Happy New Year (again). It’s Songkran in Thailand, a festival celebrating the traditional Thai New Year, held in April and marked by the throwing and sprinkling of water. On Koh Tao island it was thankfully limited to one-day, during which I voluntarily sequestered myself. I know what you’re thinking--girl, that’s extreme; or you’re just getting old(er). The latter is true - we are all getting older; the former, not so! The epidemiologist in me will not allow myself to be splashed with water from random, suspect water sources. Fleeing the water guns led me to a day of sea-gazing, reconnected me to the practice of Wu wei, effortless action.
