Thai perforated panels

One possible screen pattern, based on the cross-shaped perforations in the white wall in the 'Thai Surfaces' book

SG perforated screens

Rather introverted building- but the panels are interesting- different colors and perforation patterns, back lit at night

Near the turn-off for Bang Bua Tong on Phuttamonthon Rd. West of Bangkok. (I would have gotten more varied shots, but was getting suspicious looks after sneaking through the gate.)

Joyful stewardship

Thank you, David, for letting me tag along on the trip to Prabat. I was so impacted by the perspective of the church leaders there who aren't waiting for finalized plans or completed fund raising goals to start using their land for God's glory. Instead, they are harvesting produce and organizing camping trips. What a poignant reminder to live fully in the present!
