Today is a double-gift day:

In the mail:
1. Copy of A BOOK OF HER OWN: WORDS AND IMAGES TO HONOR THE BABAYLAN - still hot off the press like warm pan de sal.
2. Copy of Amerasia Journal's latest issue on "Orientalism and the Legacy of Edward Said" which includes my book review of The Braided Tongue. (Although this link has not been updated to reflect the latest issue).

I think of my mother who didn't live long enough to see this new book but I sense that she knows she is the author of all the gifts that her children continue to bring into the world. She is my babaylan.
