Cecilia Brainard's 2013 IN REVIEW - pictures!

Wow! 2013 was quite a year! I did a lot of travelling. My family and I had some personal adventures. We had some worldwide disasters, including the 7.1 Magnitude earthquake in Bohol and Cebu, Philippines; the horrendous supertyphoon Haiyan, other global changes of the weather, unrest in the Middle East.

January-February I was in the Philippines. I was able to visit National Artist, F. Sionil Jose, twice.

May - we went to Paris, France and had a personal adventure there.

June-July - I visited the Philippines again and did a writers' retreat with some friends.

July-August - I was in Canada with high school friends.

August - September - we went to Brazil and Argentina.

October 15 - A 7.1 Magnitude earthquake hit Bohol and  Cebu, Philippines.

Also in October I attended the Filipino American Book Festival in San Francisco; and we went to Cambria, California.

November 7 - Super Typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda struck Central Philippines, killing over 5,000.

December - I had a personal adventure and a quick visit to Cambria.

I'm praying that 2014 will be a good year for all of us!
