Eleven months ago but not necessarily today, Avel and I decided to have coffee. We kept on postponing it until the new management of our newly-privatized company then transferred me to my Visayas post. Hence, the coffee break didn't come to pass.
But like one writer wrote, things have a way of coming full circle. The Bible calls it: "In the fullness of time". And so it came to pass that today, finally after eleven colorful months, the coffee break materialized. That's coming full circle, I tell you.
Avel encouraged me to blog. Hmmm. I told him I will try. I just lost a parent and whenever I do, I always lose inspiration to write.
I lost my mother in 2001 and I did not write for a year. I lost father on December 14, 2009. Similarly, I am still grieving over his loss.
But I found inspiration in the way he encouraged me. Most often than not, inspiration can be derived from people. And because of that, here I am writing my first-ever blog after father died, thanks to Avel. If I become famous, you can only blame him for inspiring me. I take no credit.
