The Elephant in the Room is Cancer. Tea is the Relief Conversation Provides.

Posts by Krishna Desai


I have the desire to be a powerful and extraordinary in the experience of being human; I am continuously evolving as a survivor, writer, artist, global citizen, and most importantly, a human. My cancer journey led me to find the most unexpected beauty in writing, art, and soul connection within myself and others. My writing genres include poetry, non-fiction, short-stories, and spoken word. My art mainly focuses on the ceramics, oil painting, photography, and charcoal drawing.  These mediums have helped me to express my story, epiphanies, and emotions in ways that I cannot grasp otherwise. I hope that my writing and art will also find a home in you. If you have the desire, you can also connect with me at or check out my site:

My scananxiety was already spent on the cancer part years ago; I have no more left for Covid.
