Pen Strokes

Why Pen Strokes?

Boom San Agustin

Boom San Agustin

I am Enrique Salvador E. San Agustin…

My friends call me a “Jack of all trades”! You’d think I’d be happy; but this actually hurts me.  I know I’ve got talent and I know a lot of things; but, maybe, I lack focus.  This has hurt me and my family for years.  It’s frustrating because I know that I may be better than most of the people I work with; yet they reap reward after reward. Making things worse is the fact that they wouldn’t have attained those “rewards” without me. I practically gave them those rewards on a silver platter! Yet, I can’t seem to help myself.

PEN STROKES is about giving my life direction! It’s my attempt at clearing the clutter in my head and focusing on what I do best! It’s about loving my family and hoping that I can change for them.

I will try to log down my experiences, questions, frustrations, views, hopes and dreams so that, maybe, the world can help me focus! If not, then at least there will be a lasting record of my existence.  Perhaps by writing this down people may understand that I tried to be a good father; I tried to be a good husband; I tried to be a good person!



  1. Wow! Great goals for your blog. I hope you do find your focus. I can’t help you though. I’m the most unfocused person I know. 🙂 – gege

    All we can every do is try…….and we all make mistakes, but it’s so right that in learning we find our strengths and ultimately become better people.

    Seven Candles is absolutely beautiful and so inspiring.

    Never stop writing …it’s therapeutic; and you have a talent for it.

  11. I have the same problem… I can’t focus on a certain goal and my family is suffering. Up to now I don’t know what to do.

  12. I’m sorry if I don’t have any advise for you, Marissa. We’re in the same boat. But we can pray for each other… 🙂

    • Thanks Perps!

      Yes! Life is confusing! But you know? I really wasn’t too sure that starting this blog would actually give me the direction I needed… but I was wrong.

      Starting this has actually made my path a lot clearer now. I’m glad I did this!
