the great escape

beyond escaping, there's someone who we shouldn't forget... HE who is behind every great journeys, amazing places and inspiring people. it is impossible to love a painting and not the painter.
life will completely make sense only when one finds his maker and starts following HIM... that's when one begins to see ordinary things become extraordinary. that's when one sees the great things behind every simple things along the way. that makes a great escape.

"If any of you want to come with me, you must forget yourself, carry your cross, and follow me. For if you want to save your own life, you will lose it; but if you lose your life for my sake, you will find it." - Matthew 16:24-25.
