Gotta let go of control and go with the flow
I am having my normal end of trip fears on getting the work all done. I tried to remedy this recurring problem as I sent the copper rings and pendants and 47 of the mixed metal wrap around rings in January so in theory they would be done when I got here... “Bali time” prevailed, so when I arrived they were still working on them and one day slips into the next until several weeks have gone by before they are able to begin the new designs. I sent t...

Connections
Everything seems connected lately.. I can picture in my mind the information design graphic depicting the lines connecting topics, peoples and places in my life. It is funny how all different types of things can intersect. For example, I’m reading a book about an independent traveler finding “herself” or reinventing herself midlife and I meet a similar woman by the swimming pool and we start talking about things, she is from the same town as the ...

Rewinding memories
I was sorting through my iPhoto library looking for some old photos I took of the hotel I am staying in and it got me revisiting my life... who I am... where I have been... the radical life changing junctions that make us who we are. For some reason sitting in a hammock watching elegant egrets fly through the bright blue sky, listening to the steady white noise of the stream while I sway in the breeze... it is the perfect environment to reflect o...

Huge 8.7 earthquake strikes off Indonesia, tsunami warning issued
I am fine... did not even know it happened until my friend Marty let me know. Thanks Marty for being my virtual Kimberly!

Tsunami Warning is for many countries along the Indian Ocean The tsunami wa...

Wow my butt hurts!
John picked me up at 8 in the morning as we were going to go on an adventure. I used to drive myself to Kintamani however the police started putting up road blocks and getting money from tourist drivers for not having a Balinese drivers license; the last time they stopped me they hassled me for a long time, threatening to impound my rental bike. They finally let me go for 250,000 Rupia about $30 at the time. I was told I could have negotiated thi...

Thing Jamb
I have swam 50 laps each morning for five days now and tripled my other invented yoga like exercises in the pool. I got to see the wonderful blue Ulesses butterfly by the pool this morning as well as a bright yellow on the top and black and white striped on the bottom butterfly. I captured a photo of two butterflies... the staff called me over to see them “making larve” as he called it. They are blue black on the top and white with black veins o...

Sneeky little buggers...
I called Dad, Kevin & Cheryl after breakfast on skype happy to hear dad is out of the hospital and able to celebrate Cheryl’s birthday at Kevin’s house. I swam 50 laps again... After swimming I took a shower did some more work on the computer and then had the rest of my dinner from last night poolside. I went to dinner last night a a new restaurant called Devilicious a cajun menu for Fridays. When I looked at the restaurant there was only one ...
