LOST IN THE FRENZY



How's everyone? As we write, thousands of our countrymen in the Philippines and abroad are rushing through grocery stores and fruit markets in preparation for the New Year. Oddly, the New Year is welcomed with so much frenzy here instead of Christmas. Christmas has this special, quiet quality about it that makes its celebration different. Or is because Christmas really isn't in the heart? Just a thought to ponder on.

For New Year, I leave you with a photo of a busy area - the newly refurbished fountain at Sta. Cruz, Manila. Also seen in the photo are the gates of Chinatown and the building of the former Monte de Piedad Savings Bank, now GE Money Bank. Manigong Bagong Taon sa inyong lahat!
