There is something here that transcends life. People always fear changes and find themselves stuck in a clockwork mechanism. Slowly but inevitably. And then one day they look at their routine, at themselves and wonder what happened, where is their future, what went wrong, when exactly it all turned. What about their dreams, their passion. This place is no paradise, is not perfect nor close to it, tradition, mindset, lifestyle. It is primitive and simple. But there is some sort of peace, there you enjoy solitude of spirit and see the time sweetly walking before you. You might be unable to have a conversation with most of the villagers but you can see their hearts and feel their kindness. This place made me think about priorities and decisions, and had a huge impact on me and my artwork. This is the real Thailand.
