I have been sifting through year-ender posts, most of which follow the same template or thematic. It might sound offensive (like I’m hating on people) but most of them sound like this: “My most challenging year thus far. 2014 taught me SO MUCH. It was a year of ups and downs, of challenges and changes, of endings … Continue reading Stop, Start, Begin Again.
My heart is full. Creating this video was quite the journey. There were a lot of stops, gaps and pauses. But we're here today, and I am grateful to the generous people who made this possible. I'd like to share snippets of that journey with you. Happy Happy Easter from our family to yours. 🙂 … Continue reading Best Man
The heart has a way of healing and the mind, a way of detaching. Detaching in the sense that it cushions the blow and cocoons you until you are ready. Ready to face reality. Ready to respond to the outside world of both genuine souls and insensitive pricks. This feeling comes in waves, without pattern … Continue reading Heart of Gold
You know nothing of my journey. Not a clue, not a glimpse, not an inch. And since you don't, don't ask me questions. Don't pretend to understand. Don't feign concern. Just don't. Your words infuriate me but it's your ignorance (your gall...to say people who didn't make it should relax and try not to kill … Continue reading One Day
Broken. Clipped. Once again, I am on my knees and scrambling for answers. But find none. What else is there to say? To do? To mourn? To pray?

There’s no denying that 2013 brought me to my knees. But it would be unfair to … Continue reading Play by Play
I'm making a comeback. 😉 Let's rock and roll this November. See you at the RCBC theater!
There's nothing like watching your best friend getting married, getting pregnant and becoming a mother---all in one year. Much like witnessing a bud in full bloom, seeing Cy's transformation (from care bear to mother bear?) was both surreal and inspiring. Dear Cy, I remember crying to you at Mom and Tina's because of my insecurity and … Continue reading Marcelo Makes 3
I’m racking my brains. At work. For a benefit concert. To raise funds for the brain foundation. Brain. Not. Functioning. Typing, deleting, typing, deleting. What do I say in this letter? How do I even start writing about this? Do I cut to the chase, go for the jugular and ask for money? I’m kidding. … Continue reading MIND OVER MATTER
To my dearest bodyguard and agent, I know you get an email alert everytime I post something on my blog. I know you love me that much. Hehe. Kidding aside, I know that it's your way of always checking up on me, and knowing if you need to throw a life vest in my direction. … Continue reading The Bodyguard
