“Saan ba nakasulat na kailangan puro pagtitiis ang tadhana ng Pilipino?”—President Benigno Aquino III. Made me teary-eyed, this inauguration did. He doesn’t have the rhetoric and charisma of his dad and the innate light of his mom. He will forever be compared to his parents and overshadowed by their larger-than-life reputations. But, my God, for better or for worse, he is ours for four years. For better or for worse, he represents our hopes and dreams. For better or for worse, he is us for four years.

“Remember Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies.”—Stephen King

My name is Terrie. I write for a living and blog for pleasure. Some days, I get up in the morning and know precisely what kind of day it is. At other times, I get knocked over for a loop. People seem to like confiding in me. When I was younger, I thought I knew everything and can tell you what you need to do if you ask me. Now that I'm older, I realize I don't know anything. That's been my motivation for the blog and for writing. To figure out the unknown and unknowable.
