A Good Day Too


Into the experimental work.

I awoke to reading that four of the 12 Thai boys had already been rescued from their watery trap. The cave. The flooded cave.

Now, that’s the way to start a day. For them. For us. For me.

If you are human you have no choice but offer up prayers, good thoughts or whatever it is you do. For the boys and their coach. And, for all the rescuers who arrived in Thailand from all points around the globe. As I read somewhere, sometimes super heroes don’t wear capes. They wear diving gear.

You know what I think. The work is the prayer.

I started to make a kind of art. My kind. It’s about water. Just like the water in the cave. It is a version of the same take that I showed you a few days ago. After a very hard rain. A big storm. But, this time I tinkered with the original picture. A lot. It took a while to get to this point.

There are still 8 boys and their coach to be rescued. According to what I’ve read, this should happen in the next two days. Hopefully, nature will cooperate just a little. Southeast Asian weather is like ours down here in the swamp, times about three. It’s hot, humid and very stormy. I believe there is a race against time and nature.

Please continue doing whatever it is you do. I will.

I promise.

  1. My husband and I have been following the news about the Thai boys, too, and doing a lot of praying. Now there is the danger of monsoons approaching soon. Extra prayers for them from us.

    About your photo. Interesting. I like it.

    1. I think the whole world is watching. I happy to see the global response. The recuse team now appears to be made up of Thais, Brits, Aussies and a few Americans.

      Thank you about the picture. After a billion years a photographer I’m trying to find a different path. 🙂
