Over the next few days, Ethical Musings will diverge from its usual content of my reflections and offer a couple of photo-essays by journalist and Anglican-Franciscan Lance Woodruff.
He offered this commentary about today's photo:
The photo is our family bed in 2004, arranged for the convenience of our then two-year-old daughter.
Hannah and my wife Corina were visiting family in Burma-Myanmar in 2008. As a journalist In could not get a visa...so I was looking through some photos I had done. I chose Hannah and her teddy bears and another [this second one will appear in the next Ethical Musings posting on December 23] of a clump of bamboo beside our bamboo house beside a pond. I called it Bede's Pond after Bede Griffith...
A day or two later Cyclone Nargis struck, and carried away most of the house. Fortunately Hannah and Corina were upcountry, picking strawberries and catching crabs at a relatives country farm.
