Asia (happy new year!) for the artful times



This might seem weird, but hey hoh, here we go!
At the Artful Times they ask for an asian celebration - Happy New Year!

Last september , we went to Thailand and Cambodia - both wonderful places! What stunned me most though, was to stand at Anchor Wat , watching the old inscriptions and look at the paintings, then turn around and watch the people working in the fields just like they did 1000 years ago, according to the wall paintings I'd been looking at.

So this is my "celebration to the people of Cambodia" with the true words of Erich Fromm;

" Who will tell whether
   one happy moment of love
   or the breathing
   or walking on a bright morning
   and smelling the fresh air,
   is not worth all the suffering
   and efforts which life implies."

Happy New Year, Asia!

I wish you all a splendid week!

I go back to work tomorrow after having almost 4 months off, because of my OP in october last year - exciting and a little bit scary...

Take care!
