Day 21~ March 21st~ Egypt


An innocent farewell

We live our lives in chapters and at some point each chapter has to end…

One of the hardest things to do after being charmed by people and after the sharing of a small part of life with them, is the separation. On the trip to Egypt, I had to say good bye so many times to so many beautiful people, it felt like leaving a small piece of me after each departure. It was always the children who left the most remarkable effect on me with their innocence, their playfulness and their natural way of being. Now that I have a child of my own, I feel so blessed to be able to laugh every day, to enjoy the simple things, to view the world through a veil of uncorrupted innocence as children do when I am in her company.

Children are our most precious responsibility, and they deserve out best effort to protect them and help them develop into the leaders of the future. I wonder how good of a job we are doing.

  1. Very nice photo, Mimo – I love the colours! Adrian

  2. First of all, the opening line about chapters is powerful.

    Children have an interesting innocence. Typically, their world is very small, yet they seek to maximize it. They also live in anticipation of one thing to the next. … yet, as you say at the end, not all get the necessary attention and needs because of those who pass on their responsibility to serve them. Thanks for the strong words.

    • Thank you for your thoughtful response Frank! So, true that most children don’t get the right amount of attention and encouragement to be what they need to be..

  3. I love children, their innocence, how they look at the world. They are why I love teaching, watching them grow and learn is a humbling job. Beautiful thoughts, Mimo.

    A new to me blog……moving, beautiful and just in time

  5. Children are the best! Thats why I have always enjoyed taking their pictures. Very soon, I am writing a post on my daughter…she is only 5th months old…so keep a lookout for that!

  6. You are exactly right. The children create the warmest and strongest bond because of their total honesty and innocence. I do hope we will do a better job of protecting them.
