Ishan meets Isaan -Brother in Thailand
The northeastern Thai province Isaan's name comes from a variant of the name of the Hindu god Shiva - Isana.
The "Isana" in my life is my cousin Ishan. "Ishan" also means northeast --north representing wealth and happiness and east means peace and knowledge. And so we come full circle again to Thailand.
My Ishan is in between my brother Arguapo and me in age and the three of us grew up together quite happily with normal sort of fraternal activities. Christmases, summer holidays, Thanksgivings and all that.
I am really excited that he is coming--he's planning to buy a motorcycle and ride around looking at things called Cloud Forests which sounds like that weird place in Empire Strikes Back when Lando sells out Luke, Leia and Han.
There are many moments that I treasure when I think of Ishan, but I would like to formally and publicly apologize for a certain incident involving a certain bunny put into my care. Snoop the bunny escape and though we tried to fool Ishan with a decoy Snoop, he caught us out when Snoop v2.0 grew huge whereas the da original #1 Snizzle was a DWARF rabbit. Sorry, bud.
Ishan now has a lovely pit bull called Delilah who he tells "to shake it down" when he wants her to sit. Delightful.
I can't wait to get I's take on life here. Looking forward to tomorrow! Sawat dee, mon frere!
