Images from Angkor Wat

Lately, there are too many things bothering me, those who have been reading my posts may already knew some of them.
I need some positive energy to get back into blogging, but before that I can only retrieve some photos and prepare some quick posts.

The images we got from Angkor Wat are just amazing. Given that many of the structures were built from stone blocks and stacked together, some of the resulting structures can be quite angular too.DSC_0165 Here is an example.

Please enjoy!

  1. Sometimes we need to just let go of things like blogging and rest. I do find that looking back through photos is good therapy, as well as going out and snapping a few photos of the beauty of nature right outside my door. Take care of yourself.

  2. Aloha, Michael! It’s O.K. to slow down for a needed rest! I was forced to ‘rest’ when I had to restrict my activities after a bad fall just over 3 weeks ago. Only now on my feet getting around slowly. Take care of yourself; your blogsite will still be here with your many wonderful posts! God bless you!

    • Hi Liz, sorry to learn about your fall, I hope you will recover soon. I am glad to have the good thoughts and blessings from you, from someone who is so close to the Lord. Regards, Michael

    • My mom has just been discharged from the hospital today, after staying there for 11 days; I will provide an update later! I think I need a good rest now πŸ™‚

  4. The thing I love about Angkor Wat is that there is no interruption, no discontinuity, between the natural world, the human world, the divine world. Some might feel loss, that men worked so hard to honor the gods only to have their work pulled apart by time and reclaimed by wilderness. But I see peace, devotion, and reconciliation and ultimately all of these things in balance; perhaps that’s what makes the place so supremely peaceful and yet also energizing. I hope it gives you the peace and energy you need!

  5. Great pic Michael. As you may know I’ve been away for a while, I needed the break and I’m feeling better. Sometimes you just have to let go.
    Cheers
    Laurie.

  6. I find blogging reviews of books I have read to be a creative release. I don’t feel compelled to do it and certainly don’t do it daily. It would be work. Perhaps not blogging daily for a while or subsequently will free you to feel better and attend to your mom and other concerns that may be troubling you. Then again, take a walk in the woods and listen to a chorus of birds. Smile.

  7. Its now been six months since I visited Angkor. I couldnt find the words at the time, nor can I now, to express just how deeply the place affected me. It had been a long term goal to visit, and I can still remember it coming into view across the lake, but still can’t put into words the sensations I felt.
    A truly wonderful, magical, mystical almost mythical place and strangely I was only looking at my photos and blog posts last night.

  8. Let your feelings guide you…if you need a break to catch up on life’s challenges, or just need to refresh yourself, just do it. Step back and concentrate on those things that are most important like family, friends and self….sometimes self first so you can be there for others. Still following and loving your photos and stories, but understanding where your heart is……Blessings.
