One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have been to the southernmost part of India; put my feet in the Indian ocean, seen where the four waters meet, and walked the same path as Ghandi.

I enjoy this evolutionary process of growing, learning and loving. I hope to spread a little peace along the way and share a kind word to my friends. I am very happy to exist.
