KCAT CAN: Silence

...finally came to realize and accept to live in a silent world. My world was full of silence, but with the love and affection that surround me, deafness did not become a hindrance in living life to the fullest.

I posted this question on my Facebook wall: How would you react if one day you woke up in world full of silence, deafness. How would you feel? What would you do?

I am living in silence, but I am not silent

I was thinking about what my topic will be for my next column in MB.. Since my cochlear implant isn't working so well the last few weeks, it's like I'm deaf again. Haha. And then I decided, my topic will be: about me being deaf.

I was recalling what I felt before, when I learned that there is a possibility I might go deaf & when that happened. I just learned that I have increasing brain tumors (tumors, meaning more than one ;P) and now I'm going deaf.. But my reaction was: OK. That didn't change a thing. Just read my column today. Haha ;P

While I was hanging out with my life-long friends, Kathreen uttered out of the blue “Ang layo na ng narating mo KCat!”

I replied, “Huh? Hindi naman ako nakakalakad, nandito lang ako sa bahay.”

Everyone laughed.

At Ito Ang Kwento Ko!

Last July 7, I received this text message:

"Hi Ms. Kcat! This is Arvic Tolentino. I'm currently doing research and I read an article about you online in Manila Bulletin which really interests me because of your strong outlook in life. Would it be possible po for an interview?"

KCAT CAN: Life is the Reason

My 2nd column:

Life is the reason
by Maria Kathrina Lopez Yarza
July 12, 2010

My friend Armin texted me the other night with this: “Eve-rything has a reason di ba? Minsan hindi lang dumadating kaagad, di ba?”

I asked him why he was asking that and he said he was just in deep thought about things.

Indeed, everything happens for a reason and we get to find out these reasons as we go on with our lives. We discover that everything is connected.

KCAT CAN: An Examined Life

My 1st Column on Manila Bulletin:

An Examined Life
by Maria Kathrina Lopez Yarza
July 5, 2010

I can’t walk, can’t move my left arm and hand, can’t smile, can’t hear — but there are a lot more things that I can do!

Life is tough, there are pains, struggles and hardships, but life is beautiful no matter what... and I am claiming it!
