Online Exhibit 2
I'm back from Boston.
The experience was exhilarating and exciting at best. The drive was long but well worth it. The thought of speaking in front of people from Boston maybe gut wrenching (see Mark Twain's quote above) but I felt ok and the message was well-received.
I discovered myself to be not so starstruck around famous people (as we were co-starring with Joey Albert in the concert), even made friends with her as we were bunked in the same host family's residence in Lexington. (No, she didn't hear my infamous snoring).
I could have had 2 star friends now had I met with Pia who I remembered to inform post-Boston trip. Sowee! (for the 2nd time, we were there last Summer on our way to Martha's Vineyard).
Next stop - Ottawa! GK Youth Build's message is resonating and the youth are now part of the miracle. Slowly but surely...
I received a total of $ 190 from the mail from various blog friends in response to my request to support me during last month's GK Walk toward building a GK house for the poorest of the poor back in the Philippines. My sincerest gratitude to all those who supported. God knows you and your generous heart.
I was thinking of coming up with CAD$ 1,800 - which is the cost of a house in the province - all coming from Blog Friends. Would it be nice to have an edifice of the created friendships made online. I'm calling this project our GK BlogHouse.
Bayanihan - in a different sense of the word. Email me if you want to participate. I'm looking at going back to the Philippines next summer to help put up the house myself. Would you join me?
$ 1,600 to go!....
Head on to the newly-revived Viajero website. There are 6 images of Boston that I wanted to share, on top of the 12 Fall Color pics which you all viewed last week. You can view them all by clicking on the right side of the pic (just like opening a page of a photo album)
Oh, the picture above was the Chiho Aoshima's mural in Boston's Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) of the girl farting lavender flowers :) Not really smelly
