A big thanks to everyone who was so wonderful and supportive during my recent visit to Elgin, IL where I was able to present my work at both Lao Culture Night and at the 1st Lao Elgin Festival at Vasa Park. It was very interesting meeting so many of you, especially my Facebook, LaoKingdom.Com and Myspace fans face to face for the first time.
It was also rewarding being able to hang out with Thavisouk Phrasavath, who's a dear brother to me and the director of Nerakhoon, which was nominated for an Oscar this year.
The poems I read this weekend included On A Stairway in Luang Prabang and Notes Regarding A Living Heart. They are available in my collection, Tanon Sai Jai.
