  • Predicament: Suicide by Paul Cuenco 3/27/2012 7:33:09 PM

  • Predicament: Water, Water Everywhere by Paul Cuenco 3/26/2012 8:57:17 PM
    A few years back, I was still one of those people drinking water from a bottle. I believed that the water from the bottle was much cleaner than what we got from the tap. Not that the tap was absolutely bad, but water from the bottle was better. Unt... more

    When my Tita Dimple wrote about her father, Papa Trining, it was the most heart rendering write-up she ever did that I know of. I have always known my Tita Dimple to be among the gentlest person I ever have known; and I understand now why that is so... more

  • Predicament: The Future Should Be Brighter by Paul Cuenco 3/23/2012 9:23:12 PM
    I remember my Papa Eriong saying that the next generation must be better than the preceding one. I supposed what he meant by it was that the next generation must be smarter and financially more advance than the preceding one. When I was younger, I d... more

  • Predicament: Death of a Writer by Paul Cuenco 3/22/2012 9:27:08 PM
    I was driving to Trumps one night and my thoughts swirled. My thoughts were like stew with meaty chunks swimming in a pool of soup, thick and entwined with the flavor and aroma that an excellent thought goes through. But what must I write about whe... more

  • It's Almost Done! by Edward Austin Averill 3/22/2012 9:01:31 AM

  • Predicament: The Season Re-liveth by Paul Cuenco 3/21/2012 7:49:56 PM
    It’s Spring again! Close to a month ago, I saw buds from my plants beginning to sprout. It was late in the evening that I doubted myself but now, it was undoubtedly near Spring. The buds of the trees turned pinkish red and although the leaves had ... more

  • Predicament: Time Had Forgotten About by Paul Cuenco 3/20/2012 7:52:39 PM
    This woman. She was chubby but not in a cute manner; nor was she atrocious in her demeanor or appearance. She was just plain. Her face was scrubbed clean but her hair was unwieldy like an unmade bed in the morning and never meant to be made. She ... more

  • Predicament: Closing Time by Paul Cuenco 3/19/2012 7:01:17 PM
    It has been crowded here at Greater Trumps this Fridays and Saturdays that the bar maids had stacks of glasses four to a trolley, and more. I could not even order another glass of beer lest I waited for quite some time. When I raised my glass or ca... more

  • Who IS That Man? by Dorien Grey 3/19/2012 5:48:28 AM
    I often share the average two-year-old child’s firm conviction that the sun, moon, and stars revolve around me—which is hardly an attitude conducive to a writer expecting to attract or hold readers. However, I suspect, if you have been read others of... more

    I have a pimple on my nose. It started this morning when I was looking at the mirror and there it was a red blemish, devolving into an absolute red humpback right of the very tip. It has not yet accumulated some puss. In fact, sometimes, the pimpl... more
