I’m on an existential hunt for beauty. Not the superficial sort that glimmers in fashion magazines and jewelry stores. The beauty that changes the course of your day, like a complimentary cup of coffee. Beauty that turns a habitual moment into a memory, like a conversation with a cab driver in frenzied traffic.
That beauty is rarely publicized.
I’ll observe and document beauty as I see it happen. With luck, the stories will unveil a morsel of universal truth through a journalistic lens.
I promise, my stories are worth your time. Contrary to the maxim, “beauty is pain,” I believe that beauty heals.
