Blog Review Witness Lane

Blog Review

Witness Lane

Browsing through a long list of  ever so “typical” Pinoy Blogs, looking for what I deemed deserving of my unsolicited advice, I came across Witness Lane.


“Read –at your own risk- the prose of an overeducated, underachieving dabbling bedlamite who scours the city’s bookstores by day and walks seven blocks of Manila ghetto by midnight, both upshots of being the eternal suburbanite commuter (a “cicerone”, he’d rather call it) and of the self-diagnosed neurosis of “thinking too much”. If you find yourself unable to forgive the absurdities, tolerate the man at the very least. He is, after all, only passing by.” – Witness Lane
