sawadee-kah from thailand

The last picture of my Thailand journey was of this dear woman. She reminds me a bit of Abuelita, certainly in her small stature and her charm, but also in the care with which she sold me her items from her sparsely filled shop, the patience with which she helped me find the right sarong and how she cherished each exchange that we had.

I'm leaving a in few hours from Samui to Bangkok, then Tokyo, then Atlanta and 22 hours later I'll be home in Indy. My experience was rich with learning. I feel recharged and reconnected and, be it temporary or not, feel a gentler and more appreciative approach to life. I've got a few things to record a little later but for now here is the story of my travels.
