There is no "Odyssa" without writing, even if writing can exist without "Odyssa".
Writing, I found, is a part of me. I can't ignore it, I can't separate from it. It's a limb attached to me, a buzzing sound I can't turn off.
Here are the things I've been working on which I hope you are interested to read about that's why you are here.
If you've read my work from the time I started writing online, then you know me better than most, and I, thank you for standing by.

Poetry is my refuge. Read one of my recent poems in this blog here.
Back on Medium
My Medium writing page is back and running. For six months, I had no access to my account. My tech-ie friend and lifetime tech support (hehehe) from the Philippines, Jhim, helped me out and I couldn't be more grateful.
Medium readers pushed me to take writing seriously that's why I find it hard to leave this platform.
A new bookshop
Early next year, my books will be carried by a boutique bookstore specialising in independently-published books. I'm thrilled to be doing this, finally, as I really need to give this to a team who knows what they're doing.
I will share more as things happen later. This is a project I'm really looking forward to 2023!
To end this post, I want to share with you my open letter to 2022.
At the beginning of the year, I said, "Those opportunities from 2021 were new passions, jobs, and relationships, even. This is the year to carry on."
And carried on we all did. Within my own little world, I wrote, traveled, worked, and wrote some more.
Time flew by. Time passed. The year that I addressed a few blinks ago is closing.
This year took and it gave. And we're still standing.
