It’s been far too long since I last posted. Part of it was from being far away from internet, nestled in a forest monastery – Wat Tam Wua – that lies in a narrow valley in northern Thailand.
The hardest part of this posting is in debating what to share about my experience. Each experience is so personal, but Mine was an exceptionally unusual one, involving another traveler having a schizophrenic episode and lighting storms so violent that a kuti was crushed by a falling tree. These two events during such a time of reflection are definitely not normal, but taught me the largest lessons of my travels. I have a deeper understanding of how the mind works, different culture interactions and responses to crisis and spirituality, just to name a few.
