By: Tigs Tidalgo
When I wrote something about doors in the past, I meant it as metaphoric figure of speech to emphasize something of a gateway towards a direction. This time is entirely different for the door I am talking about is simply an ordinary structure where people get in or out the building.
What I am [...]

Erwinism: The Bogeyman Steps Out of the Closet

By Erwin Maramat
Memories have a funny way of keeping you awake at night, a good substitute for espresso. They stare at you until sleep grows stale. In one of those episodes, it came to me as a ghost of the past. It took my thoughts by the hand and illuminated a scene long forgotten. I [...]

ni Pastor Amor P. Ruba

Magandang araw po sa inyong lahat mga mahal na kababayan dito sa Calgary. There are people who are asking me to tone down my preaching and my writing. To them what is important is not to preach sin and judgment of God but to preach love and acceptance and happiness. I [...]

By Erwin D. Maramat
If soap doesn’t work, maybe, some people ought to wear a diaper on their mouth. As if these creatures just leapt out from the pages of a horror story, they never really have anything good to say but throw F-bombs at everything. We are equipped with a vestibular system that is responsible [...]

I heard that relationship is the greatest problem in North America because everyone is affected by it. Every family is affected by sibling rivalry, jealousy, pride and by fighting match. Almost every home is affected by divorce – husband and wife engaged in a bitter and nasty divorce. This should not [...]

A building rose up in the middle of nowhere. Though awkward in location, the new public hospital from a distance showed beauty and style. It has no rival in an open farmland. An empty wide flowers-divided road was purposely built to access the facility from the main highway. It looked impressive as it [...]

The New World Dictionary defines responsibility as a “condition, quality, fact, or instance of being accountable; answerable; able to distinguish between right and wrong, and think and act rationally.”  We tend to think of responsibility as something given to  us by someone who is in a position of authority, such as [...]

For Henry and Connie
We are fleeting wisps in the incessant stream of time, and time knows nothing of love, joy, or sorrow as it recklessly sweeps by. Time doesn’t comprehend that love in itself is eternity. The gift of love wipes away the sense of space and time. Love takes root in the [...]

Erwinism: For the Love of Love

Erwinism: For the Love of Love thumbnail

By Erwin D. Maramat

Is love just mere intervention of neurochemicals that govern our drives? We have psychologists performing longitudinal studies on love, but knowing how love works more important than actually loving people?
