Why do we seek friends and likes in social media, yet, we demonize social platforms?It is because we tend to love others and hate ourselves. We either put...

The Sun

Mae Ra Moe, Thailand. 2018.  Today, once again, from a tent on a beach, at 6:42am, I watched with amazement, the sun presenting itself to the day, as each time is the first time. It reminds me of the opportunity we have as people to enter the day, brand new, with style and grace. There were hues of light blue, purple, orange, and pink that...

A DAY IN HIROSHIMA & MIYAJIMA

    1
Leveled by an atomic bomb in 1945, a visit to Hiroshima provides invaluable insight into the devastation the city and its people faced, while also providing a sobering reminder of the dangers of nuclear warfare, a reminder that seems more pertinent than ever in recent months. Just off the coast from the city, the island of Miyajima offers small town charm and is home to...
