The Meaning of (My) Life

I have written about this before, but I have been thinking about it again. It’s about the meaninglessness of life, and my acceptance of that, and what it’s like to see people around me — either close to me, or just humanity in general — cope in this world through any way they can, be …

‘night, Mother

“Anak kita!” “Ako ang nangyari sa anak mo.” • Yesterday night, I had the pleasure to watch ‘night, Mother, starring Eugene Domingo and Sherry Lara. Gut-wrenching, but funny.
