Tribute To Our Grandparents: JoeyV’s “Alay”

September 7, 2008

Today is Grandparent’s Day.

This Joey Velasco opus is this outstanding Filipino painter’s tribute.

Here JoeyV captures our elders’ unconditional love for us during our darkest hours, their caring embrace easing our wounds no matter how deep they may be.

I hope “Alay” (Gift) reminds us that we ourselves are headed in the same direction, and as we age and become physically frail, may our hearts stay young and remain able to give unconditional love to those who need us, as we need them.

A sage once said: Need someone because you LOVE him, never because you NEED him.
