A sunflower in Sirao Farm, Cebu City - Photo by Joan Narciso

I don’t think there’s anything on this planet that more trumpets life than the sunflower. For me that’s because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that’s such an admirable thing.
And such a lesson in life. — Helen Mirren

Joan is a walking set of ironies, only she rarely walks outside her bedroom/office these days. She gets terrible headaches when she skips coffee in the morning, has no Facebook app on her phone, and does not know how people stand small talk. She has always thought she was set on her dreams but midlife discovered that dreams change and that's okay. But while her dreams evolve, the whys behind don't. Jesus Christ, the Philippines and her family are her life's greatest loves and strength, today and always.
