Dream Place

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
— Mark Twain

Have you ever been haunted by a place? This is my place. My city of a thousand fantasies--Cairo. One day.

Thank you for reminding me how much I love this quote, how much it has inspired me, in times of doubt, over the past decade or so. Cambodia haunts me, at times. It was a place of so much darkness and light, so much beauty and horror. I was moved. The Mongolian desert, its awesome stillness, has an effect on me too.
