in the past two weeks, i have been quite sick
[no, not in the head, we already know that's a given...hahahahaha!!!] and no amount of medication was helping me get better. Thus, i was unable to update my blogs lately.
A lot has been said and written as of late, that fourteen days do seem quite long gone. Cyberspace does, by the amount of ones and zeroes, oversaturate itself to the point of collapsing and building itself all over; a cycle that goes on and on by the second. But why am i getting there? I do get distracted a lot lately...must be the medication. Hahahaha!
Semptember just went by so fast. The 'ber' months being upon us, during the my last trip to divisoria, tabora street was all lined with twinkling lights and christmas ornaments on sale while my mind was still making plans for halloween.
I'm beginning to think that i may have put my trust in the wrong people; and stood by the ill-willed too quickly. Thus,by serious lack of judgement, may have said things impulsively without foresight, myself also deceived and victimized, and caught in the midst of what one might call "kasalaulaan" [forgive the tagalog, but it's a welcome break and i couldn't find the words.] But that mistake, as my breeding has taught me, i will have to live with.
And exercising the better part of valour also means taking all the ill things said about your person, see if there's some truth to what they said, accept them and improve upon them. And in the end, it will make you a better person.
[but my artistic judgement i do not intend to compromise; i know when something is horrible...]
Our Great Uncle Juan Orendain said this to my abuelo, Benjamin de los Reyes, once:
"What is disgraceful, is to be left to the dust after you fall."
Snaps for lolo juan!!! snap-snap-snap!
My processional image of Santa Salome will have her feast day soon...i still haven't dealt with her feast day robes, and her new jewelry!!! Whahhhh!!!
I am grateful I survived performing last september 3Oth as Oberon in TDS' 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'...given the fever, heart palpitations, aching joints, sore throat, and coughing [that miraculously happened offstage] the show went on...horrible actor that i am...[insert reaction here, wink! wink! ]
A must share text quote from Peque Gallaga,
"Sometimes the fluffy bunny of incredulity zooms round the bend so rapidly that the greyhound of language is left, agog, in the starting cage."
