El anillo de Sakuntala
EL ANILLO DE SAKUNTALA (SHAKUNTALA AND THE RING) IS A VERY OLD LEYEND. SHAKUNTALA'S STORY IS IN INDIAN EPIC MAHABHARATA. I read it when I was a child and I've loved it since then... So this story inspired me for the title of my blog.

THANKS FOR VISITING. HOPE YOU LIKE IT! You'll find images, photographs, pictures, ideas, etc. that inspire me, too.

One of my favorite quotes:

"CERTAIN THOUGHTS ARE PRAYERS. THERE ARE MOMENTS WHEN, WHATEVER THE ATTITUDE OF THE BODY, THE SOUL IS KNEELING".
---Victor Hugo

Although I am a typical loner in my daily life, my awareness of belonging to the invisible community of those who strive for truth, beauty, and justice has prevented me from feelings of isolation.
