you.

may you always be courageous,
stand upright and be strong,
may you stay forever young.

may your hands always be busy,
may your feet always be swift,
may you have a strong foundation
when the winds of changes shift.

may your heart always be joyful,
may your song always be sung,
may you stay forever young...

(one of my favourite lyrics by bob)

parahyangan valley

this is a scenery from the train window, yesterday's trip from bandung to jakarta.

green paddy fields on the rolling hills of vertile java island.

emily dickinson's "a light exists on spring" accompanied me along the way.
