Dream Catcher

“Don’t let someone else catch your dreams. You be the dream catcher.” I am always fascinated with dream catchers. I also believe in their purpose. It could be this fascination with it, that made me a magnet for having connective dreams. When I say connective, I mean dreaming about people whom I haven’t seen or…

Bucket List

“Wander often, wonder always.” Unknown If you are going to ask me what’s the number one thing in my bucket list. It is to travel. I would like to see and go to as many different places as I could with my little family. I would like to take lots and lots of photos and…

Going Nowhere…

“Enlightenment is eliminating mental confusion, eliminating hatred, jealousy, mental toxins, cravings. That’s very simple and straightforward. Whether you can do it or not is another matter.” Matthieu Ricard I think today was a day of realization, truth, admittance, acceptance or perhaps a much better term would be…birth. On our way to the grocery store, my…

It’s in the Angle

In photography, we always aim to photograph the extraordinary. In fact, we would go places just to capture something special. Something of importance. Something rarely seen and eye catching.

What’s in a Boots?

Last July 4, we went to Meredith College for Parent’s Day at the Governor’s School that my daughter is participating in.

Not All That Glitters Is Gold

I am not a fan of expensive jewelries or anything that glitters. Maybe because….I don’t like attention. I ‘d rather blend in with the crowd, not stood out or be loud or demand attention. I like everything plain and simple. Such is my life… Who wants all the glitters if it’s not real gold? We…

The Outerbanks

I have been here in North Carolina for sixteen years and it took me that many years before I could visit the Outerbanks and see the famous lighthouses of North Carolina. And I can tell you that it never disappoint. We left home at around one thirty in the morning to catch the first ferry…

Born For A Purpose

Dear me, It’s Sunday but I opted to stay home today due to not feeling well. I thought I’d write you a letter. Who would have thought that you, the shy-introverted girl would be living 10,000 miles away from home?…… Excerpt from A Letter to my Younger Self; Finding God in the Ordinary Embracing a…

Finding Anchor

“I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it – but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.” Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr….
