the acrobat who dances through life enjoys the sounds of familiar voices, the comfort of strangers, the silence amongst the chatter, and he never no never forgets laughing is fun... How does it happen? It happens like a dream..........
Four adults and six children lay huddled in a tiny shack, three generations of poverty share the same dream of wanting a better education and thus a more meaningful life. I had the honorable challenge of documenting this family's attempt to end this cycle of poverty with the aid of "child sponorship program" a foundation whose goal is to lend a helping hand by supporting impovrished families the opportunity to go to school. How much does it cost an 8 year girl to attend school for one school year? 121.00 dollars!!! Not much for the average american, it is sad yet hopeful there are many ways each of us can help out those in need, just explore some options. Today was meaningful and important to share time with such a wonderful family, I hope you enjoy the photo's and if something in your heart wants the opportunity or challenge of giving to this family please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org

all it takes is knowing a little bit more than someone else. All it takes is knowing a little bit less than someone else. which one are you. I am hanging on to a strand to the unexpected some say that is where amazing happens. He probably knows more than me, maybe he knows less. How often does amazing happen, everyday, every third day maybe, you should know. Maybe these people know...

Songkran water festival was crazy!!! To laugh at the hot sun and battle the scorching heat Thai people celebrate for three days blasting each other with water, all the people are respectful and enjoy the festivities. As always traveling, experiencing traditional customs is an amazing honor to be part of.
