At the end of 2015, my wife Jacqueline and I moved to Chiang Mai, Thailand. We planned to spend a good chunk of the year exploring our new hometown.
As the old porch swing rocked gently in the summer breeze, the evening sun cast an amber glow over the rolling hills and vineyards below. Sipping a glass of wine, I spotted a white-tailed deer who came out to nibble on the vineyard’s fragrant fruits. With the heady scent of grapes filling the air, I swelled with happiness thinking of where my life had taken me.
