EXCERPT: “We spend many days marveling at the stars, wishing we were the moon so we may feel how the sun’s lips taste. We envy the non-permanence of clouds – the strength they have to move on so fast. We gape at the beauty of trees, the wizardry of rain, and the fabulosity of snowy mountains – things we can never be, first before falling in love with the heavenliness of ourselves, the pulchritude of those like us; human beings. The elegance of this world is incomplete without us finding our individual beauties.”
