Norman, water color on paper, 5x7 inch

Living in Bangkok makes Norman feel alive 24/7, at a constant peak, feeding off the relentless energy flowing all around.  His older sister back in London disapproves.  She worries that he’ll never come back and settle down.   When’s the last time you had a girlfriend who was your own age and white, she says.  What will happen when you’re old? What can Norman say, he’s become a Bangkok addict, needs his Thai energy fix every day. Going back to England would leave him cold.
