Lovely, and they say you only retain 10 percent! I like the clarity and the background to this "pile". I'm writing to you from Vietnam and today we had a coffee with a 77 year old vet who fought in the "American War" (you call it the Vietnamese War). What a sad life he has had and 15 days ago he lost his 52 year old son to a traffic accident.

You don't have any books by Plato up in your pile, but as Plato said (or it could have been Socrates) ...."remember whomever you meet that they are fighting a private war!" (or something like that).

I know I know this isn't much of a photography critique but I just felt like writing this because of your photo!

author says:

Yeah, I got very lucky personally. The Vietnam War ended the year before I was to sign up for the draft. I had the benefit of being military age in while it was part of the only 17 years our country hasn't been at war in our whole history.

My Plato is at my office, but the top left is Buddha
