I stare around me. I see people - faces, emotions, logic, disdain, faith, virtue, anger, happiness, peace and probably everything else you can think of. Sometimes I feel - Did I really sign up for these? Lessons or assignments… Was I meant to be the one to solve this mystery called life? I figure - "Yes ofcourse".
