The Bayon, Cambodia

Outside Sim Reap, Cambodia lies one of man’s most astonishing and enduring architectural creations, the Temples of Angkor. Early one morning before sunrise I awoke, felt a call, and made my way out to the main gate of the most recognizable temple at the Temples of Angkor complex, Angkor Wat. As I made my way over the eight hundred-year old cobblestone bridge that spanned the moat, I began to get a sense of what Angkor Wat must have meant to those who lived during its days of grandeur. It is powerful. I made my way through its protective walls and into the main courtyard. The moonlight from behind the complex painted a perfect silhouette of the main temple. Glancing up into the cool, crisp blackness, it was there that I witnessed my brightest night. The stars were like diamonds, dancing to the faint sounds of life beginning to awaken around me. The Big Dipper shown bright in the northern skies and the southern Cross mirrored its position from the south. As made my way closer, feeling it’s pull, my head in a cloud, my mind clear of worry, it was then that I was given a gift from the heavens. As beautiful a picture that I was experiencing at that moment, only a shooting star perfectly placed directly over the center of the main temple could finish the masterpiece, and indeed it was. As if God himself placed it there for me; I shall never forget.
