Different people may have different exposure and perspective from which experience and knowledge are gathered. But to the same person, because of different times and places that things have appeared to us, the understanding may vary as well.

I have thought and written about looking from bottom-up. Things were absolutely in the other way from what we use to perceive.

We move along from day to day, we may indulge ourselves in nature occasionally. We smell her breath and listen to her. The trek may be winding, bumpy and slippery but we take up these challenges bravely and persistently. We may not know what is waiting for us upfront but we enjoy the peacefulness along the journey.

We move along from day to day, we may climb from one staircase to another and from one building to another. The higher we go, the more and better we see and the more minute we think we are. We make mistake, we seek for pardon and we correct it.

These are our journeys. We may start at different points but we shall meet at the same end point finally. Life can be complicated but the end is simple.

I like the way your story takes us from thinking of a small nature trek to the journey of life itself. The photos matched the story perfectly.

Love your pictures that match perfectly the message of your post. I love how you connect nature trekking with our life's journey.

Ratty..This is my another type of adventure. Hope it works.

betchai..I am learning from everyone, this is part of the journey.

roentarre..Taking picture on pathway is one of my favourite. It is sort of showing our path of life.

So eloquently stated. Your prose are inspiring. I love the photos as well. The temple is fascinating.

jodapoet: The temple is one of the oldest in South East Asia. I'll write something on this later.

This is fantastic post, Mr. Rainfield! Yes, we will end up at the same destination, and then start another journey into different direction again!
