That keep flowing from my eyes.

Tokyo

A 2016 vacation to the land of the rising sun made me fall head over heels for the beauty that is Tokyo City.

The boy with the unstitched heart

The boy with the unstitched heart,
It’d be crazy to call him anything but a work of art.

Just like after a cold, stormy night, his presence feels like the warmth of an early sunrise.
