WHY “PINECONEDREAM”?

About4SINCE AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER, I HAVE FOUND MY SERENITY, MEANING, AND SPIRITUAL QUEST IN JUST TWO PLACES – NATURE & CREATIVITY.

For me, visiting forests and mountains, exploring national parks, being in the wilderness, walking the trails – returning to nature, again and again, has remained my greatest sources of pleasure, wisdom, soul searching and intellectual stimulation.

When I wanted to encapsulate my passion for Nature and Creativity in a brand, at once I thought of one of the most exquisite yet curious objects of nature that I love – a Pinecone. It symbolizes Nature, Creativity, and Spirituality – in a uniquely beautiful, yet unassuming fashion.

Pine trees are believed to be among the oldest plant species on earth and thus pinecones are rather ancient representatives of nature. In many old as well as present-day cultures, pinecones are considered sacred emblems of human enlightenment and spiritual awakening. With that distinctly elegant geometrical design of spines spiraling in a perfect Fibonacci sequence in both directions, a pinecone also intrigues me as a perfect piece of creativity. 

Fascinated by their charm and enigma, every now and then, I find myself picking up pinecones from under those majestic pine trees.  For me, very few other things can match this simple joy! About that…on the left is one of my poems from my debut poetry book.

“A Word With Wilderness – Poems Inspired By American Nature” –  is a collection of 32 selected poems and illustrations by me.

This website was founded and known as Lensdepictions before 2018 when I changed it to Pineconedream. My creative journey so far has led me to some humbling milestones – associations & recognition from some well-known names.
