During my stay at Liloan Southern Leyte, I met an extraordinary man. He is an old man in his 60’s. He is a musician and he plays the violin but unlike the other violinists he doesn’t own a Stravidarius nor a Stentor. His violin is homemade. It is made from a rod, strings, bottlecaps and a tin can. When someone asked him what he can do with his musical instrument, he just simply sat on the bench and played. First he played a couple of Filipino music and then I requested for a Delilah. I’m really impressed because he got the tune (almost) eventhough his instrument is not one of the best. It only shows that he got the skill and the passion.
