Vizjhanti: Imagining Truth

“My name is Truth, a namesake that I share with you all. Formless, fluid and in constant flux. I am awareness. The interconnection between a waking star and the dreaming sea of darkness that it drifts upon. My name frames mystery. I am the vessel, and the void within. I am truth, in the form […]

I Want It All and I Want It Now: Part 3

  Strength in numbers Balancing time between KQED and Vizjhanti could place me in a solitary rut. With the limited hours to spare on both pursuits, it could be a challenge to maintain a healthy social lifestyle. Don’t get me wrong, I could easily play the role of the reclusive artist.

Vizjhanti: Act 1

I believe that we can author stories that empower us to express our own truth. This was a gift that my father gave to me. At around age five, I remember handing my father a blank sheet of paper, and asked him to draw a picture of King Kong. He would always draw for me […]
