Years ago, before I went to Philippines first time, I wanted to learn a little from home, just to show my respect.
I was going to Cebu. I searched the net. Filipino, Tagalog, Cebuano, Bisaya, Binisaya were some of the words popping up. It was very confusing.
Today, I know better. Cebuano (in Englis... Read more of this blog post »

Dulce Et Decorum Est
by Wilfred Owen

Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
Knocked-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,
Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs
And towards our distant rest began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots
But limped on, blood-sh... Read more of this blog post »

Like the six blind men of Hindustan,
Who went to see the elephant,
All could be partly right,
Yet all are wholly wrong.

Yet men will fight.
Jerusalem wept over,
Is the epitome of religious strife.
A church here, a mosque behind,
A synagogue in the rear,
As if to say, I am the best.

I'd say it's my most professional cover to date, but I was lucky enough to find a great photo and photographer to work with. His name is Michael Sapienza.
