I received an e-mail from William this morning. William is a Viet Kieu (overseas Vietnamese) and I’m not sure where he is from but when I received his message I was touched and glad to get it. However, I was also just heading out the door as I was hungry and a large bowl of Pho Bo (beef noodles) was calling to me.
As I sat on my small plastic stool devouring my delicious breakfast and watching the life that was teeming in all directions before me I re-considered William’s e-mail and the emotiveness with which he wrote it and I decided that I had answered him far too dispassionately.
So William let me say publicly that I am humbled by the honesty and the feeling that went into your short message. It makes me feel so happy to know that the images of Viet Nam that I have posted onto the gallery have brought you the pleasure that you indicate. That is very special and I will endeavour to post more there soon.
thanks Wil, you’ve made my day!
