From Pablo Picasso

Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. 
And what do we teach our children? 
We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. 
When will we also teach them what they are?
We should say to each of them:
Do you know what you are?
You are a marvel.
You are unique.
In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you.
Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move.
You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven.
You have the capacity for anything.
Yes, you are a marvel.
And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel?
You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.

Barado

Gusto kong magsulat, pero di ko magawa.


Marami akong naiisip isulat, pero hindi ako makabuo ng isang matinong blog post. Ang problema, mukhang nagkapira-piraso na ang laman ng isip ko. Parang puzzle na walang katapusan kong bubuuin. Tila sa sobrang dami ng butil ng ideyang nagkahalu-halo na sa bao ng ulo ko, hindi na makasabay ang mga daliri ko sa pagtipa ng mga letrang bubuo ng mga salitang gusto kong ipahayag. 

Gusto ko pang magsulat. Gusto ko pang magkwento. Gusto kong magsalita.


Pero bakit di ko magawa? Sana'y malusaw na ang kung anumang bagay na nakabara sa aking lalamunan at isipan..


itutuloy...
