Gerome will also share His latest book of essays, BRIEF MOMENTS, which will be launched this February. An excerpt from the book: TAMPURURUT

MATINDI KONG PROBLEMA noong bata pa ang pagpapatawad. Hirap na hirap ako. Parang pagkain ng sayote, o upo. Hindi malunok-lunok. Kahit simpleng mali lang ang nagawa sa akin, hinding-hindi ko maialis sa isip. Parang kati-kating paulit-ulit lamang kinakamot—mamumula, magsusugat. Kahit pa sabihing sagrado katoliko ang pamilya ko at maagang naituro sa akin ang konsepto ng makailang ulit (pito hanggang pitumpu’t pitong beses o higit pa) na pagpapatawad at muling pagtanggap. Wa epek pa rin. Ang simpleng inis, instantly, nagiging poot. As in. Kaya noon, sobrang iyakin ako. Hirap din akong tanggapin ang katotohanang ito. Pero patago lang. Madalas, sinasarili. Laging pagkatapos kong ma-offend o masaktan. Ganoon ang proseso ng rituwal. Kailangang ako lang ang makakikita, o basta mailabas ko nang ako lang (extremeties nga, sa isang lugar na hindi ako pamilyar, o sa sobrang pamilyar gaya ng mismong kuwarto o banyo sa 1st floor namin) or else, mas lalala. Sanay na hindi makipagpansinan. Walang kibuan habambuhay. Hindi lang naman pala iimik eh.

Subalit nang matuto akong magsulat (kahit pa hanggang ngayon, hindi ko pa rin masabing marunong na talaga ako), nabawasan ang pagtatanim ko ng galit (o tampo lang naman talaga) na madalas, wala naman akong inaaning mabuti o maganda. Ang moda, dadamputin ang notebook na laging dala sa bag, o sa kahit anong papel na maaaring sulatan, o haharap sa laptop; titipa-tipa sa MS word ng kahit ano. Free writing lang talaga. Mga salita hanggang makabuo ng pangungusap. Pangungusap hanggang talata. Wala munang edit-edit. Walang pakialam sa grammar o sa mga typo engot (nakuha ko ang terminong ito sa prof ko sa college sa statistics na hawi nang hawi ng buhok habang nagtuturo). Babalikan na lang matapos ituon ang sarili sa ibang bagay na mas priority sa araw o oras na iyon. At voila! Matapos sumpungan ang pagsulat na lagi na lamang ginagawang Armando Caruso, o bff na paulit-ulit na nagagalit sa ibinabahagi nating katangahan sa mundo (pero lagi rin namang nakikinig at nagpapahiram ng balikat), mapagtatantong maikli lang ang buhay sa tampo-tampo. Hindi na rin bumabata. Sa totoo lang uli, dahil nakararamdam na ng iba’t ibang sakit sa katawan, damdamin, kaluluwa.

Gusto ko lang pasalamatan ang pagsulat, o mas maganda sigurong sabihin, ang panitikan sa pangkabuuan. Hindi na ako matagal kung magalit, magtampo. Salamat din dahil ‘di ninyo lang ako pinatuloy sa bahay ninyo. Itinuring ninyo pa akong kapamilya. Pinakain. Pinatulog. Kinumutan. Tinutukan pa ng electric fan. Minsan, may breakfast on bed pa nga. Pero siyempre, pinaghugas din ng pinggan. Pinaglaba. Pinaglinis ng sala. Pinag-isis ng mga dumi. Ng banyo. Ng mesa. Ng altar. Ng bodega. Pinaranas na hindi madali ang maging kabahagi. Kabatak. Kaisa. Kasama.

Ang problema ko na lang, kung paano ko pa makakalimutan ang kabutihang ito sa akin ng pagsulat, o ng panitikan. O baka kapag pinilit kong lumihis ng daan o pilit na kalimutan, sarili ko na ang hindi ko kayaning mapatawad.

Kaya naman, asahan ninyo nang mas marami pa akong aakayin sa hiwagang matatagpuan sa tapat ng inyong pintuan. Huwag kayong mag-alala, marunong naman sila sa gawaing bahay.

Dear Members, would be members Marist School Afternoon Shift Alumni Association & The General Public: If there is a way for each of you to help raise scholarship funds for MSASAAI, would you participate? I am hoping your responses are unanimously “Yes, I will help raise scholarship funds for the tuition of more Marist School Afternoon Shift High School Students!” You may have noticed by now that I have incorporated MSASAAI as a major page in my blog. I envision this page, and all the posts related to it, as the most engaging in the blogosphere. I can see donors around the world who are entertained and educated by the posts here; much more, I see them encouraged to donate funds for the tuition of more financially deficient but deserving Marist Afternoon Shifters. Why should they be engaged? They will be engaged because they will see in this page all the talents of the members displayed on Marist School Afternoon Shift WebTV Show. This show will be a variety show on steriods (singing, dancing, acting, documentary, talk show, short film, music tv, dance tv … etc, etc,) The core campaign of the show is “Hello Friends of MSASAAI, Please donate scholarship funds.” In order to produce this show, we will need all the expertise from the members, would be members, and supportive public: Directors, Cinematographers. Hosts, Copy & Video Editors, Musicians, Performers, Writers, Graphic Designers, Critics, Caterers, Production Assistants, Project Managers & Admin Staff, Finance Managers & Staff … and more. Those who don’t have the expertise yet, but are willing to help and interested to learn the ropes of TV/Film production, are welcomed to join. For those interested, we can all see each other during the batch rep meeting on August 21 at Marist School Marikina.

PAGTATAPOS

Parang kailan lang
Kung panaho’y babalikan
Mga pangarap na binuo’y
Malapit nang makamtan

Bagong yugto na naman
Ang ating haharapin
Pangarap at tagumpay
Ay pilit nating abutin

Chorus:

Pag-akyat sa entablado
Ikintal sa isip at puso
Hirap at pagod ng mga magulang
Ay alay sa inyo

Isang munting pasasalamat
Ialay sa kanila mula sa inyo….
