A Personal Reminiscence

A Personal Reminiscence

WHAT MAKES A MEMORY? 
VIRGILIO S. ALMARIO began by reciting his poem “May Sabadong Ganito” from his book “Mga Retrato at Rekwedo (1984)” as his genuine concern for San Miguel (de Mayumo), his hometown. Rio Alma recalls the things seen, regretted, lost, and neglected in the cultural heritage of the Philippines. He began to look back and feel what had happened because of the experiences of colonial history and worshiped Western culture that was remarkable. Rio Alma discovered his ability to create scale and harmony, a native element of Filipino literature.
