“Kudyapi”  is defined by the Dictionary  as an  ‘Old Philippine Guitar’.  
Pork chops and tilapia sizzling over red-orange  embers ... close friends longing for days lost ... wondering how calculators turned into computers and beepers to cell phones. Asking themselves how children would appreciate the basics of everything when nothing else seemed ‘basic’ .  Who needs a teacher with Mr. Google at your fingertips. Who needs to woo the most beautiful girl next door  with a gitara when a minus-one would be  more than enough.  So they say …
Walk hand in hand with your son...sit in the grass...lie down and stare at the stars ..feel the sand slither between your toes and listen to the never-ending waves rushing for  shore.  Close your eyes and then smile, ask  yourself   Wasn’t “Annie’s Song”  so much sweeter  with a guitar and a soft cheek resting on your shoulder?
                                                                                                By:   Nin
