Summer was just around the corner and I, as an islander born here in Cebu, where the ocean meets the sky, was given the opportunity to again discover something good in our humanity.

Discovering Myself Again at Bunzie’s Cove [Part 1 of 2]

Lately, I have been subjected to undue stress from friends, family, career and life in general. It had me shaken to the core and left me, for a time, lifeless.
