    Aymara Cholita Climbers, Bolivia




    “What do you do up there, how does it feel?” Huayllas said she asked her husband, mountain guide Eulalio Gonzales. He replied "Why don't you find out for yourself?"

    For the past few years, a number of Aymara indigenous women in Bolivia have been climbing high peaks above 6,000 metres, including Parinacota, Pomarapi, Acotango, Potosi and the one the most recently climbing, Illimani (6,438 metres).

    Aged 42 to 50, the 11 women gained experience working for mountaineers around Huayna Potosi, a 6,088-metre mountain in the Andes. Their ultimate goal is to climb to the summit of Aconcagua, the highest mountain outside of Asia at 6,961 metres, and plant a Bolivian flag.

    One of Canada's best kept historical secrets, the mass immigration of tens of thousands of
    children to be used as a source of cheap labor. Between 1863 and 1949, over 110,000 children
    were forcibly removed from the UK and brought to Canada. Known as the British Home Children,
    their descendants alone are estimated to make up over 10% of Canada's Population and yet,
    even their very own descendants are unaware, not only that their ancestors may
    have been BHC, but also what this truly means.

    "Getting even has never healed a single person."

    "At Auschwitz dying was so easy. Surviving was a full time job."

    "Forgiveness is the ability to no longer be a victim. It is the path towards becoming a survivor.
    On that path there will be hardships and times where it is okay to fall, but the pinnacle of truly
    forgiving someone for harming you can lead to remarkable and unexpected places."




    Eva Kor is a survivor of the Holocaust, a forgiveness advocate, and a public speaker. Her life
    lesson is never, ever give up. She believes anyone is capable of overcoming anything, and that
    forgiveness is a powerful way of self-healing.

    Eva Kor and her twin sister became part of a group of children used as human guinea pigs in genetic
    experiments, under the direction of the now infamous Dr.Josef Mengele. Approximately 3,000 individual
    twins were used in experiments. Eva became gravely ill, but through sheer determination, she stayed alive
    and helped Miriam survive. About 150 twins were found alive when the Soviet Army liberated Auschwitz
    on January 27, 1945.

    ................................

    Absence. Abandoned places. Human traces.













    I feel like someone who has been captured after his 17th prison escape and is not sure if he has enough motivation
    and strength for another try. Walks in the beautifully landscaped prison garden help only temporarily. On the way out
    the doors open only inwards and the path leads through fears, doubts, insecurities, layer over layer - and the resistance
    against surrender.

    Surrender and trust is key. We create and sustain the matrix ourselves. We press against the closed door in the effort to
    open it. A friend tells me: No, we haven't created it entirely ourselves. Not sure. Everything inside the matrix is irrational.
    He tells me: No, it is not. It can be seen as the attempt to force man into an exclusively rational system, turning them
    into the machine.

    Exclamation Re: The beauty and the pain of being human. Images.




    Beyond this place, the pains and sorrows will subside, I hope. Not because there are any kind of heavens awaiting us - but restrictions will be removed, limitations dropped. Any tiny move makes you bounce against a wall. Every move hurts. Under constant pressure as if you'd dived too deep with no chance to surface ever again. Beyond this tiny world space is vast, endless maybe - to roam freely, I hope. Caged bird, wings tied up.
