Days are Emeralds

"Never underestimate human suffering", I once heard, "for each of us expresses pain differently" As I am growing by day, I see that we all suffer differently. I am now listening to the sound of movement, the whispers of silence and the quiet sway of the breeze. I see that the days are like precious... Continue Reading →

The Heart Decides
