Bangkok Bound

Yes, I'm still going to Thailand. I don't particularly fear the idea of unrest at the moment. People we know in Bangkok have reassured us that work has continued as usual in the city, and things are calm. Having been to Thailand numerous times before, I trust the gentleness and strong Buddhist values of its people. More than that, I trust their near unswerving loyalty to their King, a peaceful man, who seems to have had a real hand in the latest coup. It's clear the combined military forces defer to him, and have gone into Bangkok this morning registering their full support for their monarch. I do strongly believe the bloodless coup will stay bloodless, as a result.

We'll be headed to Kuala Lumpur on Sunday, staying there for three days before we go to Bangkok. I currently have a painful headache of work to prepare before I leave -- a logo redesign and restructuring a whole website, preparing all the last minute details for the KSP Centre Residency, wiring up the garden's irrigation system, guests tomorrow (as if we weren't suffering enough). It's mad. This isn't even taking into account my own writing, which I have lots I want to finish before I lose connectivity for a week or even two. I'll be working out of Internet Cafes in KL for a bit -- I certainly hope nothing too fiendish mysteriously appears while I'm at it.

But, if I can work, I'm happy.

The other people in the house got it into their heads we needed better irrigation in the garden before summer. I meant to say I was helping lay pipes and plugs, but that didn't sound quite as cool? ;)

And thanks!
