    What I read is a journal of a simple man who draws on the rhythms of daily living. Your written communication is naturally honest and poetic. It gives us a glimpse of the event and the emotion is re-created. Keep at it, G.

    Hi Manong MD,
    You are a very versatile writer and you have been my inspiration to write in our dialect since I started reading your works in Pangasinan Online. Mas lalo akong naiintriga sayo. I wish I could meet you in person and see who is behind the keys (pen) . When I read your poems, they always make my day. Responding to your poems is even honing my knowledge and ability to speak our dialect.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

    From your avid fan.

dropping a quarter on the carpet
i lean back to see where it lands
rub my back on somebody's hands
"excuse me, may i help you please? "
i turn around my lips is on her face

i blush, i feel my heart pounds
i touch her arm; whisper sorry
she waves her hand; smiles at me
yes, i give a last quick ...
