A Letter to my Readers: Welcome

I should apologize to my readers, if there are. A few maybe grammar police or find the entire blog a total waste. HeartandLetters happens to be a personal blog. It's a collection of letters to people I've lost both to love and death, of poems to speak of unspoken whispers, and lyrics that remained unsung in my heart.

I am not strict in grammar and sentence structure. I just want to become myself again after not writing for almost a decade- the past 9 years. I've been hurt terribly that time that I do not want to acknowledge the hurt. Writing is a total realization of everything, of what you think and of what you feel. As years passed by, I am afraid to write again since I do know that my pen has already become rusty.

A few minutes of chat with my fellow writers, Nestor Burgos Jr. of PDI and another editor of The Guardian, made me think to write again. "A writer is always a writer," as they say.

I would also like to thank my Manang Patricia for that one chat we had as she encouraged me to write again. Most of all, to DDEF of The Watchmen Daily Journal for always being there to help me write my life. But the biggest reason I want to write again is  I want to heal. I want to heal.

There was a time that HeartandLetters caught the attention of GMA7 way back in 2007 when one of their segment writers sent me an invitation for an interview. I knew then that my simple and humble blog somehow caught someone's heart.

Welcome again to Heart and Letters. Join me. You can also send your heart and letters and heal like me.
