    I recently learned that hand washing dishes actually uses more water than using the dishwasher - totally would have expected the opposite! Keeping this in mind from now on.

    "Our great national parks" narrated by President Obama. I learned about how special kind of monkeys migrate to a forest covered with dangerous sharp stone mountains for food/trees that are preserved in winter when other forests are dry and leafless. Crucial for survival of these monkeys, some of them near to extinct already.

    Art is a medium to think. To think is to immerse yourself. To immerse is to experience. Only through experience, the depth can be understood.

    A Reminder

    Have I been living? I asked
    Am I alive? I asked
    Yes, she answered, you are alive.
    but, not sure of the five.

    Music plays in the background, only mild beats make it through,
    The tune lost its way, only vibrations flew.
    Open are the eyes, but they rarely see.
    Images are vague, lost is the glee.
    Fresh air in breath, yet you hardly smell.
    However, the intense ones you can tell.
    You touch and don’t even wonder, where is the feel?
    The warm mist, cool breeze, it used to be.
    Meal on the table, a scrolling finger, you finish the plate,
    But you forget what you ate.
    What are you, asleep or awake?

    Hope however persists.
    It is nature, a reminder, that I exist.
    New spring colors wins my attention,
    Marks the beginning of a new retransformation.
    Senses, those five, are called upon,
    To indulge the shining gold of the sun.
    The newborn buds remind me that hope persists.
    Dreams should be woven, it insists.
    The fading cold wind, a slight jolt, bends the blossom,
    Sprinkling the petals over bright greens.
    A blissful ambience over my nerves, I am nature, I am convinced.
    The silence is sweet, but honeyed are the songs of the birds,
    Part of this beauty I wish to be, with the complement of my words.
    In the bliss I pamper myself, and seek the fragrances beyond my senses,
    A reminder that I am ephemeral and impermanence is the true elegance.

    I was vegan during February and wanted to try baking chocolate chip cookies vegan style. Turns out the dough itself is amazing, so I didn't end up baking any cookies :)
