Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness.

We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.
