Father's Day 2011

It's Father's Day again. Greeted hubby and brother. Missed Tatay, wish he was still with us. If I just stop and feel, there's a gamut of emotions that runs through. Too much, too many sometimes. But, why does it seem sadness always come ahead. Unless I push it away. Can't it naturally just give way to happiness without one exerting a lot of effort? I should want to be happy most of the time. There's a lot to be thankful for. But, melancholy is giving happiness a pretty good run of its money. Wish I wasn't the race track. But, complaining as I do, I still prefer feeling instead of being a bystander. So, I guess I should say, "hey, emo, bring it on!"

MassKara Festival, Anyone?

Colors, music, dance, and a touch of mystic? Who would say no to Bacolod's MassKara Festival? Of all Philippine festivities celebrated, this for me, is the closest that depicts every day, human life. From man's simple joys and deepest sorrows, to challenges surmounted and events celebrated, each man and woman dons a mask. That of a noble creature that feels, endures and lives. We are what life makes us. So, live, dance and sing to that intricate, colorful tapestry that is called - life.
