Sorry I wasn’t able to post this note earlier.
I had too many deadlines and had to prepare for my trip.
My hubby gave me his air miles which I was supposed to use last year but didn’t because so many things happened – the Corona impeachment trial followed by the uproar over ther cybercrime law. I just couldn’t go.
But recently, Alan told me his air miles were expiring this December and if I didn’t use it, he would.
So I decided – just before the pork barrel scam became very big news – to go to Europe. The place I will be staying in for the longest time is Berlin, followed by Rome.
I will be gone for a month only. Right now, I’m typing this in a convent in Rome near the Vatican. On an Italian keyboard that’s driving me batty.
The trip is partly also to think about my life and what I’d like to do with this website.
I will try to update you as best as I can.
I have drafts of stories which I will post when I get back.
And best of all, I will see our politics with new eyes.
I’d also like to apologize for the “comments under moderation.” I dont know why Akismet does that. But I cant remove akismet because then I would be putting the entire site at risk of hacking and viruses.
Please watch out for the following
Just before I left, I noticed a report about an alleged new group in the military that was restive about corruption.
Closely watch and wait.
The coming weeks and months will be the most dangerous period for this administration because it is making too many political enemies who could all band together for a common cause.
The wild card here is the growing watchfulness of the middle class that flexed its political muscle during the recent rally in anti-pork rally in Luneta.
Today I went inside the Catacomb of San Callisto in Rome which the early Christians used for burial.
It made me think how our lives are merely seconds in the history of mankind. But oh how we scratch and scramble and fight for what we desire.
