Pictures speak louder than words

Intended to write a story
and share my nice adventure
of places I had just been
but my body and mind are out of sync.

Feeling droopy and sleepy
fingers resting on keyboard but not moving
words got stuck in my head
can’t find their way into this page.

The ideal solution
to get my message across
with the least effort is through
pictures that speak louder than words.

Ladies from Huizhou walked kilometers up the mountain.  A favourite past time is to play homemade shuttercock with a ping-pong bat or kick the shuttlecock lifting up their ankle (if you can figure it out) - shuttlecock kicking game.

Little Borneo Girl had been away.

The last three weeks had been a great time of family reunion and of course lots and lots of feasting.
