Every person you encounter in your life is a reflection of yourself; I have learned this over the course of my lifetime, especially in the past few years. I had a much needed reminder in 2010 when I boarded a flight from LA to Bangkok, about two weeks after my ex-wife told me it was time to go our separate ways.
We didn’t introduce ourselves, but we exchanged our stories. He was a businessman working in the textiles industry in Southern India and was returning to Asia after some business meetings in Mexico and the States. I was a travel journalist on my way to Bangkok to cover the 50th anniversary of the Tourism Authority of Thailand and Thai Airways International.
