Dear Manay Mila and Friends: What Ahmad Peradilla posted is very similar to an article, The Fisherman, in the Parables Column of our website, the www.mabuhayradio.com. Our webmaster, Allan Albert, posted it on May 25, 2007. Its URL: http://www.mabuhayradio.com/columns/parables/195-the-fisherman.html One of our columnists, former Board of Investments Gov. Ben Sanchez, also posted on Feb. 5, 2008, his version of the parable but his setting was in the Island of Palawan. To read Governor Sanchez's account, please click on this link, A Parable of What (Filipino) Life Is All About . . . URL: http://www.mabuhayradio.com/columns/tremendous-trifles/2603-a-parable-of-what-filipino-life-is-all-about---.html It is an ancient parable that has been going around. Latinos use a Mexican fishing village as a setting while others use a Filipino fishing barrio. The lesson of and in the story is the same, which Governor Sanchez summed up at the end of his parable: "The moral of the story? Know where you're going in life . . . you may already be there." FYI.
