A Light Stroke In The Sky

As I look up at the blue sky, I am amazed by the appearance of the cottony white clouds. They are spread across the blue sky like what comes after a paint brush, having been lightly stroked across a crystal blue background. Many things that are worth of our showing of appreciation and gratitude forContinue reading “A Light Stroke In The Sky”

How Do You Use Your Imagination?

Harry Potter author, J. K. Rowling, once said, “Humans are the only beings that can think themselves into others’ places without having the actual experience.” In other words, our imagination is powerful.

Flying implies an airiness of both physical and mental unrestraint. To become airy, we have got to work hard to let go of physical andContinue reading “Fly”

The Best Things In Life Are Free

I’m into pop culture. Reading celebrity gossips can, at times, put me under the impression that those rich and famous are leading a happier life than I am.
