My Young Blood Artik.

“What’s your hobby?”

My boss asked that question.

And I was caught off guard trying to answer it.

I finally answered, after minutes of thinking, that during my leisure time, I write anything and everything I can think of.

“Why?” was her next question.

These days, I rarely share my thoughts to friends personally. Work has been so demanding that I do not see them as often as before. Life has been playing tricks on me by isolating me from the people I find comfortable to be with.

And so, I contented myself by scribbling down my inner thoughts. Most of them aren’t published though.

This one article stands out. I gathered enough courage to click the button and send an email to the Philppine Daily Inquirer’s Young Blood section.Read on. And do leave a comment. Thanks.

    Great article! Indeed!But Sir Ed, I didn't found God in it. I do not mean anything bad with my statement. But I guess more than anyone else in this world,you must establish a good relationship with him. Of course, I am not mandating you to do so immediately or that I am presenting myself as a cleanly living Christian. It is just a suggestion from someone who had also thought the same
