I have sought to capture
the elusive colors of the clouds,
rushing after them with canvas and brush.
They ran from me, hiding themselves
in cloaks of shadow and light.
They have taunted me, the clumsy lover.
From sunrise to dusk, I have followed,
wondering if a touch of cobalt
would find that gray, before it fades.

I've been straightening out the collection of old photos and albums here recently and, having finished up on my mother's pictures, started in on my Aunt Dotty's (Dorothea Page). Here are several from the time she spent in Saigon in 1966, while she was there with Battelle doing research work for the CDTC (I think they were cataloging Vietnamese boats).
These are all at the Arc en Ciel, a popular nightclub for Americans in the Chinese section of Saigon. Many of are a singer only labeled as 'Karen' with her band; I would assume they are Chinese. Whether local or from somewhere such as Hong Kong, I have no idea. My aunt seems to have been friendly with Karen, anyway.
Presented just as a look at that time and place.
