Looking through the lens, the sun shone bright and undisputed. She smiles through the dawn, looking at my eyes with hopes to survive, relinquish and live to see the next sunrise. After all, she lives to see the ups and downs. Survival amidst desires. The sparkling waters, the residing boats, the tempered waves, the towingContinue reading “Resonance”
2017 was a roller coaster year. Well, I can call it adventurous and tumultuous in the same breath. Yes, you might argue that these expressions don’t quite sit adjacent to each other.
