Weekly Photo Challenge: Prolific

prolific prayer ribbons, Kek Lok Si temple

There’s something reassuring in the act of hanging a visual prayer.

Clearly, mine was not the first bold wish to dangle from a branch of this tree in Malaysia’s Kek Lok Si Temple. By tomorrow, maybe, the pink request for ‘coming and going safely’ would hide under a hundred other hopes for health, happiness, ‘success in everything.’

What I wanted was a little divine protection for the months of backpacking that lay ahead. Though perhaps, as a traveler, what I should have wished for was a lifetime of prolific coming and goings?
