I am not sensitive , you are an asshole.
You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.
What could I say to you that would be of value, except that perhaps you seek too much, that as a result of your seeking you cannot find.
We’re all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn’t. We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing.
The human body, at peace with itself, is more precious then the rarest gem. Cherish your body, it is yours this one time only. The human form is won with great difficulty, it is easy to lose. All worldly things are brief, like lightning in the sky; This life you must know as the tiny splash of a raindrop; A thing of beauty that disappears even as it comes into being. Therefore set your goal, make use of every day and night to achieve it.
- Je Tsongkhapa

Merrry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!!
HO Ho HOOOOOO!!
I have the travel bug..the one which, once you start moving, you cant stop…u just itch to go somewhere and explore something new!! I leave in 2 weeks for India…… thought it would be a good way to start the self exploration 6 month backpacking trip by going back to the roots! I cant wait!!!
I’ve been asked several times what I love most about traveling? Its definitely got to be, walking the narrow back lanes of a city and coming across the most unique cafe with the most unusual food…the unknown excites me!! :)
Fewer the plans and maps and just wandering around makes me love everything there is to traveling.
less is more
I’ve been asked several times what camera do I use and it really makes me laugh as I use a 2001 Sony digi cam with very basic features. All the pics on this blog have been taken with it. I absolutely love it though at times the limited features are frustrating. But it just goes to show you dont need an extremely fancy high end camera to take decent pictures. If you have the interest and a good eye the simplest ones can do :). The lens on my sony is awesome too- carl zeiss thank you!
Though ofcourse now I am looking at moving on to something a bit more complicated :) to see if I can take my love for photography one step further…
Its a confusing world of pixels, zooms blah blah out there I must say!
I am blessed with the most incredible friends in the world!
