dear reader -
i think i like this format, don't you? it feels better to imagine you as someone who is there except i can't see you or touch you. i'll pretend that you are my friend who is interested in the themes you find here. meandering thoughts. beleaguered thoughts. sonambulist thoughts.

today i was ruminating on the difficulty of dialogue when the people sharing the dialog space do not speak the same language or share the same texts. i find that the role of the translator is not easy because it is always more than about language, it is also about culture, intergenerational difference, and the personal/personalities. i find myself walking a fine line, trying to bring everyone on the same page. patience, i tell myself. kapwa, my dear.

i am learning to let go.
