You sit at the board and suddenly your heart leaps. Your heart trembles to pick up the piece and move it. But what chess teaches you is that you must sit there calmly and think about whether it’s really a good idea and whether there are other, better ideas.              ~ Stanley Kubrick ~

My problem with chess was that all my pieces wanted to end the game as soon as possible.

~Dave Barry ~

My father, a fine chess player himself, could identify with Kubrick and his chess champion Kasparov. His daughter, who once viewed the game as the movement of pieces eating one another, relates more with Barry. At the end of each game, the scene barely varies. I’m upset about losing to him for the nth time while he, at my expense, was having fun.

  1. Community can be defined as a social unit of any size that shares common values.

    And for this week’s challenge and as I’ve promised Joseph S. Domirez Jr. of Baguio Arts Guild last February, I’m featuring the chess community in paint. Locally, it is not as popular as basketball. And if you been in the country, you’d know we take our basketball seriously.

    But this two-player strategy board game can draw in an audience of its own.
