# 65. peoplealwaysleave.

photograph from googleimages

in a lifetime, hundreds and thousands of lives crosses one another.
some might just be merely a short "hello",
some you'll miss after goodbyes, some lasts a lifetime.
some might make the world seem a better place, some hurt us.
many are just company, some teaches us,
some gives us strength to carry on.
but people always leave at the end of the day, only those who matters,
leave footprints in our hearts.
all I hope for is that the people in my life marathon today,
would stay just alil bit longer.
and everything, will seem much easier to bare.

# 64. Before I die, I want to.......

picture taken off

What is the one thing in life that you want to accomplish before you bid goodbye? What is the one thing, that drives you, that gives you the strength to live to see another day? What is the one thing, that makes you spend your whole life, working towards them? What is the one thing, that colour up your world and makes your life meaningful? What is the one thing that you would want to do, before you die?

Just a few days ago, Khairie, an awesome soul, sent me this link. It is an organization that was started by Nicole Kenny and KS Rives. Both of them, made use of the long-forgotten polariod cameras to take pictures of people, and asked each one of them, a simple question. "What do you want to do before you die?" They've carried out this project in the States as well as in India and they've found out clear differences in what people want and wish for. This is mainly due to how they have been brought up in different backgrounds and societies. But one clear and obvious similarity is that, it all showed hope. They hope for something more, and that is what gives them strength to live another day. Hope.

I've always wanted a mini polariod camera myself and this kind of put more meaning to it. (Unfortunately, if you guys do have my facebook or twitter, you should know that I am pretty broke. So ya, it is gonna stay in my wish list for now.)

I have always loved photography simply because I love how it can capture the moment and how it can speak a million words. Going through those pictures taken by Nicole Kenny and Ks Rives, capturing stories of people from different walks of life, amazed me. Reading wishes and hopes of people, got me thinking, what is my one wish?

Do click the link and read for yourselves about this great organization and its objectives. Here is my polariod and my wish. What's yours? Start thinking, and make that your purpose of living.
