Change of focus

I actually wrote a brief diatribe earlier about how much I love to travel.

Well there is love, and then again, there is love.

I quit saying anything about our travels, and abandoned any thoughts of staying on in Thailand when a dear friend’s battle with lung cancer took a turn. He has been fighting the beast for three years and is beating it back, but infection has caused some serious problems with administrating chemo, and created some severe pain.
So the love of travel becomes pretty much trivialized when balanced against the love of people, and I am happy to be here and maybe be of some small help.
I hope to add a bit about the rest of our trip, which was indeed wonderful as time permits.
