***Pandesal or pan de sal (Spanish for “salt bread”) is a common bread roll in the Philippines madeof flour, eggs, yeast,
sugar, and salt.

Come sit with me, my table is crowded with books and papers and of course there’s my caramel macchiato, but I will push them all aside for your coffee cup and you. We are now in what I like to call the “ber” months; it is fast approaching the end of and also beginning of a new year. It is this time of year I want to preserve in a capsule.

Time passes and it is the one commodity we relentlessly pursue, wanting more, using time saving devices and tactics to squeeze more seconds and minutes. But what do we do with all the time we have accumulated and saved?

I think I am a fine “time waster”! I waste my time doing things I love. I read within the moments and write between pauses and spaces. I like conversation, about books and ideas.
