In the 1980's I assisted another artist working with very young Cambodian children on an art project. These children captivated me with their joy and excitement over the images of the temples of Angkor Wat. From that time on I thought, one day I must go to see the temples and visit Cambodia.
This summer I took my first trip to Asia, to Cambodia.
It proved to be all and more than I could have imagined, stunning in many ways.
I was so happy to be there. The joy and beauty were palpable.
Since my internal clock was tipped by the change in time zone, it was actually easier to manage writing at 315am.
The poems this year reflect the anticipation of Cambodia and some of the time there. Also, there were horrors and loss to acknowledge, the suicide of Robin Williams and the brutality of ISIS.
In my travels to Cambodia I followed a friend's urging, and made my own offerings to help heal this country of its past with intentions that we may all be relieved of suffering and the causes of suffering, as the Buddhist say.
Peace to you all~
Thanks for reading.
