Every day passes by and we rush to reach the targets they set for us. We eat, we drink, we shop, our passions fast asleep within our all so busy selves. Look within yourself, what is it that gives you the uttermost joy, the release of all locked energies, you have long left behind?! Do not ignore the things you are passionate about. Create for such things a vent, a way of much needed expression.
