The most beautiful light of my life
This was our first night at Mai Khao, the arrival to final chapter of the trip, and at last the chance to frolic with holy abandon in the sea. This exact moment of golden sunlight was/is/will be the most precious moment of experiencing light I'll ever have. If I were to lose my sight tomorrow, this will be my reference point of the wonder and glory or light, and of our star. I sobbed in happiness... my dinner was lost in front of me as I just absorbed myself in this blissful realization of my eternal relationship with a billion-years-old celestial body. A dog meandered about, Burmese immigrants wandered to the shoreline in appreciation of this daily Rite, and the satellite radio quietly added The Clash to the mix. If ever a Holy Moment rang so clearly in my life, this was it.
