World Peace In This Piece Of The World.

Date: July 09 2010.

I'm sitting at Singapore Changi Airport, waiting to board our flight to Beijing. From where I sit I can see two Indian men sitting side by side at their terminal. Both have their arms folded & heads tilted back & to the left as they sleep with their mouths open. I can hear a French man 'Oui-Oui-ing' as he chats on his mobile phone. I look to my left & see an old man & a little girl colouring pictures together, she calls him 'Opa'. I look to my right & smile at an asian toddler, who is proudly giggling at his attempt to walk whilst his Dad holds his hands. A Muslim woman wearing a burka sits across from me & sings softly to her little girl as she cradles her in her arms.

In this moment, in this little pocket of the world, peace is real.

To have an instant of pure

To have an instant of pure innocence is the most amazing feeling. It is the realization that we are not as different as we believe we are and that the simplicity of things, that of walking for one of the first times or even just sitting quietly, creates a strong sense of beauty and overall a feeling of relief. Thanks for writing such a wonderful piece. Your journey truly excites me.

With love and friendship,
