This experience called life

by anjayoga

Are you enjoying this experience called life? As I was promenading (aka going for my daily walk on the beach) a random person called out to me (is there such a thing as random?). He was sat on a bench rolling a cigarette (or perhaps a spliff) with a bottle of red next to him. […]

Finding light within the darkness
