Trust as well as issues pertaining to faith tend to be private
matters which are seldom discussed in public.
My greatest lesson on faith and Trust did not come from the
usual source such as a house of worship as most people
would expect but from my elementary school teacher with
whom I maintained regular contact.
His name is Raphael.
Raphael and I developed a close bond when he taught me in
elementary school. A bond which continued throughout
my life. We call to check on each other as often as possible.
It had been a while since I talked to Raphael because I was
traveling quite a bit on business matters.
Raphael knew when I was due back in town so he called me
three days after I arrived back home.
“What’s up traveler?” he began.
“What’s up?” I responded. I was not even going to scold him
for calling me ‘traveler’.
I talked to him previously about calling me ‘chaos’. A
name he gave me when I was in elementary school due to
my unusually high affinity for accidents.
He is definitely deep, intelligent and smart so if he still
chooses to call me ‘traveler’ instead of Yin which is my
name, let sleeping dogs lie, I thought to myself.
“How is business at CodWin going?” he asked.
“So so,” I replied. “Too many things that will baffle even a
cyclone,” I continued.
