Sabi nga ni Winnie, I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, and long words bother me.
All I know is that three years ago, I took a trip to Bondoc Peninsula and never looked back.
Some days when I get lost, I take that trip again in my mind’s eye (to Bondoc, to Calatagan, what does it matter?), and I find myself right where I need to be. Where everything is clear once more. Where the truths are neither nuanced nor muddled, but burn with scorching certainty.
