“Mga Natatanging Tula ni Rizal [Sa Wikang Senyas]” Approved!!!February 4, 2011
Unexpected!!! Really unexpected, so much so that I already erased my files on my proposed project to the National Commission for Culture and the Arts!!! I am referring to the project proposal I submitted to NCCA titled “Mga Natatanging Tula ni Rizal [Sa Wikang Senyas].” Although I was positive before that since my concept was different, I lost hope when I heard not a word from NCCA until yesterday. [I always used to get word from them as soon as they have approved project proposals]. Anyway, it is also because I am busy with the small work for Metro Manila College that I forgot to even ask them the status of my proposal…I was happy and problematic as well, because the full budget that I asked for was not entirely provided. Which means I have to look for more sponsors to realize the project. But GOD provides!!! And that I fully believe, especially so, because the project is not only for the Deaf, but for the Blind, and for any so-called “hearing and abled persons.” The project is designed for everybody — as it will not only be in Filipino Sign Language, but in Filipino, English and Spanish.
Cheers for the BIG news that I received on Chinese New Year’s Day!!! Indeed! A big challenge for me!
