Light from Bagan

Life has been one big blur lately and I have been weighed down by so much work that I haven’t had time to sit down and reflect. I keep hoping that I’ll have this one magical week when I could just stay in a coffee shop and write non-stop about anything and everything on my mind. But that won’t happen any time soon. I figured I might as well start by posting some long-overdue photos, so I’ve gathered a few snapshots from Bagan.

These were taken in 2015, but it seems like ages and ages ago when I hopped on that plane to Myanmar with so much excitement and hope in my heart. Bagan is a land that glows and shimmers, like an ancient mirage, with its pagodas peeking out from silver mists – a landscape made ethereal by the lambent sunlight. I had a wish to take that light with me, gather it in a glass bottle, bring it out whenever I needed warmth and inspiration.

But alas, my magic is limited to photos and simple words. So here, I share them with you and I hope that however gloomy your day/week/month may be, the light from Bagan may reach you and give you joy.
