"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?

In The Morning When The Moon Is At Its Rest

I've had just enough time to...   walk the mist in the morning

 Taken one early morning when the world is still shrouded in mist in Hanoi

In the morning
When the bird is still in its nest
And the world still at rest
Peaceful under a blanket of mist
Soothed by a mother’s kiss
I walk a path half imagined
Taking it all on the chin
The sun is not yet up
To serve reality in a cup
To sear through the mist
And smack me with its fiery fist
The sun did me no service
There can be no promise
With gaze as sharp as steel
Leaving no room to steal
An idea from the God
That he left for the poor sod
Who survive the bloody scrum
To retrieve from the squalid slum
I need the blurry landscape
I need the world of indistinct shapes
I need to silence the lambs
The silence to silence the violence
And this is best done in the early morning mist

In the morning when the moon is at it's rest, 
You will find me at the time I love the best
Watching rainbows play on sunlight; 
Pools of water iced from cold night, In the morning.
Tis the morning of my life.

Bee Gees - In The Morning


  1. A 1000 Reasons
    One early morning in Hanoi, I walked into the thick mist surrounding a lake and see in the world in indistinct shapes. The air is cool and thick and the view is obscured leaving much to the imagination. The air was still and the water was calm and silence reigned. I was alone and felt very much alone in this world that has yet to stir. But in the distance, I saw a small boat with a couple of fishermen already fishing this early. I smiled that I was not the first one up. I enjoyed the silence and the serenity as this is most conducive for some intimate conversation with myself. So I had a silent conversation that morning as I looked out to the silent lake...

  2. A 1000 Reasons
    The fishermen drifted closer to where I stood and I was full of admiration for their dedication and discipline. I am a late riser and had to force myself out from bed. It took a special occasion and I considered that morning to be special enough to make the effort but I don't think I'll be up to it every day. I was glad I did. That morning will stay long in my memory as I recalled the blurry landscape, the indistinct shapes and the thick mist and silence that hung heavy. But it is the best time to tame any inner demons that one may have just before the sun rises, before it becomes easy for the demons to hide in the shadows cast by the sun.
