Just what is life,
is it just a passing dream …?
So goes a song I wrote for musical play that was performed many years ago at San Agustin Center of Studies. What reminded me of the song was an old cartoon I did in 1995 about an experience I had on my first year at the University of San Agustin — Iloilo. A first year or second year student approached me one day asking the question “What is life?” The question impressed me since I knew there was no faculty of philosophy in that university. So before I gave him a definition of life, I first asked him why he asked the question in the first place. It turned out that it was an assignment for a class in biology and that the teacher had required the students to ask the same question to as many people as they can. After that encounter with the student, I drew the following cartoon (Note that I look much much better than the old priest I depict in the illustration).
