Chendu, China – When life starts getting chaotic and it feels like it’s spiraling out of control, I always like to take an evening walk. At night, everything seems a little more subdued. The lighting, the people, the energy. Even when I was traveling through China, I could still take some time to relax and gather my thoughts. While I was on one of my walks, I noticed a bike taxi driver waiting for his next fare. I’m not sure what he was thinking, if he was relaxing, or just bored, but I found it interesting that he could stand out so well while the rest of the city rushed around him. He was a rock in the middle of a raging river. Over the last couple years, he has become my rock. A realization that sometimes it’s best to stop and take a look around you, even as the world rushes by.
