It is today that marks the first year my husband passed away. I fought a great deal of battle and I am aware that I would still be going through more in the following years to come. I have neglected so many things as I went through the first year without my husband who...
Hi Hal, I can’t remember the last time I wrote you a letter, but it’s devastating that the possibility of you reading this one is questionable. For more than 11 years we have been thorough in making sure that we would always communicate with each other in whatever ways possible. If one of us...
I am numb but it still hurts… I am strong but have no power… I am sane but hallucinating… I am not alone but still lonely… I am walking but have no direction… I am aware but in denial… I am well but still ill… I am composed but so furious… This is the...

On December of this year, my passport is going to expire and it takes three months for you to get a new Philippine passport after renewal. This task is long overdue but I became so preoccupied with other duties that I had to set it aside. Thankfully, my friend Isaac wanted to go to...
