We are Back

We are back. Stopped do to family. I am a single parent with a daughter and son.

But main reason I have PTSD for several years from years in Iraq. Over time and age became worse. Gradually so did not notice till I had a PTSD attack. Will write more about this to update my previous articles.

Also hopefully in a relationship that will enlarge our family. So till next article.

Botan that help start this magazine is also coming back. She is a great writer and photographer.

Below my family. Kids become older.

Help us get our book published.

Kickstarter an all-or-nothing funding model. If our project doesn’t reach its goal, then funds don’t get collected, and no money changes hands.

Chinese Shrines Phuket Thailand

Chinese Folk Religion

Book will document the shrines with emphasis on beauty .

I started visiting the shrines out of curiosity and photographing them several years ago. Certainly nothing like them in the USA. Coming from the Phuket International Airport on the main highway is Tha Rue. Most of the shrines are off the tourist path. Side streets and allies.

Kickstarter is a crowd source company for artist , writers, creative projects.

Multiple rewards for backers.

Book will be available as PDF, eBook and a hard copy. Approximately 80 to 120 pages. 8×10 image wrap cover printed by Blurb.

Mostly full page spread and some across double page. Printed on quality paper. Will add description each shrine and location.

My Goal is to preserve my art for my children in a physical format where they actually can hold vs digital format.

Info from Wikipedia
The Javan myna (Acridotheres javanicus), also known as the white-vented myna, is a species of myna. It is a member of the starling family.


The Javan myna is mainly black. The wings are brownish-black, and the primaries have white bases. The undertail-coverts are white. There is a short crest on the forehead. The beak legs and feet are yellow. The eyes are lemon-yellow. The immature is browner. Its length is 21–23 cm (8.3–9.1 in). Its weight is about 100 g (3.5 oz).

Distribution and habitat

The Javan myna is native to Java and Bali and has been introduced to southeast Thailand, southern Malaysia, Singapore, Sumatra, the Lesser Sundas, Taiwan, Puerto Rico, and Japan. It is found in cities and cultivated areas.

Behaviour

The Javan myna is omnivorous and eats seeds, fruit, nectar, insects and human waste. It is often found in large groups. Its voice is similar to that of the common myna. It builds its nest in holes. The eggs are bluish-glaucous. Javan mynas are bold and not very afraid of humans.Javan mynas are kept in cages in Malaysia and Indonesia.The birds scavenge in groups, minimum two but usually three or more, with all except one feeding and one usually at a vantage point keeping a look out. If the bird that is keeping watch sees anything that might pose a threat, it alarms the group members with a high pitch tweet the all flee the area swiftly.
