Lungshan Temple Taiwan

Lungshan Temple had the same effect on me as it did the last time I was here 2 years ago. Although crowded like the rest of Taipei, each person seems at peace, alone with their private conversations with the Gods that they have come to consult. Tears again came to me as I let my camera fall from my eye to just sit and be. Looking up from my own thoughts, An old man caught my attention and gave me a knowing smile, he had seen inside me. I did not feel invaded as I know some people must when I peer at them in their private moments. I was grateful to be welcomed as a participant and not the constant observer that I have become.
