We live outside the touch of time.

"To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers ans sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets. family griefs and joys. We Live outside the touch of time.

They say that it is an effective way to start writing or speaking in public with a quote or a question. As my little brother celebrates his 42nd birthday tomorrow, I start the celebration with this small gift of a mosaic work which I did for hours. This might be a small one but the pictures and memories that composes the bigger photo embrace stories of love, misunderstanding and forgiveness, hidden secrets, longing and healing.
To Alvin, may you always shine on us. Everyone looks up to you because they know you care a lot, to feel a lot. As your elder one, you are my sustainer and my dependent, my bestest friend and my rival and yes, you are my equal.
I will always love you, Nonong. Happy Birthday my brother.
