An idea worth spreading

Our world is full of theories and complexity; yet to live life we just have to be back to basics and be loyal to our intuitive thoughts. Rationality comes from simplicity. I believe it's the golden rule in measuring anything. Therefore whatever you feel like doing that you know is right, go ahead and never give a second thought. That's how miracles happen.

I'm passionate about

environment, politics, literature, art and design, real-life stories that exist around us.
