Kate, water color on paper, 5x7 inch

Slender, stylish, often dressed in silk, her mini-mobile is always pressed to one ear, as her whispered Thai words flow across Bangkok’s many-layered spectrum as she weaves her multiple webs.  Her father, a Bangkok police captain, has a gun strapped to his ankle.  When she was a teenage girl, he used to take her on nighttime tours of Chinatown to teach her the nature of Men.  Before she reaches forty, she will be a dollar millionaire with an upscale Bangkok condo, a house in Sydney and a villa in Chiang Mai.
