More > packed my bags of books and said goodbye to my hometown on October 8th, 2006. I caught a plane to Singapore to take the SAT tests.

I lived in Singapore alone for one month to finish the two SAT tests. Although in the end I didn’t get a score as good as I had expected, I do value this experience. I think I have learned important lessons from this journey before I turn 18 today. Once again, I believe what Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star.”< Less

eBook (ePub): $1.99
John Constable was English painter, ranked with Turner as one of the greatest British landscape artists. After spending some years working in the Picturesque tradition of landscape and the manner of... More > Gainsborough, Constable developed his own original treatment from the attempt to render scenery more directly and realistically; he thought that 'No two days are alike, nor even two hours; neither were there ever two leaves of a tree alike since the creation of the world', and: 'The sound of water escaping from mill dams, willows, old rotten planks, slimy posts and brickwork. I love such things. These scenes made me a painter.' He never went abroad, and his finest works are of the places he knew and loved best, particularly Suffolk and Hampstead, where he lived from 1821.

Paperback: $16.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Born in the mid '60s and having grown up in the United States with some stays abroad, Raj Dronamraju has borne witness to the pains of tedious labor, the travesty of a majority of outsiders too often... More > forgotten by media culture, and the delights of the prefect grilled cheese sandwich.

This profound book of 50 interrelated poems is filled with humor in the face of despair with much wisdom in and in-between the lines.< Less
