The Power of The Dream

Sing along...today's song is The power of the dream by Celine Dion. Lagi suka aja ngedengerinnya.

Deep within each heart
There lies a magic spark
That lights the fire of our imagination
And since the dawn of man
The strength of just "I can"
Has brought together people of all nations

There’s nothing ordinary
In the living of each day
There’s a special part
Every one of us will play

Feel the flame forever burn
Teaching lessons we must learn
To bring us closer to the power of the dream
As the world gives us its best
To stand apart from all the rest
It is the power of the dream that brings us here

Your mind will take you far
The rest is just pure heart
You’ll find your fate is all your own creation
Every boy and girl
As they come into this world
They bring the gift of hope and inspiration

Feel the flame forever burn
Teaching lessons we must learn
To bring us closer to the power of the dream
The world unites in hope and peace
We pray that it will always be
It is the power of the dream that brings us here

There’s so much strength in all of us
Every woman child and man
It’s the moment that you think you can’t
You’ll discover that you can

Feel the flame forever burn
Teaching lessons we must learn
To bring us closer to the power of the dream
The world unites in hope and peace
We pray that it will always be
It is the power of the dream that brings us here

Feel the flame forever burn
Teaching lessons we must learn
To bring us closer to the power of the dream
The world unites in hope and peace
We pray that it will always be
It is the power of the dream that brings us here

The power of the dream
The faith in things unseen
The courage to embrace your fear
No matter where you are
To reach for your own star
To realize the power of the dream

Evaluation is...

GOOD CONVERSATION period

When you asked someone as if they are being evaluated, they'd probably trying to put a fake face before you. Somewhat trying to make you happy....
So, conduct a relax conversation instead and let them tell you all things you need to know. And at the same time, get a bonus of things you don't really want to know. He he


That's what our evaluator did these past two days. We chat and tell stories, because he came as a friend. He's still doing his evaluation for he keeps asking questions. All wrapped in a smooth conversation.

Anyway, he's still have that facilitator attitude despite his evaluator role. :)
He's still Om Dani that is wiling to listen. Actively listen and giving us some advice too. *BLINK*

Hub..

Today's Monday.
Holiday...but an extraordinary holiday for us here. Today the word hub is best describe our secretariat. Some of the people are still coming to the office despite the holiday. Because we have an evaluator come to asses our programs.

Ok, back to the word hub. Today our secretariat is a meeting place for quite a lot of people from different place. The evaluator, Dani Wahyu Munggoro comes from Bogor. Bang Berry, our director have just arrived from Bali. And Pak E, our deputy director have just came from his wedding ceremony in his hometown in Trenggalek.

I'm excited as the evaluator is also a master facilitator for me. He is the one introduces the world of facilitation for me. Very nice to meet Om Dani again...:)

Read...Write as well

If the book we are reading does not wake us, as with a fist hammering on our skull, why then do we read?
So that it shall make us happy?
Good God, we should also be happy if we had no books, and such books as make us happy we could, if need be, write ourselves.
But what we must have are those books which come upon us like ill fortune, and distress us deeply, like the death of one we love better than ourselves; like suicide.
A book must be an ice-axe to break the sea frozen inside us.

Franz Kafka (1883 - 1924)

At first, I only love the last part. 'A book must be an ice-axe to break the sea frozen inside us'
In fact, the full paragraph even better...:)

Holistic Health

Cherish every small blessings you got, that's how you'll get content in life. Don't sweat small stuffs, that's to keep your emotion at a balanced state. Keep your mind clear, learn and read everyday. Put on a smile. Live a healthy life by eating more vegetables and doing physical exercise regularly. Try those, and keep your beautiful youth look longer than you've ever imagined because you've got a holistic health.

A person to prove my statement, Chandra Kirana, we all call her Mbak Kiki. She's still slim and beautiful despite her activity as an activist and a mother of four children. She's been involved in environmental organization since she was still in college. She joined a nature lover organization then. And she's been working with Greenpeace too.

Be healthy, holistically. A highlighted point of my conversation tonight with her. And sitting next to her on our dinner, she shared her happiness to me. She showed me pictures she kept in her cell-phone photo gallery...Pictures of all things that made her smile and made me smile too. Should it be the most important thing in her life (her husband and children), of simply a close up of a blossom blue lotus she kept in her garden back home.

Half of the office (maybe more...he he) went dinner with her. And we're having such a great time together. Tomorrow, she'll be the source person for a Focused Group Discussion here in Walhi South Kalimantan. Nice to meet an inspiring woman like Mbak Kiki.
