This is a post I wrote in 2016, and it is just as pertinent now. Hatred Will Never Let You Face the Beast in Man Lisa Ernst Buddha taught us that we must cultivate compassion for all beings, without exception. This doesn’t mean that we stand by passively while people trample over us, compassion isn’t […]

I was silent then and got few friends. Some kind of typical girl who sleep, wake up, eat and sleep again. I was a 9th grader when I fell in love. I did the effort, I even gave him answers on exam, did his school projects, watched him over and over, look at him secretly […]
When everything’s awful and you’re lost,
Close your eyes and see the cost.

Memories of Sylvia Plath’s iconic poem, “Full Fathom Five” still return to me–many years after purchasing a copy of her aptly-titled collection of poems, “Colossus” in my college years in Quezon City, Philippines. Tying-in the expression, “The Full Fathoms” and the very last line in the poem, “I would breathe water” took some deliberation. Was […]
Ideal for watercolors, but also works with acrylics or oil paints, I bought some new pads of paper to continue experimenting with my abstract art and to continue to hone my skills.
