A selected collection of SMS over the years documented before it fades from the surge of modern and ever changing means of communication.

Random and Unfathom

"More than kisses,
letters mingle souls
-John Donn

The following mobille Short Message Service (SMS) were painstakingly collected the last 10years and was fortunate enough to have survived from the test of ever changing phone models including platform. They are are personal at times commercially created and forwarded but most of the times were random and unfathom treasures specially when one remembers the event that conspired them to reach and touch my soul.

From Ayet a Half Brother
Things to do to get away from trouble this New Year:
1. Don't pick up something that was already fired upon
2. withdraw your gun become it comes
3. if already fired, try washing it immediately -sometimes it works,
4. don't shoot in public-its embarrassing:
5. Never hesitate to ask if it's ”safe” before you shoot,
If its ”safe” shoot at will!

My own message: to Mama Joy on her birthday:
Dec 15 2008
Ma, I wish you a very Happy Birthday
Hope you'll have a great day today how ever grand or modest it will be
If I can have my say
I'll make it memorable as I can for the reason I need not say
But alas, all I can do is pray
That God looks after you in His own way
As for your special day today
I wish in good health and spirit you'll stay
.as my mentor, adviser, true friend and a mother!

-Mama Joy continued:

Nov 22
It is not what we eat but what we say that defiles us; Not what we gain but what we share that makes us rich: Not what we rwead but what we remember that makes us learned; and NOT what we profess but what we practice that gives integrity. God Bless!

I haven't got an answer either the moderators are busy or not informed as must be a glitch because my other and latest star earner article can be found on its correct categories. It's quite dissapointng that our little creation like this, is not reaching enough readers or exposure it deserves while dozen of others hug the pages for queer priveledge and technical good fortunes.

I too treasure text messages...and tend to keep them on my phone forever....once I just must make room -and finally delete them- they remain in my heart...each one a moment in time ,the everyday of life shared...

Thank you Delicia, saving messages was an accidental thing because way back I dont have a smart phone with huge memory not to delete this daily gems. I even lost several phones sometimes as much as 4 phones a year! One time i was upgrading a phone and transferred the sim and noticed old messages are still on it. So there with the help of my PC and emails I was able to archive most of these. =)

SaigonDeManila had to come back to add as much as this morden means of communicating adds to our daily life- the lost art of letter writing or even taking time- to let those we do not keep in touch with everyday understand, they too -still remain in our hearts...much needed thoughts to ponder in this fast moving , ever changing world...

Very true Delicia, though the language is quite evolving adapting to the limitiation and the pace that basically makes a subversion of the English language to the point of incomprehensibility gives birth to mobile /internet language due to SMS leads to abbreviate words for the sake of ease and adherence to the character limit of text messages. Still, the effort is quite a revival of flourish personal commnication in lieu of formal letter writing and or the hallmark cards we had in our generation.
