Three years ago I was attending an event by @theblindbookdate where I bought this amazing poetry book♥️
The book is soothing and peaceful for your soul. It could connect to your innermost feelings and make you feel better.

One of my favorite excerpt from the book-
Values:
Once a man unearthed in his field a marble statue of great beauty. And he took it to a collector who loved all beautiful things and offered it to him for sale, and the collector bought it for a large price. And they parted.
And as the man walked home with his money he thought, and he said to himself, “How much life this money means! How can anyone give all this for a dead carved stone buried and undreamed of in the earth for a thousand years?”
And now the collector was looking at his statue, and he was thinking, and he said to himself, “What beauty What life! The dream of what a soul!-and fresh with the sweet sleep of a thousand years. How can anyone give all this for money, dead and dreamless?”
