Pages out of (my) Diary

I draw what I couldn't put into words.

Ah, decisions. I hate making them. :|
Solved. See: Found JNDI
...turned out OK.
It was.
Re: Bicol Trip. I am sooo excited. Salt and sand again. Yay!
My office PC (running on Windows 2k) succumbed to BSOD. Thankfully. It's now running on XP. My files got corrupted though, but no big deal.
Another self-portrait.
Somebody is.
The problem with talking with codes is that some days later, you have no idea what you were talking about. In my case, that is.
Too much drama.
Maybe I got 'em, maybe I didn't.

All pics are taken with my trusty cellphone cam, then edited (brightness, contrast) with Gimp

Sand and Salt

There was salt on my skin
and sand on my hair.

One weekend at Hundred Islands, Pangasinan.

Bukas Kaya?

Walang Alam

Di siya marunong lumangoy
--wala namang ilog na mapagpapraktisan.
Di siya marunong umakyat ng puno
--wala namang punong matutuntungan.
Di siya marunong gumaya ng huni ng ibon
--wala na rin kasing ibong napapakinggan.

Ni hindi niya nga alam
       kung ano ang tarsier, o tamaraw, o pilandok--
naubos na ng walang pakundangan
at kahit na may maipakita akong larawan,
ano naman ang larawan sa batang walang nakita, naranasan
--kaya walang alam?
Kawawa naman ang anak ko.

The Pessimist

i am in the middle of spring.
gentle breeze
fruitful trees
flowers a-bloom.

and yet
while i should be a-twirlin'
laughing with the wind
and letting the sun
dry the dew off my hair--

i sit among the grass
itchy and scared
my eyes upon the sky
for the sign of storm
and a hint of a cloud rain.

i am in the middle of spring.
i should be celebrating.
