IDENTITY CHRIST-is (Identity Crisis Ninang?) We are and then we’re maybe not. We think but others don’t. We see but others can’t. We feel and then we doubt. We do and now ask why. Have you wondered if our identity is plainly a figment of our imagination? Identity Crisis, coined and experienced by German psychologist … Continue reading IDENTITY CHRIST-is
THE BIG PICTURE
THE BIG PICTURE Through which we see, we respond. That which we see commands how we react. But we can look another way. You know-- and see the Big Picture. Can you see the big picture? You were hurt. You were ignored by someone you love. You were criticized. But everybody else has been. Do … Continue reading THE BIG PICTURE
The JUSTICE in Dengvaxia
The JUSTICE in Dengvaxia The truth is we will never know the truth. No matter how elaborate the inquiry. People are clouded by emotions, self-interests, biases, even science. Highlighting bad science (bad decision) that offsets the good of science (much needed, time-tested immunization program) is failure of science. Who really is at fault? That may … Continue reading The JUSTICE in Dengvaxia

Just Love (Kapamilya Ninang?)
Just Love Can we run out of love? Surely we are human. How long can you put up with a child who defies you and shows no respect? Until when will one allow a philandering spouse to have the company of another before the martyr spouse finally leaves? When will you stop being a friend … Continue reading Just Love (Kapamilya Ninang?)
GOOD VIBES.. BAD VIBES (Vibes tayo Ninang ha!)
GOOD VIBES.. BAD VIBES (Vibes tayo Ninang ha!) I envied people with good vibes. People like them. I like them. Without speaking, without smiling (well maybe a little), they make people comfortable just being there. Charismatic, trustworthy by default, they speak, and we loosen up. I needed more effort to be liked. I don't give … Continue reading GOOD VIBES.. BAD VIBES (Vibes tayo Ninang ha!)
