On Time, and the Beautiful Blue Ridge

It feels like a while since I last wrote something on this blog. And since it is only now that I am working on getting back to somewhat of a routine, I feel I have to get back to writing again. It has been an eventful two weeks. Time with loved ones was the best and most beautiful thing about it — reconnecting and recapturing that intangible and irreplaceable treasure we all have in family and a beloved.

On Existence And Purpose

A butterfly only lives less than two weeks — but already has brought with its existence so much beauty and purpose, contributed to the cycle of life, perhaps touched even you and I.
