That morning, I was to hear cases for the first time since the earthquake of nearly three months ago weakened the supports of the courthouse. My people had set up a tent in the parking area, on the space allotted to us, and had laid out tables and chairs for the lawyers and litigants.

Nina Arnejo Precillas will be missed. While alive, she made a difference in the lives of people around her. In death, she did the same. We were not close but she was a dear sister in our charismatic community.

One of the most interesting gifts I received last Christmas was a set of books and a DVD on Saving the Planet from Barbs Fortunato (a former student in UP Cebu High School). It addresses vital questions: Can ordinary people help save our planet under siege from environmental crises, and what does it take to change attitudes and lifestyles to consume and waste less? This Asian series profiles six successful initiatives that combine knowledge, skills and passion to create cleaner and healthier environment through local action. The stories were identified from a regional competition, and produced by TVE Asia and Pacific in cooperation with local organizations and film crews. Filmed in Cambodia, India, Laos, Nepal, The Philippines and Thailand, and produced in 2009, each story runs for fifteen minutes.

The human being is an alien spaceship piloted by a crew who have lost all their maps or suffered collective amnesia to the extent that they have absolutely no idea where they are, where they come from, or where they are going. And so they peer through little portholes and drive as best as they can, recording their journey as they go, for future use, or perhaps just out of a nervous instinct. Is there anything to this thesis? The best proof would be my husband.

In the place where I used to reside in Magallanes Street, the Cebu city government through Lucelle Mercado and Probe head Raquel Arce was able to clear and clean up what used to be a gasoline station surrounded by ambulant vendors’ shanties.
