Their smiles were so sweet that I decided to turn the plumeria and hibiscus flowers behind their ears into a shower of blessings.

So nice to hear from you. I'm glad you finally found where your photo came from. I didn't know my photo had appeared in any papers. I took the picture when you and your friends were warming up at the side of a tent. You probably don't remember me doing it as you were all so focused on your practice.
If you don't mind helping me track down some of the people in some of the other photos, could you email me at email@example.com? You might know some of them and I have been asked to grant permission to publish their photos in some social studies books here in the U.S. but I have had to say no to the publishers as I need their permission first. It would be great if you can help me get in touch with them. Anyhow, if you can help, please send me an email.
i am totally sorry about the year late reply. but sure my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know if i can be of assistance to you. apologies for the super late reply :)
