A Bali Month

Home.  It’s really good to be home.  It was really good to be there.  As we juggle with schedules and responsibilities and this pesky lingering jetlag, we try to hold onto the memories of a pretty perfect month.

Thank goodness for pictures.

Once again, thank you so much for visiting, for your gracious comments….for watchin’ the rice grow with us.  Stay tuned for updates on my novel of (most likely) the same name…

Happy II....not looking so happy anymore. I finally found the bungalow I stayed in 20 years ago. Sadly, bigger giants overtook the ricefields that surrounded it, and squeezed the life out of what once was paradise.
