Cambodia: logos online and bikes – by Tim Mooney

Friday, February 5th, 2010

A very old friend Pauline Johns is doing great work in Cambodia. Pauline is a regular in a certain area of Cambodia where poverty is the norm. Currently Pauline has been working on a few projects: 1. To give bicycles to deserved remote children, and 2. To help establish a school for these needy children.

Two too cute !

Two too cute !


I’ve been lending a hand via email designing a logo for the new school and another logo for an accompanying activity. The great www has no boundaries. Pauline is on her iPhone over there and has the full thing under control. I play with Illustrator and Photoshop and backwards and forwards we go until the local powers approve what is presented. Its fun.
Its a long way from Sydney aerial photography but when you see the photos of these underpriviledged people and their very soft natures why wouldn’t one help. Take a look for yourself:

Rebuilding is fun ... but can be done without

Rebuilding is fun ... but can be done without


I remember hearing this famous Pink Floyd song time and time again and thought that I understood it. Now on the recovery road from being a little ill I realise that the rebuilding of one’s health is an art form.
When our immune system gets messed up its not just a matter of getting better. Its a matter of analysing all the parts and softly testing how they can best go back together.
So all our education history comes into play and we have to biologically relearn how to be in balance … its a long road.
Hey teacher ! Leave those kids alone!
