"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?

What Is A Little Inconvenience Along The Way?

I've had just enough time to...   witness how a little inconvenience is no inconvenience at all!

Taken from my car along a busy street outside Yangon, Myanmar

We are going for a ride
Me and my friends
Going for a ride
Through the noisy street
With our face to the breeze

What is a little dust blown up by the gust?
We are more worried about the rust
What is a little smoke our nostril does choke?
We are more worried the engine will croak
What is a little standing holding to the ceiling?
We are more worried about our shilling

It doesn’t matter how we get there
As long as we get there
What is a little inconvenience along the way?


  1. There is an interesting proverb in Belarus: a better ride in poor conditions than to walk in good conditions. - Лепш дрэнна ехаць, чым добра ісці.

    1. Thank you Migalayte for the interesting proverb.


  2. Took this picture from the car I was traveling in outside Yangon on my way to visit some of the trades. There are plenty of very different ways of traveling from the ones we are used to. They are always an interesting subject to shoot. And the way they travel, it is all about getting there. What is a little inconvenience along the way?

    A 1000 Reasons (Off to The Philippines)
    I'm traveling again. Will be up very early tomorrow morning for another 10 days away. This time to the Philippines. I had not been there for more than 30 years and keen to see if I still recognize anything of it. But the memory of the first overseas country I visited will always stay fresh in my mind. I was 19 then and like the Red Indians said - "many moons have passed" See you all when I get back!
