Sine Cera: Without Wax

Leadership and love

THERE is a direct relationship between power and patience. Most of the time, the greater the power a person has, the greater the tendency to be impatient. There’s something about power that makes us intolerant of the weaknesses, mistakes, and incompetence of others. 

Adventures with Dad

I’m a firm believer that it’s best to tell a person how valuable he/she is to you while that person is still alive and well. Tributes given to one who has already passed away should just be a bonus! That’s why, in our family, we give “real time tributes” to each other as a way of life.

Fathers can change the world

‘Fathers who father their children well—according to the rules of our Heavenly Father—can change this world for the better, and make our world a kinder, safer, more loving place, even for those who weren’t fathered well.’ 

Marrying rich

Of course it’s not a crime to marry rich. Wouldn’t you want to marry the man or woman you’re madly in love with — who also happens to be filthy rich? Or just plain rich?

‘We have different priorities, different values, different situations in life. We shouldn’t impose our own values and priorities on others. Not even our closest friends.’

‘Is he sincere or not? Does she have a hidden agenda? What’s in it for him/her? Are his/her intentions pure — or not? Am I being manipulated? Exploited? Bribed? Deceived?’

Onal’s offbeat landscapes exhi

MILMAR Onal’s minimalist figures draw calmness highlighting a straightforward intention, his lines meandering up and down, depicting a lifeline of an undiluted flow of energy -- electrifying and unpredictable. The figures remind one of a schematic diagram; specific details, omitted thereby encouraging discourse and making it open to the viewer’s own visual interpretation. 

The price of integrity

‘But to me, last Friday was a bleak, bleak Friday. That’s why I’m personally appalled by how many Filipinos have remained stoic. Unaffected and apathetic. Silent by choice.’

More than enough

‘The world is self-destructing, self-annihilating, and systematically sabotaging itself — because of man’s insatiable greed for money, power and fame. And yet that quest has proven futile and empty. For many, it has ended in suicide, drug overdose, addictions, assassinations, plunder, genocide and imperial insanity.’

‘My heart goes out to those who killed the babies, and those who were part of the killings. I’m sure the horrors and the consequences of abortion are  indescribable, unimaginable, and unthinkable.’
