summary I approach a bridge, an escape from the hard concrete floor of Bangkok, and happen to eavesdrop on the silent call of an elephant herd marching into my perception. It now appears in a forest behind the window of a large wall. The forest spreads deeper and deeper beyond the limit of a brick and concrete surface. The wall transforms into the mysterious rain forest of Thailand - robust, complex and healthy. A beam of friendly sunlight penetrates the air of an open well and greets the floor of the forest, it enters to enlighten all of its inhabitants' hearts. ... As I am immersed in the forest, I hear the chimes of its quietness and come face to face with the herd of elephants, marching into the middle of the place. ... All of the elephants in fact are made of wood, however their skin transcends the form of a hard wooden object for it is now transformed into the breathing skin of real elephants - the mothers of the forest. Wherever is felt the breath of the mother of the forest the place flourishes as a healthy world for all life. Here, I can hear the sonority of the quietness upon a visit to the office of A49, the office of Khun Nithi Sathapitanonda.
