I have always had a predilection, not only for medicine and science, but also for writing and photography. Ever since I learned to read, write, and use a camera, I earnestly documented my meandering thoughts, feelings, and musings in an intricate collection of little diaries and journals. I am intensely moved by words and I am continuously enlightened by music, poetry, and prose, especially those that embody the tenuous nature of existence or are emotionally driven. By writing and taking photographs to create visual stories, I feel I can express to a greater extent—it is truly cathartic.
I originally started a similar aggregate on tumblr, and for quite a while, I utilised it only as a portfolio and shied away from the concept of recording reflections online. However, since I am a bit of a writer, I could not refrain for long. After a week of intense html coding, a new platform was born. This space will act as the heart to all my work and my new Journal—a new beginning.
