As I embarked on my writing journey, a profound realization hit me. We were in dire need of books that could reignite our love for our cultural heritage and forge a deeper connection with nature’s wonders. Nature, a sanctuary amidst the chaos, exudes an undeniable calming effect. Amidst the bustling workdays, I find solace in my garden, where tall pine trees, tomato plants, mint, and daylilies embrace me.

I could dedicate my life to this nurturing harmony with nature.
