Parting with Trifina and Danny

Lunch with Trifina
Trifina joined me for a salmon lunch. We are on parallel lives in search of a new beginning. She'll be heading for Vancouver in search of a new life...like myself. It's a global village and I hope we cross paths again...maybe end of the year when she moves to Hong Kong and visits me in the Philippines (if I'm still there).

Dinner with Danny
I went to Lotte, a Korean eat-all-you-can bbq in Scarborough, to meet with Danny. He's going through the same shit as me - one nasty divorce. It seems like he's heading to where I already am. My advice was to prepare himself for an exile since it would inevitably lead him there anywhere. Why fight a bloody war in the trenches when you can drop the bomb and put finality to the struggle? I can't help but think. Here we are, 2 dads who love our kids dearly and both complying to federal guidelines to provide for our kids. However, the system, the way it's setup, is taking us to the cleaners and be forced to seek an economic life outside Canada. The women on their part seem to be oblivious to the obvious: that they are killing the very goose laying the golden egg. Without us, no matter how many legal battles they win, the war will ultimately be lost. And this is one war where nobody wins. Only losers...them...us...and tragically, the innocent kids who will be adversely, and irreversibly affected by all this.

Danny handed a laptop computer as a parting gift. This really goes a long way for a mobile soul like me who'll be on this no-destination journey, having an umbilical cord to the world at large. Most importantly, it can connect me to my kids wherever part of the world I am.
