There are underlying reasons why everybody acts as they do. The collection of life experiences become the building blocks for the decisions that they make. So the next time someone does something strange, crazy or wonderful, take a moment and consider what is deep within them to drive that reaction.

Photo by me, of me, at the Singapore Science Center



There are fundamental reasons

why some things just delight,

like waterfalls of rain

on weather lighted nights.


Memories of laughter

with tears of silly joy.

Anonymous donations

and trying to be coy.


A child who is learning,

a pet with loyal ties,

flowers for no reason,

and rainbow sunlit skies.


Each of us is different,

and building blocks within

expect diverse replies

for our smiles and our grins.


The fundamental reasons

for the choices that we make

are influenced by love and guilt

and times of give and take.

Intriguing photograph! Fascinating insight as to what makes people think and behave as they do. A little understanding goes a long way and this you point out very delicately......

Be always safe,

i attempt to teach my students that there are reasons behind all that we do--it is a difficult concept--we tend to go through life so unaware
