I did it again!

One of my works acquired a home again in Our Own Voice, an online mag maintained by Filipino expats in the States whose mission is to provide a home space for the creative expressions of Filipinos in the diaspora. A month ago, the new associate editor, Aileen Ibardaloza, got to read two poems I posted in my poetry blog and contacted me to tell me that they are interested in publishing these poems. My poem is a response I made to another poem written by my friend Toni, a co-berks member writing for blogkadahan where both poems were born. You'll find these poems here. Please do visit the site for it is a wonderful ezine with great poems, stories and essays.

This is my second poem to be published by this ezine and I am still as excited as before. The first one can be viewed here. Thank you Aileen for continued visit in my poetry blog. You don't know how much I appreciate it. Thank you Toni for sparking the idea in me to write that poem.

Tito Rolly,

Please go to this site, http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14321230/ "The Top 100 Global Universities" (2006) ayon sa newsweek magazine. Ba't ho walang galing sa Pilipinas. Sa Asia , meron ang Japan, Singapore, at Hong Kong. Asan ang UP, Ateneo, UST, at DLSU? Kung sa kalakaran sa mundo ngayon, eh di kawawa naman pala ang Pilipinas dahil maraming graduates sa Top 4 schools natin ay mga snob at akala nila, sila ay magagaling na. Eh compared globally, wala naman palang sinabi ang mga paaralang ito.

Twenty years of teaching must sure amount to something. A new friend in cyberspace suggested I ought to have a journal by now. I agree.

Jack of all trade, master of none. First a disclaimer. My students have discovered this blog and they might think that what I write is gospel truth. Worse is they might find an argument that they think they can use, for some reason or another, against their teachers. So, to set the record straight, it is NOT. As a matter of fact, I write and open it to feedback to get another view in the hope that somebody would tell me if I am wrong and reenforce my thinking if it is right. Not that I will accept anything thrown my way, though. Just so I can think about it some more and decide whether my original stance is right or definitely off tangent. So there. I hope that clarifies everything. Now, on to blogging.
