Mary Ellen Mark's photography is not only eye opening but it brings you to tears. THIS is what I would like to do. Open the eyes of the people that sit in their homes and have never been to another country and really see what poverty is.
When you drop your unnecessary things, you finally can swoop and fly in vast space. It is so blue, so bright, and so nice, so airy and fresh. You can stretch your wings and breathe the air. You can do anything you want. You have experienced cheerfulness and joy, and finally the bliss of freedom occurs in you. You are like an eagle without its hat, coat, and boots. -Chogyam Trungpa
