My father’s forefathers were fishermen from Maria, Siquijor. In 1930s, my great grandfather’s fishing exploits ushered him to the coastal villages outside Pagadian in Mindanao.
Although born and bred a Mindanaoan, Daddy grew up with stories of the fireflies of Siquijor. I did, too.
So to finish our month-long family road trip to VisMin in June 2016, I wish to bring Dad home– to where our lineage of big hearts and great minds began.
