Woman on street, Xiaoyi County, Guangxi

people live in different corners of the world--- cities, countryside, densely populated centers and the most unthinkable desolution.


each of us has a story to tell about life--- happiness, pain, contributions, gains, togetherness and departure. We were brought to this world in similiar ways, but grow old in entirely different manners.


we are not born equal at all, nor are we equal in opportunities and luck later---one who enjoys being no matter what defines best what life is about. However, it is just striking how much human potential can be un-unleashed sometimes, though a pathetic thought that "the un-unleashed" think so too.


People are all beautiful nonetheless. Many rural farmers in poorer China never come to know how life is like in other places. Yet the ways they handle hardships are sometimes so much more impressive than those of us who have access to flickr. Persistence, dedication, loyalty to land and families, sacrifice and lack of greed are certainly labelling many people's time and characters.
