Postcards From SE Asia: Reflected in my Seatback Video Screen

I was on 10 separate aircraft on this trip, ranging from super-sized cross-Pacific jumbo jets to 15 passenger 2-prop mountain planes. In every case the flight was on time, all connections were made, and my baggage arrived intact. Kudos to ANA, Thai Air and Nok Air.

Postcards from SE Asia: Mae Hong Son - the Wats on the Lake

'Postcards from SE Asia: Mae Hong Son - the Wats on the Lake' self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) Wat Jong Kham and Wat Jong Klang reflected in the lake. The lake is really quite small and though I think it is natural it has a man-made feel. Like a little lake in Central Park in New York City more than a mountain lake per se. Still the very nothing much to do or see of this place has made it one of my favorites - slow down and be on vacation instead of rushing from site to site.

Today I had Grilled Prawns and Half a Beer

'Today I had Grilled Prawns and Half a Beer' self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) It's pretty rare for me to drink alcohol, and after 34 years as a vegetarian it was only last month that I started eating seafood. I admit, this was a very tasty combination!

Blue Boy at 44

'Blue Boy, 25 Years Later' magic marker self-portrait drawing by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) Still experimenting with different media.. these are water color pencils, different than yesterday's watercolor crayons. As you can see, I mostly have a nice selection of blues of these. Ah, and here's the original Blue Boy by Thomas Gainsborough. Detail of 'Blue Boy, 25 Years Later' magic marker self-portrait drawing by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay.
