Nawawala: Isang Panawagan

(Ang sumusunod ay panawagan sa nawawala kong kaibigan.)

Kaibigan, kung saan ka man naroroon ay sana umabot sa iyo ang panawagang ito. Hanap-hanap na kita. Hindi ko alam kung bakit mo ako linayasan. Nangungulila ako ngayong wala ka.

Meron ba akong pagkukulang sa iyo? Kung ano man iyon, sana pagpasensiyahan mo na. Huwag ka nang magtampo.

Kung hindi ko man nasabi sa iyo noon, ay sasabihin ko sa iyo ngayon – kailangan kita. Pinahahalagahan ko ang iyong nagagawa sa akin. Inspirasyon kita. Sana naman muli kang magbalik. Nami-miss na kita.

At sa publiko na nakakarinig (at nakakabasa) ng panawagang ito, nakikiusap po ako na sana naman ay ipaalam at ipaabot ninyo ang mensaheng ito sa kinauukulan.

Uulitin ko lang pong muli ang aking panawagan……

Sa aking Muse*, parang awa mo na, umuwi ka na. Para makapagsulat na uli ako. Napapanis na kasi itong aking blog. Matagal-tagal nang walang bagong post. Ihaon mo na ako sa aking writer’s block.

Creative Writing

It was 10 moons ago that I launched myself into the far-reaching space of blogosphere and it had been a wonderful journey so far. I have met people who are in different parts of the world, that I would never have the chance to meet except through the blogosphere. Again, my heartfelt thanks.

I don’t know what came upon me why all of a sudden I like to write (and blog). Perhaps the Muse of writing visited me while I was asleep one night and planted this inspiration bug in my brain.

Kiss of the Muse, 1859-60, by Paul Cezanne

Now I have all this crazy idea of things I should write about. Don’t be surprised if one of these days I will even write an ode to Periplaneta americana, or also known as the common cockroach. (Pati ipis imported pa sa Amerika!) And having my articles even published on a circulated national newspaper is beyond my childhood dreams.

During my school years, I was not fond of writing at all. I can spend a whole day drawing and doodling though, but not writing. I would be lying if I say that I like doing essays, book reports, term papers and thesis. I know I was not alone. And that’s why Recto is so popular among students who wanted to cut corners.

Which reminds me: if you invent a book report, is that considered creative writing?
