Presentation in TWO volumes:
Volume 1 - Thailand - capital Bangkok
Volume 2 - Thailand - Chiang Mai and other cities
I can't help starting this letter by thanking you – in relation to the last file and also the other ones – for the manifestations of good reception, with sweet and gratifying words that were directed to me. I feel very grateful indeed.
Yes, this is the gift I made a suspense about in the Christmas message!
I must tell you that each theme from my works is defined when I am conquered by it. We flirt, undecided about reciprocal acceptance and then there comes the courtship – which occurs during research – until I fall in love, totally seduced by the found material. Oh, the music, always key, of course, once I'm moved by it.
In this work I am sending to you now, it was different. There was no empathy between us and when I began to cogitate on this choice, the music was a reason for me to quit at once - its melodic lines were not conceived to reach Western sensibility.
However, I guess there must have been a kind of "point of honor" for the theme to be chosen because it was even appearing to me in dreams!
My references about Bangkok – only my "colleagues" will remember – haven't gone beyond the erotic craziness that "Emmanuelle" has experienced over there. Actually, Thailand is a country that reveres sexuality, so much it holds a temple devoted to the phallus.
Suddenly, to try a beginning, I found an artifice that prompted me to escape the traditional song... Done! It turned into a fulminating passion! So much that I have enlarged more and more the research, because at each new pursuit, new enchantments have made me enraptured.
Despite being forced to unfold the unmissable result in two volumes, I confess that, even being this quite a comprehensive work, I could only bring to you the "cream" of what there is in that magical country! Countless layers are just below – all possessing an immense power to conquer visitors, even if virtual.
For you to get an idea of how much I fell in love with this theme, the fantasy that comes to my mind at this moment is that I am saying goodbye, like a girlfriend would do to her loved one when he'd be about to "betray" her...
Fantasies aside, what I really wish is that at least some of the many moments of pleasure I have had while formatting Thailand may happen to you.
Always with my affection,
