It is a Friday morning. The sun is shining hard and bright to warm our Thai soil and I’m on my second cup of coffee. Mornings are my favorite time to spend at home. I take advantage of the slight coolness (high 60’s) to don a cozy sweatshirt and soft pants.

| There and Back Again

I’m smiling as I begin to type this message to all of you. The sheer joy of connecting with you from so far away captivates me.
