Life According a Dream
“We plan our lives according to a dream that came to us in our childhood, and we find that life alters our plans.
And yet, at the end, from a rare height, we also see that our dream was our fate.
It’s just that providence had other ideas as to how we would get there.
Destiny plans a different route, or turns the dream around, as if it were a riddle, and fulfills the dream in ways we couldn’t have expected.”
(Ben Okri – Nigerian author, 1959)
I met this boy last Saturday on a ghat along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras).
He asked for a picture, I did several and I showed him, then he asked for chocolate and I gave him a candy which was kept in my pocket.
Deep in his eyes there is my reflection as I was holding the camera.
