  2. So, you have a teacher in the midst. Teachers are prevalent in my family. To be able to go to another country while she is learning is a wonderful opportunity. My sister went once many years ago to Japan and has very interesting stories to tell of the people and their culture. I wish her well. Good post.

  3. Ah, vacant symbols dangling in the wind…..an intriguing thought. Well, I was in Bangkok once & don’t remember anything about ground water. Smiles. It was a beautiful and busy place. What an adventure for your daughter!

  4. The way you merge the images of the brush, the symbols dangling an the images of Bangkok, collides so well here… almost like you are a vampiring yourself hmmm maybe sounds a bit too much maybe… what an adventure for your daughter to go away like that.. and what a wonderful conversations you seem to have.
