Elvin Joseph Sanico was one of the best professors I was privileged to have at the UP National Institute of Physics in Diliman. His use of the continuity equation for steady one-dimensional flow to prove the "silent waters run deep" axiom was really cool!

Phoenix slept on my shoulder from 7:44 AM until 12:52 PM earlier today. She's roughly 13 kilograms. Magie once told me that it's not the weight that counts, it's how long you carry it. This, coupled with very little sleep, too much work, and constant worrying, probably caused me to pass out a while ago.

I actually welcomed it. The blackness, the cold sweat, the muffled sounds, the strange clammy feeling were all extremely soothing. I felt disconnected. I felt at peace.

But Phoenix called me back. She was done with her apple and wanted a pear. I went back to the land of the living.

Phoenix probably noticed my condition. She covered my eyes with her hands and said:

"Tulog ka Daddy." (Sleep Daddy)

I closed my eyes.

"Tugtugan kita habang tulog ka." (I'll play music for you while you sleep)

I suddenly heard music! Phoenix was playing the piano/xylophone combo that Ed gave her for Christmas. How sweet! Thanks Phx, Daddy's feeling better now.

What happenned, Engels? Maybe you work so hard everyday. Thank God, you're feeling better now. Thanks also to Phx for waking you up.

I'm on night duty here on the tower, VTS Travemunde (vessel traffic service). I saw your nice pictures. Best regards to everybody especially to Mama. Take care always!

Thanks for your concern Tito Boy, I guess age is starting to catch up with me.

We miss you all. Take care, especially during your duty. Regards to the rest of the family!
