[Carnet de Voyage] - In the Land of Smiles.
A brief but nice encounter with some young monks. Their friendliness strongly contrasted with the bad temper of one of the temple's dogs. He was ready to attack me while I was taking the picture! Talk about shooting under pressure 😂 📷 #leicam6 // 🎞 Kodak #ektar100
🌎 Chiang Mai - Thailand
After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t mean security.
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
And you learn to build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn…
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure…
That you really are strong
And you really do have worth…
And you learn and learn…
With every good-bye you learn. ~Jorge Luis Borges~
