The everyday vendor who does not only sell fruit but also offers the strength of her spirit. Respect.
Manang came by everyday to offer some fruits. I always buy from her - bananas, oranges, apples. Each time, we talked about the usual happenings in the market and those she encountered along the street where she passed by. She refused to sit down to have coffee with me. She had to go and get about selling door to door to finish the day with a good collection.

Women and children telling strories
and having fun
It is better to see them this way..
than see them knocking on car windows
with eyes blank, hands outstretched,
and sadness etched on their faces.
Transported to beg
They learned their trade
Emote for coins, or better, bills
I gave out a new bought sandwich
the mother shakes her head
but the baby's thin arms
shot out to grab
with eyes hungry
but filled with delight!

The Last Pine Tree Stand overlooking Dizon Subdivision... Somewhere between Pinget, Dreamland,Quirino Hill in Baguio City Aug 9, 2013
|The houses are closing in|
The pinetrees await
Quicker, and nearer
Their hearts weep
Their roots steadfast
Oh, more strength
for their last stand ;(

When my dad moved on to the everlasting life, his physical absence created an abyss of sadness within. I have to fill the void with his memories and anything tangible that would imbue his presence. The spray of scented angel-like orchids, coffee moments, making thank you cards, and other things gave comfort. Life goes through a process and it takes heart to be creative as you grieve.

During the 9th Igorot International Consultation (IIC9), speakers urged the youth to revitalize culture. Workshops on culture and arts were conducted.
"The Ninth Igorot International Consultation (IIC9) held in the City of Baguio, Philippines from April 11 to 14, 2012 has been and indeed a resounding gong echoing the voices of the Igorots throughout the world. Tackling the timely concerns and issues of the Igorots, the IIC9 has been true to its mandate and has been fruitful in its goal."

How else could we educate our children about their roots but to make them read books which we ourselves had written based from our culturally rich oral tradition..?

This book is a contribution in providing our children a reading material where they are represented. It introduces them and the many other children to cultural experiences which they might otherwise miss. Such knowledge of other cultures is an important - and useful component of education for students who live in a multicultural society.
