We are so quick to mask our emotions. We put them to one side. A fear to feel. A fear to show you are human. The most beautiful thing that the Thai tradition has taught me is to send prayers to the gods above. I lit a fire lantern to make a wish, a wish and prayer for happiness. As the fir was lit and the flame floated skywards, a tap of emotions opened. Waterworks, the opposite of fireworks, unleashed themselves from my inner soul. A tap that was screwed tightly, shut for what felt like an eternity and this is where I realised that my feelings were entrapped in a bamboo like tube. I was in the vortex of the bamboo tube. Masked with layers protecting a feeling that I have been avoiding for only a short time, yet felt like an eternity. Time for another epic chapter, thanx to the help of the Thai prayer lantern.
