So this is how Namgay spends his days and most nights. He sits cross-legged on the floor and paints. Sometimes he uses an easel, but this on the floor cross-legged is how traditional painters in Bhutan do it. He stays pretty focused, and it's good for me because if I know he's downstairs working in his studio, I feel like I have to keep writing. My room is at the other end of the house. We meet in the kitchen for lunch.
playing with Photobooth working on my next book. Sometimes it's hard to stay focused and work and not go downstairs to Namgay's studio and bother him. But I believe we have the perfect thing to help us stay focused and make our days of painting and writing productive. Because I know that after we put in a long day of work we can do lots and lots of this.
Note: The Honorable Tshering Tobgay, Bhutan's opposition leader, correctly pointed out that cooperation, the point of the story of the Four Friends image that Namgay is painting in the photo, is more probably the key to a successful marriage. I can't argue with that. So cooperation and ping pong.
