GeSAR – The Mindfulness City

I’ve been working on a children’s storybook for a few years. The idea must have been lurking in the universe and somehow, my consciousness chanced upon it. The story is about a time on earth when humans intentionally and unintentionally have turned into robots. A slow evolution has caused a kind of condition, where humans have lost their heart and the ability to love and  feel compassion. But, there is one special place on earth, tucked away, in the Himalayas, the last Shangri-la, where, a little cyborg  girl,  journeys to rediscover her heart.
