We can’t believe it either – it’s the night before Christmas Eve. Where did time go? It’s been three months since our last post! And there I was promising myself to do at least one a week.
A hopeless task.
Carlo is teaching more classes at the Ateneo de Manila University. Research writing, English poetry and drama, 120 freshmen in all. He is also in his last semester of course work for his master’s degree in literary and cultural studies.
Me? These past four months have been the most taxing, most grinding months of my 33-year career. A double-hatted role covering 12 time zones, the occasional crisis (or six), and very little time to fly.
We did get the airplane in fine shape this year. A brand new propeller, a sparkling new avionics fit, new instrument panel. Our stories have outstripped the time available to write about them. I still owe you stories from last year!
We’ll catch up, we promise. In the meantime, our best wishes to all for a truly Merry Christmas, and a New Year full of joyful journeys and happy homecomings!
