"It’s no secret that I favour slow living—taking my time to enjoy everything surrounding me and breathing the moment in. I guess nature plays a huge role in my attempt to live this kind of lifestyle because of the calm feeling it gives. It almost always seems to lure me in. Being surrounded by abundant greenery, trees that have been around for more than a century, and flowers with no names reminds me to take my time and live in the moment because most often than not, nature leaves me captivated, almost like being in a clear haze, if there is such thing. Life is meant to unfold gracefully and at its own pace after all.
Visiting Sonya’s Garden allowed me to embrace this feeling and temporarily live out this daydream."
