A Spiritual Journey Soul searching, inner journey, the purpose of life, all these seemed rather complicated and abstract terms up until life’s canvas spoke through a myriad of colors. I started painting more and more in the 4th decade of my life. It is like unraveling the soul, layer by layer. One can define it as my inner journey, an answer to the purpose of my life, or just meditation. All I know is that,it is my Zen.
