On an endless road

Angkor temple complex, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Angkor temple complex, Siem Reap, Cambodia

“MY LORD GOD, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so.  But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it.   Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone”. — Thomas Merton, “Thoughts in Solitude”

Angkor Wat is a major attraction, a breathtaking vista of ancient Khmer civilization preserved for centuries and swallowed by a rich forest of giant trees. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, being in the midst of these architectural masterpieces is indescribable. It is one of my dream destinations granted.
