WHY THE BOOK OF POETRY BUHAY SA ANGONO (Life in Angono) CAME TO LIFE?

The Author wrote the Book of Poetry, “BUHAY SA ANGONO” (LIFE IN ANGONO) for his LOVE of “ARTS, BEAUTY and CULTURE” of his BELOVED BIRTHPLACE, AND SCENIC TOWN OF ANGONO, RIZAL, PHILIPPINES.

Coming home to his hometown of Angono, Rizal, Philippines on February 10, 1965, after four (4) years service in the United States Navy he still enjoyed the beauty of the local and beautiful sceneries of the land of his birth. There was not much changes in 1965 since his growing up years where the native fishermen roam the fresh water of the Laguna Lake on the western side of the town and the children are still using the “Bingwit” or the “Hook and Line with Bait” along the lakeshores and the riverbanks of the Angono River where we used to take a bath in the clear and flowing waters coming from the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain on the eastern part of the town. The farmers can be seen plowing and harrowing with the help of the carabaos on the muddy rice fields around the town and green forests with many fruit trees abound the hills and mountains on the eastern side of the town proper of Angono, province of Rizal. But after the 1970s and 1980s whenever the author have the chance to return and visit his birthplace “Mother Nature’s Beauty and Old Beautiful Sceneries” began to change and the Beauty of Angono started to disappear and the surrounding ricefields of the town proper began its transformation to become the new residential areas due to the population growth and improvements due to the modern civilization.

So, in order for the author to make a record of the ARTS, BEAUTY and CULTURE of the “Old and Beautiful Sceneries and the LIFE IN ANGONO “BUHAY SA ANGONO”, thru his vivid “Childhood Memories he started using his “PEN TO DO THE TALKING AND RECORD THRU HIS CREATIVE IMAGINATIONS”, he wrote outlines and frameworks and rough drafts for his “Lifelong Dream TO WRITE A BOOK, now a Book of Poetry, entitled, “BUHAY SA ANGONO” (LIFE IN ANGONO).

His inspirations led him to relive with his pen the memories while growing up thru his experiences, education, life’s hardships and happiness, ups and downs, the means of livelihood of his parents, aunts, other relatives, townmates and forebears who raised their families in different ways and means mainly by fishing in the fresh water of Laguna Lake and farming the vast ricefields around the scenic and beloved town of Angono, province of Rizal, Philippines.

That is WHY AND HOW “BUHAY SA ANGONO” (LIFE IN ANGONO) WAS CONCEIVED AND STARTED AND NOW CREATED AND AVAILABLE FOR SALE written and produced by the ANGONO NATIVE, TIMOTEO "TIM" MEDINA SAGUINSIN, now presently residing in Virginia Beach, Virginia., U. S. A.
