Blue Sky Eyes


"Buddhist nun: My 19-year-old son, Gavin and I met this peaceful vision of a soul amid the ruins in the main temple at Angkor Wat, Seim Reap, Cambodia. It was June of 2005, exactly two years before she would pass away. We were awed by her pure joy and beauty, deeply moved by the love she radiated. She doesn't own a cell phone or a credit card or a car or a checking account. She was barefoot (we later wondered if she even owned a pair of shoes). We spent the rest of the afternoon wandering through those ancient ruins, wet from the weight of the Cambodian sun, smiling and singing All You Need is Love. It was one of the very best days of my life". Taken by Annie Link

It was almost 2 years to the day of this shot that my son, Gavin, passed away. I imagine this beautiful nun is still living.
