In 2004, Paul Haggis produced and directed the film Crash which is mainly about racial and social tensions in Los Angeles, CA. The film is also about how the lives of the characters in the film interweave with one another because of certain events that take place in their lives. I mention this film because sometimes you have to take a step back and wonder, what does it all mean?

Many times we cross paths with certain people in our lives and don’t realize how the connection we just made has a deeper meaning than what we see in front of us. On the surface it just seems as if we’ve met someone new and have common interests. If not that, sometimes it may just seem as if we’ve cross paths with someone because of a certain event, experience or circumstance. But what if we all played a small but key role in some stranger’s life before we even met them in the flesh and don’t know it? If we could all sit back and watch a movie called “My Life” I’m sure each and every one of us would be pleasantly surprised to see how the connections we made with certain people in our lives was already written and had deeper meanings to them than what we initially thought.

Personally speaking, I think about all the relationships in my life, current and past, friendships, partnerships, business connections, casual connections and romantic relationships and I always think about how did it start and why. I think about the significant role each person either played or is still playing in my life. I also wonder what does it mean for my future.

Devastation in the Philippines….Typhoon Haiyan

Typhoon Haiyan leaves 1,774 people in the Philippines dead as of right now. This number could increase as the days go by and more clean up efforts are being executed after this devastating storm.

What is a typhoon? A typhoon is a mature tropical cyclone that develops in the western part of the Pacific Ocean between 180° and 100°E. The majority of storms form between June and November whilst tropical cyclone formation is at a minimum between December and May. On average, the northwestern Pacific features the most numerous and intense tropical cyclones globally. Like other basins, they are steered by the subtropical ridge towards the west or northwest, with some systems recurving near and east of Japan. The Philippines receive a brunt of the landfalls, with China and Japan being impacted slightly less. Some of the deadliest typhoons in history have struck China. Southern China has the longest record of typhoon impacts for the region, with a thousand year sample via documents within their archives. Taiwan has received the wettest known typhoon on record for the northwest Pacific tropical cyclone basin. (Wikipedia)

Typhoon Haiyan has already killed over a thousand people with many more thousands displaced, waiting for aid and searching for food and water just to stay alive and survive. Many people in the Philippines have lost parents, children, spouses, relatives and friends during this massive disaster that hit the northwest Pacific basin. Our hearts and prayers are with those in this region of the world and for more detailed information visit http://www.cnn.com or http://www.nytimes.com.
