Subject: A Falling Out Among Pirates
Kuya, I read with great interest your subject piece. As usual, you outdid yourself. You are in a class all your own. When will the world ever learn to listen to you and give you the recognition you so rightfully deserve. It seems part of the problem is that people never seem to care to listen – or to engage in deep thought. You are way up there. People will wait until they are able to drag you down to their level. A few hundred years from now, like the dead sea scrolls, someone will discover your blogs for what they are really worth. By then it will have been too late. Like most prophets, you might just wind up to be another voice in wilderness. It’s a crazy world.Btw, only very recently I also thought of writing something about the Scarborough Shoal brouhaha – of course in a much lighter vein. If it fails to be published in the Inquirer, I will email a copy to you. ciao…

I bookmarked your blog so I can always visit it and read the gardener’s tales.
Late last year, I discovered Roger Doiron’s My Subversive (garden) Plot at TedX.
You might be interested to learn a thing or two from his video. Here’s the link to the video: (Click here to see the video)
Advance the subversive (garden) plot! Let us all become subversives and the grow the revolution in our own backyards. LOL!
