a portait

here is the picture that looks back at me each time i get back to the lift lobby of the guest house i stayed in for four days in Bangkok. A friend who works there tells me that missing fathers and unfaithful husbands have come to be expected in many households.
So at first i had romanticised this picture and thought how much it made me miss my kids;
but the sad fact made this picture of a greater pain. True, where is the male figure in this picture?
What hope is this woman clinging to?

  1. yah apparently it's endemic in their society...
    this month our church is sending 2 fathers to go up to Christchurch, Bangkok. just to demonstrate that it's possible to be successful as a father, employee and servant of God, by the grace of God.
