Mahouts are some badass dudes
sticking together like a brood
the passion in action and language is remarkable
as they bond to their giant like a spirit or guardian angel
suited to signify their commitment and cause
hours of attendance
as separation from their beast is like breaking a law.
but rougher and tougher
not intending to kill unless you mess with their brother
a joy that never withers as their story is unspoken and beautifully depicted
their beast is their voice.
Over the next few days I will be doing a mahout posting series that will feature some of the quotes and testimony from the mahouts in Lampang.
