My daughter has the travel bug. She is 16. She is in Thailand. Isn't that almost as far away as you can be from your mother? I ask myself, why did she want to go as far away from me as possible?

My facebook status for days has simply been, "I miss J." It says it all. She is off the grid. Traveling from northern Thailand village to northern Thailand village, doing community service. She has built a wall around a school and taught English. She is having the "time of her life," she states in the one email message sent to "Everyone." It must be the "Thai massage" she got after sleeping on a bamboo bed for 4 nights. Maybe it's the cool friends she bonded with before takeoff from LAX.
