The depth of my family's warmth and love and pleasures from the simplest things continues to astound me but never surprises me.


All my life I have been saving for something in the future but I seemed to have forgotten what that something is. It reminds of a saying I once heard which goes something like this "I spent my life climbing the ladder and when I have reached the top I realised that I was on the wrong ladder."

Tran Hung

Tran Hung climbed awkwardly in sparkling stilettos up the steep stairs of the Saigon nightclub. His wide flat village feet sculptured from a life of barefooted work and play with water buffalo and chickens and climbing coconut trees in muddy rice fields.

Tonight I heard that Henry has passed away. May all the love and happiness he gave to this world be returned to him in the next.
