"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?

Are You Stepping Up or Are You Stepping Out?

I've had just enough time to...   be stepping up!

Taken just before stepping up to a restaurant in Hanoi

Are you stepping out?
No, I’m stepping up
Stepping over water
Stepping up the stairs
To open another door.

What will you find there?
I know not for sure
Something good I hope
Something different I’m sure
And I can always step out again

Stepping up is hard (not hard) to do...

Up another flight of steps
Through another open door
And if that is not what I seek
I will seek some more
For that flight of steps
That leads to that open door

As promised, the naked lady at the bottom of the stairs :)

    On a rainy winter morning, we have just flown into Hanoi. The sky is a sheet of grey and the road wet and muddy. All colors seem to be muted. It is a gloomy day. We stepped off the 4 wheels and through a small door; we found a different world await. I was charmed by this quaint little restaurant that the I’ve to take a few flights of steep steps to reach. This compensated the somber beginning of my visit to this Northern land. Check out my blog for a couple more photos and of the naked lady I found at the bottom of the stairs. I’m sure that is bound to get your attention, ha ha.

    I want to step up the stair and open the door.
