above rough waters

Life seems a bit like being thrown into chaotic waters. We are deer in headlights because the world can just toss and turn us into a whole new dimension that we have to assimilate to. To understand a whole new way of life is such a mind and body bender. Deep breathes; a moment to [...]

painted skies

I stared out onto the sky for hours. Seeing how it changed from moment to moment. The transitions happened so seamlessly and whenever I blinked, there was a new transformation. An airplane from afar flew by; painted the sky with its own clouds of patterns. Catching the sunset is so humbling. Brings me down from [...]

take a hike

I went on an unexpected hike yesterday to a whole new place I've never gone to. It was refreshing. I hadn't gone in months and it felt like my soul rejuvenated. My lungs cleared with deep breaths. My heart was calm from the beauty. I felt like my whole being craved being in nature for [...]

snapshot and story, 2/3/18

I remember the day I took this. Years ago, I decided to play around with my dad's "new" camera. He probably bought it a bit ago, but I didn't really care for it until then. Picked it up and decided to just shoot things. Adjusting the different settings not knowing really what it'll do. These [...]

I stand before the open vast blanket of beautiful, untouched snow. After multiple repetitions of shoveling the millions of snowflakes from under, over and then walking piles across, I took [...]

communication within nature

Slinking into the weekend after a week of bitter cold, I wanted to re-energize my mind and warm up my body by staying in a bit. By accidentally coming across two documentaries on nature, I was surprised to have been enthralled by them. Although knowing me, I guess it's not that surprising. It was fascinating [...]

the tree

Roots grounded tightly By the first seeds of life. Nurtured by warmth and water, Growth seeped into the stem. Each day, stronger by the second. Taller by the minute, until it stops. Overlooking a city of lights, Humans from all over. Standing resilient, the tree. Feels so good to post this as my first post [...]

much love 2017

I've changed a bit this year. I am so happy that the posts I created show so much of the nature and peace I've felt throughout 2017. There was much growth and meaning to be had and as each year passes, I want that to continue. I am certain 2018 will be an interesting year. [...]
