Me? an "Innovative and Thought Leader"?

Thanks to whoever might have nominated me; it is quite humbling and inspiring to be in good company - some of whom are my dear friends. And yet when I was asked to fill this survey, I was at a loss for words. Am not used to talking about what I do in terms of its "impact, involvement, sustainability, professionalism, mentorship." Let others talk about what it is they think I do or what I am about. But this much I was able to say: I hope the work that I do sustains the (academic, spiritual, cultural) work of those who came before and will be sustained by those who will come after. And if the Filipina babaylan symbolizes what it means to be a human being, then I hope that the babaylan spirit that inspires me transcends the requirements of professionalism.

I don't know yet if I will be able to attend the summit.
