An attempt to make sense of things in a random universe, one Friday at a time.

And just like that

the year -- and the decade -- is over.

And I’m spending year-end with the people I love and two little fat baby rabbits named Twitter and Facebook. There’s food and friends and time to sleep, and a new Moleskine planner for the year ahead.

I don’t know what the new year will bring, and I cannot say that it will be “fabulous,” like what so many people seem to be so confident in predicting, but I do know that whatever 2011 brings, I will deal with it with as much grace, restraint, and elegance as I can.

Sensibilities has turned five

And I thank all my readers, followers, friends and relatives for your silent yet clear encouragement, and for your consistent support. It gives me great comfort that with each word I throw out there into the big wild infinity that is the Internet, from my very first post and onwards, someone else captures them and gains insight, strength, a few laughs, and the sense that one is not alone. In the invisible filaments that thread us all together, may we thrive on the faith that even if we cannot make sense of everything in this random universe, our humble attempts -- including my own, each Friday, in this blog -- can be just as important and fulfilling.

This year, Christmas Eve falls on a Friday, so I am taking this opportunity to wish everyone peace, love, joy, health, laughter, more friends, and a good night’s sleep each time.

May good cheer rain on us all!

I'm on Pakinggan Pilipinas

Or rather, my story is.

Listen to Dulce Amor Fortunato read "God is the space between" here.

The story is also coming out in the special crime issue of Philippine Genre Stories.
