Pilipinas kong minumutya. How do I even start writing to you? My heart is filled with such mixed emotions about you. Don’t get me wrong. I love you. I do. You’re filled with so much wonder. So much beauty. It’s more fun, it’s more overflowing with smiles, it’s more… it’s more everything where you are. You’re home.
But I look at you from afar and I sigh. I know every country has its imperfections. And you have more that your share of them. There are so many things I want to improve about you! But what to do. My voice, my ideas – they can only go so far.
When I go back into your arms, I’ll take everything I have learned and pour it out to you. Well, it’s mostly good web design and development. But hey, we have lots of things to work on in the .ph portion of the World Wide Web. But I’ll pour out the other things as well.
I miss you, dear Philippines. But let me be honest – sometimes I dread coming back to you. But they say, perfect love casts out fear, right? When the time comes that I’ll be back – as in back – let that love drive out all fear, and let me realize that I am indeed at home with you.
