and inspiring conversations
from mentors such as Fr. Ted Gonzales SJ,
treasured in the deep recesses of my heart
such as the Walled City of Intramuros in Manila....
about patience while witnessing the fortitude of ordinary
people waiting for jeepneys and vehicles to carry them home;
... and for those enjoyable times with colleagues and friends
and for the time I played the role of a kick-ass leader of
the Philippine revolution;
...for the opportunity to pass by old familiar places from
my childhood, such as Luneta where a giant flagpole a
and the "photobomber" building now hovers with every
photograph taken of the Rizal monument...
Christmas songs free over Spotify and Youtube,
to sing these songs, such as my favorite Adeste
Fidelis. at the Christmas eve mass at the Church of the
Gesu, to laugh at the JEDI jokes of Fr. Jett Villarin, SJ
and reflect on the challenges he presented to ordinary
individuals carrying heavy loads in their life...
