What do you live for?
What is some of the best advice that you have been given/want to give our readers?
Something random you'd like to say?
I live to read and to travel, and to me, they are two of a kind. To see a different world, to understand another culture, to free up my mind, to taste exotic food, to find my second home, to experience a different lifestyle, to be inspired, to face the truth, to comprehend and appreciate the beautiful plan laid out millions of years ago, to bring together the different maps in my heart, to nullify the prejudice, pride and racism I was brought up to believe, to hug my family, to make new friends, to see things in different perspectives and dimensions, to understand the true meaning of humility, to throw my arms around the world, to breathe, to ogle, to love, to learn about philosophy, evolution, psychology, biology, art, architecture, stories, physics, myths, chemistry....to understand Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism....to count my blessings, to grow old gracefully with no regrets, to summarize, to shout in exaltation from the highest peaks, to understand the fragility of humanity and the eco-system, to find the missing pieces of the jigsaw puzzle of life, to make sense of my own ancestry, to answer to my calling, to not waste this life in static, boring routine, to create, to laugh, to cry, to fill the gaps in my timeline, to practice what I preach, to snap pictures, to bear the unbearables, to keep feeling fascination, to listen, to feel, to be, to read, to live....:)
