The Book

“Yuan” or 緣 loosely translates to fate or destiny.

But I don’t think that’s quite accurate. Yuan suggests that every encounter is meant to touch your life in a way that is meaningful, no matter how briefly. Even if it’s a raindrop brushing over the tip of your nose.

Isn’t it beautiful? To think that everything in this world is connected by waves of intentions.

There’s a pool of possibilities.

I want to take a moment to thank all the Yuan in my life.

Every person and everything that has happened to help me write.

This is a collection of my poems and journals from my teenage years to current days.

The photos in this book are all captured by either my camera or generations of iPhones I’ve used in the last decade.

I hope you will enjoy my writing or the little things in life as viewed through my lenses.

Thank you again for picking up this book. I hope it will be worth your while.
