  • Dying by Paul Cuenco 1/12/2012 9:20:18 PM
    A man standing across from where I was seated seemed to be waiting. I worked in a bank many years ago and I was a New Accounts person. I had no customer at that time. But this man seemed to stand there for a long time. Perhaps, he was asleep. He... more

  • Marriages and Such by Paul Cuenco 1/9/2012 11:18:16 AM
    It was funny what my neighbor at the Portland Home Show said. They were in the Las Vegas Venetian Hotel when he proposed. It was awkward to propose in the first place because they were both strapped to the gondola; that if he knelt on one knee, the... more

  • Clark and a whole of other things by Paul Cuenco 1/6/2012 10:17:35 PM
    Clark was enjoying today, with his good dog, a boxer with fine fur and pouty mouth. He asked me, “How am I doing?” and I answered that I’m alright. I also ask him how he was doing. He said that Patrick, his roommate for so many years, had left. I... more

    It was like déjà vu, I woke up almost late, again. AGAIN! I thought that I could wake up late, about eightish am. But I woke up at about 9:15 am. There was a history to all of these. I spent time at Greater Trumps late into the night, pa... more

  • At my Starbucks by Paul Cuenco 1/4/2012 10:07:22 PM
    I’m here right now, at the same Starbucks I’ve hung around in for the past two and a half years. This was the time when I lost my job and the U.S. economy had plunged to near depression. I remember that time when I awoke one time when I could not w... more

    It was 10:15 pm and I’m late for the New Year’s Eve party at Greater Trumps. I see people dancing and the crowd seemed to be in anticipation of the New Year. I found parking quite a ways of. So as I approach the bar, the music was blaring while my... more

  • A Day with my Nieces by Paul Cuenco 1/1/2012 3:38:40 PM
    It was glorious, that day with Lauren and Taylor. The old campus of the University of San Francisco was a welcome sight. The nostalgia came back for I have not visited the campus for years. The cathedral (or church, it was too big for it to be a c... more

  • To Live and Enjoy Life by Paul Cuenco 12/29/2011 2:58:32 PM
    My systolic was 174. My diastolic was 110. My sister who suffered a stroke last week and was confined to a hospital for four days said, “Those were the numbers when I suffered a stroke. What can I say but I said that “it’s probably because I have j... more

    It was twilight when the train left Hamburg for Copenhagen, although by the time we crossed the Kiel Canal, remnants of the sun still linger. I wonder if I should visit a fiord up north than head east to Copenhagen. But then, when we reached Koldin... more

  • Trivia Night by Paul Cuenco 12/20/2011 10:41:38 PM
    It was Trivia Night at Greater Trumps, a game of know-it-all, of things inconsequential but consequential. The first question was, “What was Time magazine naming the People of the Year?” I don’t know what the answer was. Neither did Janice. My te... more
