{ Edges of Asia

photographs by Matthieu Paley }

Far, in a remote land,
after days of travels,
you get dropped off and
then you start walking.
You isolate yourself to
find loneliness, to give
a stronger meaning
to human relations.
You roam at the edges
of a world you can
only pass by but not
live in. Yet, it lures you
again and again, giving
you the strength only
freedom can deliver.
