Coelho’s

“My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer,”

the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky.

“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself.
And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams.”

-The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho

Those two nights we wandered in a 24-hour bookstore.

Two nights in a row, the same cab driver picked us from the station. Such coincidence! On the second night, he greeted us with a smile and made a friendly comment about us working late every night.

We weren’t working, we were just too happy in the realm, of books.

Cambodia the Forgotten World

“I call Cambodia the Forgotten World. With photography we cannot change the world, but we can change minds and touch hearts. That is the reason why I’m a photographer … to give a voice to those in silence.” – Omar Havana

I admire him, so very much. For his courage to document life in a Cambodian rubbish dump and speak for those in silence. Read about it, here.
