Some Pictures Say it All

July 27, 2008

Peace is a rare commodity to be sure. And you can describe it until your breath is gone and people still might not catch it. But when a picture of peacefulness comes along, it is worth studying.

This man is sleeping on a bench in a park in Lahore, Pakistan as the waters from a monsoon continue to rise. I can only assume from his demeanor that he is slurping up peace like a thirsty man. Enjoy.

  1. Love this picture. Not sure that rising flood water would do it for me…but some solitude and a good book would. Complete silence what a treat that would be!


  2. I agree with Court that this would not be my place for solitude. But the fact that he can just lay there in such a disaster really does show some appreciation for what it means to spend time by yourself. I’ve heard about Lahore and this might be the only time in the man’s life he has been alone.
