A School on Top of a Mountain
In 2012 I spent a few weeks in Nepal and five of those days were based at a small school in the mountainous village of Lahachowk. I have chosen these images for today’s blog piece as they remind me that in our minds we can always be free. Sometimes we are physically trapped by poverty, illness, our environment or a whole host of other circumstances that afflict our world but when we dance, play, sing and explore with the mind of a child we are free. Children see the world with the hope that we sometimes put to one side as adults, this month I am sitting back and trying to clear the negative fog from my eyes so that I might see with that clarity and vision. The world is a beautiful place and even in the most difficult circumstances it is a world where we can find love, joy and the hope of a brighter future.
Just beautiful images.I love that one in the classroom!
