KLCC, Kuala Lumpur / Malaysia · 2015 night leaking into the light
glimpse: CONCRETE JUNGLE | Once there was a life-giving jungle. We replaced it with a convenience-dispensing concrete jungle. But the more humanity urbanizes, the more we paint grey over green, the more we need to foster a healthy ratio between towers and trees in our cities; or else the slabs will suffocate us. When we’re allowing vegetation back into our manmade sprawl, we’re not doing nature a favor. Our green friends don’t need us. It is we who cannot live without them. Greenery is nature’s most generous one way street and Singapore is an avant-gardist, going down that road with big steps and breaths.
glimpse: LIVES I’VE NEVER LIVED | When I see you and the place you call home so tenderly, it reminds me of a life I’ve never lived, a dream I’ve never dreamed; but my longing is painless, my melancholy sweet, my smile pure.
glimpse: TRAIN TRACK TREK TALES | Leading past ocean horizons, snuggly tea-valleys and neon-green rice paddies, Sri Lanka’s train journeys are famous among tourists for their enchanting vistas. But the train tracks have more stories to tell for those who listen: they narrate plots of the people living nearby the rails – tales of beauty, fortitude and dignity, often originating in the daily struggles and tough living conditions of many.
