A Farmer’s Life

This is a write-up I created for a writing workshop several years ago – an attempt to capture the life of my grandfather, Lolo Tacio. He’s one of the few people I deeply admire, and one who has influenced me the most. Hard work, humility, and simplicity – these are traits I would always carry with me in his memory. He died last year of old age at 85 years old. And yesterday, we celebrated his 86th birthday. I am posting this write-up here in an attempt to immortalize the great man that he is.
