I feel. And, I write what I feel. 

Merely write when I feel :  

I miss my high school friends who became mothers, but cannot be reached now.
My heart was beating by overhearing about my sister’s love affair on the hill.
I wanted to hug my exhausted shoulder caused by a beloved male teacher leaving.
I recalled my keenly cyan-green longings for the past.
My churning mind runs away into faint foggy air.
I wanted to hear my mother operating a sewing machine.
Garden Zinnia became bloody dark red due to a full moon.
Rain shower shake my turbulent heart.
I needed courage from a fear of  life.

The utmost sincerity is feeling something exactly as it is.   Feeling is soul language. Soul language is feeling. But, writing limits my soul language from deep inside. A soul language that cannot be inspired by limited heart.

Now, I reveal these inspired feelings visually.  And I call those “soul essays”. They are my visual essays. Some  reflected my deep spirit with heart beating ; others were recorded showing my broken heart with grief, and the excitement of longing.
