In the Presence of Greatness: Bienvenido Lumbera - National Artist for Literature

If I only had 1/100th the talent of this guy, I might be able to finally write that novel in my head!  But since God gave me other gifts, I can only look with admiration and a bit of envy at what poets, critics and writers like Bienvenido Lumbera can do!  He's definitely one of the pillars of contemporary Philippine literature - and that he used his pen to fight the mighty Marcos dictatorship - shows that he's one of the reasons why we are enjoying our freedoms today.  He's a living National Artist mind you and I was so honored to be able to have a photo op with him last nigh!

I really sought him out last night because I believe we should celebrate our writers and glorify them - otherwise, we would be a country without a soul.  He's a very amiable person and if only I took lit subjects in UP, he might have been one of my professors.
