"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

surprise. surprise.

after a while of not being able to share my thoughts and what-nots here, i'm back again. i haven't really been gone. i can't remember a day i haven't been online for the past month but it took me until today to write another entry again.

my life's going good so far. i get to experience the usual fluctuations of day-to-day living but everything's been bearable and i'm having the time of my life going through my highs and lows, learning, growing, becoming.

during the time i wasn't able to update this blog, i've been regularly multiplying -- that is, updating and using my premium multiply account. of course, i have to make the most out of it.

between shuttling back and forth, going here and there, catching my breath, i could say i've been putting my energies to good use.

there is so much i want to share but, let's face it, so much can happen in a month that if i start sharing now what i've been through during the month i haven't written anything, i wouldn't be able to finish anymore. babbler that i am, i could go on and on and on.

for some updates, you may visit my multiply account. huge parts of it are accessible to everyone.

for more of my thoughts, wait 'til my next entry... or entries for that matter.

lately i've been able to watch footages of iligan, kauswagan and kolambugan on tv -- yes, i now have my own TV in my batangas crib -- no thanks to you, bravo (if i were in your shoes, i wouldn't want to carry a name that could be mistaken for a mere pack of biscuit. oh, that reminds me. i don't want to be in your shoes because you are evil.)

i'm upset with what's happening in mindanao. it's really disturbing to read about lawlessness. people are being displaced from their homes, pushed to run far away from where there is threat. the unlucky ones die without justice. men, women, and children suffer and all these unfold for the name of what?!

when i read about the barely two-year old child that they (i don't know what to call them -- the first thing that comes to mind is the word 'killers' but even that seems to be inadequate, they're worse than that) left dead in pantar, my eyes welled up. God bless them.

with all that's happening in my home island, my biggest consolation is that my family in iligan still remains safe.
