Before the Choral Singing Competition in Ras Al-Khaima, Michelle, who was in Jordan, asked in the Blackberry Group, “Anong meron today? Anong contest?” as she didn’t know that the group was competing.
I replied, “Poster Making Contest. Ang theme: Kalikasan at Kapayapaan para sa Kaunlaran”
Joy, when she read this told me, “Naalala ko tuloy hung bata ako, kapag pinapag-drawing ng nature, laging bukid na may dalawang bundok!”
I know what she was talking about, I was that same nature-drawing child, “Tapos may puno punong maliit sa paanan ng bundok?”
“Oo!” she answered, “Saka may small birds na parang ‘V’ lang.”
“Meron ding bahay na malapit sa drawing. Kubong maliit.”
When we shared this to the choir, they also shared how they used to draw the same picture, “May konting clouds!” “May smile pa ang araw.”
