“If I can make songs that are honest and vulnerable - that are real - that’ll hit everybody. I mean, everybody’s affected by the same core emotions, right? We all kind of feel the same feelings. Is it just some kind of generic pop song, or is it something that really grabs you and moves you emotionally and makes you feel something? That’s the pinnacle of music right there, is to make something that moves people and that’s what I [want to] do for the rest of my life.” — Reed Deming in our August issue.

Paris Syndrome: a transient mental disorder exhibited by foreigners (particularly Japanese) visiting Paris, as a result of extreme shock derived from their discovery they Paris is not what they had expected it to be.
it is in moments like these that im reminded of the transience of life. i am grateful that i made the long trip down to visit you, that i understand your words a little better every time we meet, and for hugging you at least three times as you wished me well.
the natural arches of canyonlands is something that you just have to see for yourself, it's an absolutely wild sight!! I mean sure they're flooded with tourists but even that doesn't take away from the sheer beauty of these things
The sun is shining above me helping me see clearly, the blue sky is blanketing me from outer harm, the river is humming the hypnotic tune in my ears, the wind is constantly kissing me and the mountains are holding me in its arms. I call this real happiness; money, it is just an illusion.
INR 4500 is what I spent during my month stay in the blissful Himalayas including all the travel from Delhi and then again back to the chaos. Local buses, hitchhiking, trekking and walking were the choices that I made to wander around in the mountains. For staying I pitched a tent wherever free accommodation was not available. By free accommodation I mean either staying with the Gaddis(local shepherds) or in some local people's houses who were kind enough to let us stay and eat with them charging nothing for their humble services. Living this life of a drifter was my best experience till today. Not even for a single day did I feel tired as the clean Himalayan atmosphere had filled my lungs with fresh air and the sweet pristine water had quenched all my thirst. Through my journey around these blessed region I learnt a lot about the vibrant culture and lifestyles of these local peoples. Met so many interesting travelers full with different stories to tell, eventually few strangers had become real close to me because we had similar perceptions about a wide ranging topics. I will soon get back to this life again, with only the basic amenities to support myself and no auxiliary demands, with no comparing or judging around and surrounded by abundant love and care. I shall unite with the ever patient nature, turn into ashes and pay my debts back.
