Quiet by Rachael Yamagata
My co-fellow Carlo Fernando was able to take a few days off from work and scoot off to Cambodia. Being an artist, I knew his capabilities since I have been seeing a lot of his works. As a photojournalist, I am astounded as how he captured the place (It’s my first time to see his work!). Many of my friends and co-workers have traveled to Cambodia and back but have never really captured the place. His photos reflect life from the place. It’s as if I can feel them breathing, even though I am here in the Philippines.
*Photos not mine, only tweaked it a bit because I was so stoked. Profile feature of Carlo Fernando to be up at the end of the week!
"Words, English words, are full of echoes, of memories, of associations. They have been out and about, on people’s lips, in their houses, in the streets, in the fields, for so many centuries. And that is one of the chief difficulties in writing them today – that they are stored with other meanings, with other memories, and they have contracted so many famous marriages in the past. In the old days, of course, when English was a new language, writers could invent new words and use them. Nowadays it is easy enough to invent new words – they spring to the lips whenever we see a new sight or feel a new sensation – but we cannot use them because the English language is old. Our business is to see what we can do with the old English language as it is. How can we combine the old words in new orders so that they survive, so that they create beauty, so that they tell the truth? That is the question.
