Where colors are brighter


Childhood memories…
"There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again." ~Elizabeth Lawrence

"Never stop screaming, playing and laughing, it's part of our childhood which will always be with us." ― Romina Noriega

Cambodian children. Looks like the camp I stayed, after the killing field. I was bit younger than this girl, when I was in that camp back then. She looks a little like me, carrying my baby sister everywhere too, except I had a wicked long hair and my baby sister was sooooo heavy. ~Jendhamuni

    Thank you for sharing. It allows me a better understanding of you and your other elegant posts. You do understand my earlier post and far more than I about SE Asia, even though I am so much older than you and was there so long ago.
    Thank you Jen Sos.
    Have a rewarding day which I hope is peaceful too

    I am open-mouthed and humbled at the strength and serenity you display to all of us every day despite (or is it because of) all you have been through.
    You are an inspiration Jen!

    Such hard struggle, a fight for existence in a situation of absence of law and order and even in such an age forced you to be a fighter. You got the power to resist and survive in all conditions. Good night Jendhamuni sos.

    Jendhamuni Sos, I was the first group arrived to the camp which was a Red Cross at the time. I see, you were part of the wave of people when it was officially the refugee camp.

Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
