Asia brings me inner peace (I can prove it – my Fitbit shows BPM numbers that I never see in the Western World)! The colors, the smells, the buildings, the temples, the food, the people – everything feels like a comforting blanket and I feel strangely safe and calm. I can spend hours in temples and gardens looking at the many faces of Deities of the East. I still have not figured out if I prefer the Japanese version of the Buddha or that of Southeast Asia. Regardless of the origins, they are all very photogenic!
