I consider myself to be more of a story teller, than a writer. It is often more simple to sum up with a camera, but that doesn’t discourage me from the practice of shuffling the alphabet. English can be a challenging language, can’t it?
I retired to Thailand from the USA in 2007. I was very very fortunate to have met and married an incredible woman from up in the Issan area. She has two great daughters. Over several years, I was slowly fixing up the family home. Unfortunately, a family disagreement (sibling rivalry) erupted. After a long legal battle, the property was razed … all my work erased.
There will be a survey and division done soon. We would like to go back and rebuild.
My small Social Security check restricts the rate of rebuilding. With your help, a livable structure could be up in several months.
Me … I can live in a tent, but my wife, and particularly the teenage daughter, are a bit more particular.
I intend to build a house in which they will be happy and comfortable.
I am very open and agreeable to discussing the project; will certainly make videos and do a lot of still photography, as the new house grows out of the rubble.
PS: One really cool thing, the silver lining, is that when the old house was destroyed we salvaged a huge pile of extremely well aged Teak. That’s the carrot at the end of the stick, for me. I love woodworking!
I would very much appreciate hearing from you. I highly value your input/feedback.
