Community 2: WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

Christmas is only a week away!

Self cannot believe how fast 2013 flew by!

Thinking about “Community” a bit more.  It’s a perfect theme for the week before Christmas.

Still in connection with this theme, self will add more pictures from the last Filipino American book event she attended:  the Filipino International Book Festival, held in the San Francisco Main Library in October.

Linda Nietes, owner of Philippine Expressions, the quintessential bookstore, with Angela Narciso Torres, whose collection, BLOOD ORANGE, was this year's winner of the Willow Book Prize

Photo # 2 is a solo shot of Linda Nietes standing next to a bulul!  A bulul is an Igorot fertility carving.  There was an exhibit of bululs at the Palo Alto Cultrual Center on Newell Road, several years ago.  Nine months later, a number of women who had attended the exhibit delivered babies.  It was an unusual enough occurrence that the event got written up in the local papers.

Photo # 3 is one of my All-Time Favorites:  Florante Aguilar and Fides Enriquez, the husband-and-wife team that brought us one of self’s favorite movies of the year: a documentary about “the lost art of serenade,” Harana.
