i just received an email from my publisher, Adarna House, who co-sponsors a creative writing workshop for children's literature with the Ateneo Institute of Literary Arts and Practices (AILAP), that i am among 9 fellows selected for the 5th Barlaya workshop grant i applied for some weeks ago!!!
there's still some concerns to smooth out with transportation and accommodation costs, though, but i trust that the Universe/God will provide, and/or pave the way for me.
life is sweet. suddenly, all my heart's desires are just manifesting, like rosebuds coming to full bloom now!!!
God is good. Life is good. the travails of the past are all worth it.
