Eric Arnow has his own web site now. For years I've been putting his letters from Asia here. From now on they'll go on his site, the Bumble Buddhist which also now has all the previous ones from cuke and photos more. - dc

Dear Friends:

I have about a hundred pictures and its hard to choose the best. Since it takes so long to load, I picked the one that is one I like the best.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, this would be it.

At the end of the '30's version of King Kong, the commentator noted that the beautiful woman that captured King Kong's heart was what got him, not the airplane sent to destroy him.

"Oh, wasn't the airplane, it was Beauty that killed the beast"

Gandhi once said it wasn't his intention to bring the British to their knees, but to their senses.

In that spirit, I offer this picture.

As they say in Thailand,

With Metta (Lovingkindess)
