It’s the endless summer upon us again
Well as the title says we are gonna roast for a longish while over here. Already the midday sun comes searing down, mercilessly and we consume up to 20 times the amount of liquids we usually do in the cool months.
Not much has been going on in the US of Myanmar and that that has you can read up in news sites. No need to regurgitate that stuff. But will give my views on the upcoming events in post-modernistic essay-type poems that no-one can decipher or understand except for 3-4 people on this earth and that few does not include me,myself.
Short summary of what has been going on in my immediate surroundings in past few months :
me gained 5 pounds
wife is bald as was buddhist nun for a week
younger daughter can repeat Taylor Swift songs word for word
elder daughter broke leg
started up local education NGO ( will elaborate on that soon )
I have also continued to be a devotee of the art of making images with light ( known popularly as photography) and am finding great solace and inspiration in it. Will stick up some of my latest stuff on the blog for all to enjoy,criticize or slam later on.
Can you believe it ? I will be taking pics while perspiring like a hog in a sauna in the Upper Burma heat in the coming months ? So know ye all…. the images that ye look upon have been created with effort… much effort…and pig-headedness and recklessness too, against and in the elements that most would wither in ………..
But on this site you’ll not see pretty post card pics like the stuff that jump out of travel mags and nat geo and slap ur eyeballs… No No no sir ! …. only images of my home country … as I try to show it ….charming but gritty… elegant but unsophisticated….. restless,cruel but at peace…… wanting but satisfactory….. contradictions galore…. proud to be a denizen of this place “and” difficult to be inhabitant of it ….of a place of great natural beauty and fiendish poverty !
Tune in regularly folks !
