They said classical music is dead. Having been playing classical music for more than half of my life, I do not know how they came to that conclusion. But when people asked me why I’m into classical music, I found myself speechless and wondering why myself. Now, though, I have an answer. They said classical music is dead, but on May 26, 2013, the day of my premier piano recital, I hoped that I proved them wrong.

We attribute so much power to experience. The more trials and hardships hurdled, the wiser we are. I guess that’s why we are respectful of wrinkly people whose hair has grown white, whose irises have become lighter, as if the light and color they came upon have siphoned life from their very eyes.

The first time my mother served us brown rice instead of white, I lost my appetite. I imagined the rice, brown like feces, infested by flies. It tasted all right, not sweet but still palatable. It was just the color that made me imagine disgusting things.

I believe in God. For all its worth, I attend Mass every week. I serve in our charismatic community and I believe Someone higher is responsible for my ups and I, for my downs.
