"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

Part I - The Monk & The Scriptures.

I've had just enough time to...   talk to the Monk about the scriptures.

Taken of the Monk & his books one night alone in Hangzhou, China.

“All the knowledge is in the scriptures”, the monk said.
“Studied it well and you will know all there is to know.”

The disciple took it to heart and studied it day and night.
And when he has memorized and could repeat every single word.
He went back to the monk with all he had learned.

You have learned nothing”, the monk said.
“Except for the words you have read”
“The wisdom is not in the words”
“Go back and read some more!”

And the disciple burned the scriptures
And become a rich trader.
And the monk took another disciple
Who is asked to read more and more
And then some more…


  1. Great images and subject,Thou,with devine symbols !!!
    I especially like the pile of the scriptures with the hidden knowledge and the string of beads around that stand for all theories of deep knowledge ...
    Hope experience and education can help us see the "Light" one day,my friend !
    Thanks for making me ponder
