today's gift:

Hi Leny,
I am 21 years old, filipino, born in
Manila, .....

... So I started to write again and start questioning what I wanted out of life. I went to the Pistahan festival in San Francisco a few weeks after I came back and I decided at that festival I was going to buy a few books before I left. I knew the books at the festival were books that I couldn't get at your local Barnes & Nobles. There was one stand that Eduardo Detangez was selling some books laid out on a table and for some reason your book "A Book of Her Own" was calling me. At first I picked it up and thought hmm maybe I should start looking around more, but for some reason I couldn't put it down. I decided to buy it and the lady at the stand told me that it was a great book, how great of a speaker you are and well known. She also told me about the Baybaylan Conference in April at Sonoma State. So I joined that conference circle on Facebook and eventually found you =)"

also, I wanted to say Thank you for your works. You are a true inspiration to me. I appreciate all your hard work and your ability to share your thoughts and words. It is comforting to know that there is someone else out there that feels some of the same overwhelming emotions."
