"People often ask me how and why I became a writer."
So begins multi-awarded writer Butch Dalisay's poetic reflection, originally delivered in 2017 at TEDxDiliman - and now complemented by the uniquely lyrical art of Marcel Antonio - on reading, writing, language, literature, and the enduring power of words.
