OWN DEFINITION OF “FUTURE”
Future is the hope to see one’s dreams come true – and the chance to make the world better than it is today. Future keeps me going.
The color of the eyes of the person I love.
Ripe mango & raspberries.
FAVORITE ART PIECE
I get lost, humbled and speechless in front of Mark Rothko and Caravaggio.
