Cliché or Touche
Maybe I am just another person that is starting an online magazine. I do not know, but I just have so many ideas running across my mind that I needed some form to express myself. Well, this is it. I am passionate about anything Art related and what can be wrong about sharing that with you. I like my magazine to become something you like to read and experience! Daily can publish and share beautiful things. Art, poetry, music and everything else that is beautiful in life. If you like to support me, please subscribe as follower, thanks and hope to see you here again soon.

The hope I dreamed of was a dream, Was but a dream; and now I wake Exceeding comfortless, and worn, and old, For a dream’s sake. I hang my harp upon a tree, A weeping willow in a lake; I hang my silenced harp there, wrung and snapt For a dream’s sake. Lie still,...

We know that… the objective world… never really exists as we see and understand it… has no intrinsic meaning of its own, such as the meanings that we attach to it.
