Life is so much less black and white than what we could’ve ever imagined. I often live within the grey, but mostly I try to live within the mustard yellow of life’s offerings. Akullu is not only the name of my grandmother and my namesake, it is an expression of the many thoughts that run through my mind and the mind’s of some of my friends. Akullu is an attempt to make sense of the array of experiences that have stretched and allowed so many of us to dream and live amongst the stars, while also finding meaning in the fog.
