As I journey through the beautiful country side of Vietnam on this train, I see the need to record these visions. The visions from the Artist’s Viewpoint. A viewpoint that I would take amiss if not cared for and not nurtured carefully.
This very moment is Friday; the night of 18th November 2011 and is my first experience on the express train from Saigon to Da Nang. With all said and done, I repeat… it’s Friday’s night. What vision is there to see at night, what beauty is there to observe in the dark, what feeling does this night excites me?
Looking from an artist’s viewpoint, there are countless angles and perspectives which excites me on this train. The viewpoint I’m standing allow me to see all lovely Vietnamese people resting on their seats, yarning through their tiresome, laughing through their conversations and myriad activities happening at this very moment. Despite all the madness which occurs around me, I rest peacefully on my headset with wonderful instrumental music enduring me through the journey from the South to the Central region of Vietnam.
This short writing seems very much similar to a journal, in fact it is an introductory diary of this trip viewing everything from a perspective I’m hoping to see beauty in all things. Through these series of blogs, I will capture nature’s kindness and beauties given to us.
