    Oceans

    I live a simple life. Work-house, House-work. Family-house, House-family. But apart from that, something extra-ordinary that I can consider not simple. I have a wide ocean of emotions to explore with.

    Down On The Farm

    It is simple. It is pure, organic, unadulterated, fresh, in touch with the elements, with nature, with flora to delight the senses, and fauna that enchants and befriends in many gorgeous ways. I see myriads of stars, planets, shooting stars, satellites and other celestial bodies...
