Most of us wish we were more free and did things that we couldn’t because they were not permitted, or we didn’t have the money, or we didn’t have the chance.

Second, Sanskrit poetics say that works of art are designed to evoke one or two key emotions: love

Father's memoir translated, posthumous success

This is really big for me. My father (deceased) left behind a short memoir of his experience during the invasion of Germans into Lithuania, written in English.
