The Wannabe
Even though I only had a 1 year teaching stint at the College of Fine Arts in UP (teaching web design), the umbilical cord I've had with the artists and their scene remained intact. I've always had a strong affinity for artists even back in the day when I'd hang out with them and struggle to glimpse into their world through their work. I was the perpetual wannabe...envious how they can materialize their thoughts and feelings through brush, paint and canvas. I'm aware of my limitations and no longer frustrate myself. Instead, I celebrate their work, their chosen lifestyle and the bohemian outlook they carry.

2 Degrees of Separation
When I got an invite to be at the art opening of Beautiful Sins at ArtAsia, it was another occasion for me to connect to friends and acquaintances and in no small measure, to connect with strangers who are yet to be friends. Yeah, that's what strangers really are...friends in waiting, if you think that we're all within 2 degrees of separation. with art as common denominator, the guard is down and the currency of choice is a smile and a handshake.
