A blog about books. Oh, and some other stuff too.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside


Who looks outside, dream; who look inside, awakes.

~ Carl Gustav Jung 

This week’s challenge interests me. As with many other weeks, this definition has multiple meanings. There’s the obvious view of ‘what’s inside’ a place that leads to so many interesting destinations.

I’m currently reading a book set during the time of the Khmer Rouge in the rural areas outside of Phnom Penh in Cambodia. There is much discussion about shelter and about those who have the ability to go inside, as opposed to those who are forced to face the elements outside each evening. It reminded me of these photos, taken during my time in Cambodia.

I wonder where these paths would have led to thousands of years ago – the throne room? Another temple? The prayer areas for the monks? Living quarters for the King and his family? These walls have given shelter from the sun and the rain to thousands of people over the years; it’s incredible to think that they will continue to do so for many more years to come.

… or perhaps you are on the inside yourself, looking out? We often forget that there are two views – that of the outside, looking in, but also of the inside, looking out.

Take time this week to look inside – a place, a thing or even yourself. Look deep – you never know what you might discover.
