Behind the Times
Somehow we missed out on sidewalk chalk for a long time. I'm sure everyone knows the wonders of this, but we are just discovering it and loving every minute of the fun. And look at that fabulous capital E to the side of her! It goes on and on. I love how she first makes it look like a regular E, but then it's like she can't help herself and keeps adding more and more lines to it.
And poor Thailand. The sadness of the spiraling situation in Bangkok is weighing on us all these days. It's hard to explain the peacefulness and beauty of this country and just how shockingly sad it is to see it falling apart before our very eyes. For the last 9 weeks, we have not seen firsthand what is happening in our neck of the woods. Until today. This photo was taken from our apartment building. Although I love the stark white of our neighborhood mosque, the fires in the distance break my heart. And, unfortunately, this is nothing compared to what is happening in central Bangkok.
