It’s a new year, and time for new adventures! In 2011 I barely even left the state (I think I went down to Ohare airport once). This year I’m aiming to at least make it to Austin at some point. Hopefully in 2012 a Wings Eye View can show some of America. Until then I will celebrate with some burning incense from the temple of SriChang. These were burning in front of the line of Buddha’s shown in A Buddha A Day.
I can’t stress enough how beautiful Kanchantaburi was. We were there during Songkran so I did not feel comfortable going to the temple service for a holy event I didn’t understand, so instead I waited outside and took photographs. It was amazing how many stars were out so far away from the cities. I often go out to the country or the state parks in Wisconsin. Yet up in the mountains I felt even more removed from the influences of the city. I was amazed how many stars I was able to pick up on film, the image is a bit grainy but still captures the stillness of the night.
