There is something so poignant about that lone table in the room at the factory... like a schoolroom with no students, no teacher. It's so bad all over in so many places but somehow, people manage to keep on keeping on.

Again, such gorgeous photographs of that delish food they keep insisting you eat. Mmmm. Mushrooms! And noodles... always a delight.

Take care!

Adventure may have given way to the familiar, but you have a gift to find the extraordinary even in the ordinary... and then sharing what you see and experience with the rest of us... maybe not expressed as much through your words but most certainly through your art and how you live your life. So may God continue to open your eyes to see Him in the midst of the moment and bless you there.

Oh yes... and the food actually looks quite yummy! I'm glad you're eating a bit better this trip than you expected. We continue to pray God's favor over you while you're there.

Love you...
