tiempo con tiempo

What I look to forward most this week is dinner with Dr. Edith Tiempo who'll be in town briefly to accept an award. I got a text from Susan Lara and then this email from Krip Yuson:

On Thursday, June 22, Dr. Edith L. Tiempo, National Artist for Literature and Mom E. to us all, will receive the Gatpuno Antonio Villegas award from the Manila Mayor as part of the Gabi ng Parangal for the Patnubay ng Sining at Kalinangan awardees at Manila City Hall.

Mario Miclat is the Literature or Panitikan awardee this year, while Elynia Ruth Mabanglo is the Tanging Pagkilala awardee. Mom Edith’s award is one of the three special awards other than the regular Patnubay awards that go to winners for each genre.

The invitational Parangal starts at 6pm and will likely end by 8pm, at which time Mom’s special entourage or cordon sanitaire — composed of her official escort Atty Ernesto Superal Yee, together with Dr. Marjorie Evasco, Susan Lara and Danny Reyes, and security agents Dr. Jimmy Abad and Col. Krip Yuson — shall convoy to Penguin Gallery Café on Remedios st., off Remedios Circle, in Malate.

KKB dinner and drinks will follow, with Mom possibly holding court to receive your felicitations should you wish to join the merrymaking. It may be brief, however, with Mom Edith’s presence possibly lasting only until 10:30pm, as she and Atty. Yee have to take the dawn flight back to Dumaguete on Friday.

Dumaguete workshop fellows of all batches and ages are most welcome to join the Penguin get-together the following night.

Come one come all.

A double dose of Mom in the span of year - certainly not to be missed.
