A child’s sense of wonder and awe is a wonderful approach to summer. By the time many of us reach the autumn and winter of our lives, we have become cynical and jaded.

In Life there is always arriving and departing. Life is both a destination and a journey. We cannot determine our arrival and departure. We can, however, determine how we travel the journey. There will be ups and downs. There will be storms and rain. We are here. Endure and even enjoy the ride!

One of the great mystery of ancient Angkor. In Bayon Temple at Angkor, there were 200 smiling faces curved on 50 towers of which 37 is still standing. No one really knows whose face it depicts. Some believe it represents the Buddhist embodiment of compassion, Lokesvara. Others suggest it represents Brahma, a Hindu deity. Yet others believe that is the face of King Jayavarman VII, the builder of the temple. In the meantime, the face’s enigmatic smile hide its true identity for over a thousand years.
