  1. My goodness, I implore that you do not take off the rose-colored glasses. My god, let me borrow them for awhile if you feel that you should not glimpse through them. There are such negative forces at play in the world, perhaps it is a good idea for at least one individual to strive towards positivism. thank you!

  3. It is lovely to know you Agnus. World is beautiful. Nature is inspiring curiosity. People are warm.
    If we relate ourselves with animals, we’ll get more clarity about ourselves. You have a beautiful bio here; spreading optimism. I wish people’s circumstances were a little easier on them(those who live in extremes) & I wish people become genuinely curious.
    Anyways nice place here. Keep the clarity up and inspire.
    Cheers to sharing!
