  1. I had an amazing time looking through your post. You shared some very fascinating pictures. Also, the poem you wrote
    “when things seem crazy
    stillness and simplicity
    will allow silence, “it’s mind blowing. So short but yet, very deep. I was amazed by how you said so much in such few words. I recently started blogging, it would mean a lot if you checked out my blog. I hope you enjoy my blog just as much as I enjoyed yours.

  2. These are the kind of pictures that make me want to go outside with a cup of coffee, and look dramatically off into the distance, as if I’m contemplating something very deep. P.S: I never contemplate things.
