I believe that within all of us in the deepest part of our soul, lies a rare gift so beautiful and mysterious that it is feared by those who wish to deny it. But for the ones who were raised to appreciate this gift, it is embraced, for there’s this “knowing” that they can make a difference in life.
Born in a small village in the Philippines, youngest in a family of 9 children, I grew up watching my father as he used the phases of the moon to plan his activities, when to plant seeds, harvest the crops or just for when to go fishing. Timing is important, he always said, never pick a fruit prematurely or it will not taste right, referring to more things than farming.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I hope to get a chance to return the favor.
