If my confidence intimidates you…
If my eagerness to touch you, every part of you, frightens you…

I was gone for 3 weeks – 18 days in Bali, Indonesia (+ outside islands) and another 3 days of travel there and back.
While I was away, I felt as if time had stood still.
I chose Bali for it’s tranquility, peace, spiritualism and beauty. Not realizing that although I craved some solitude in order to dive further inward and put the past behind me in an effort to move gracefully into my future, the truth is – chaos calls to me in a way that makes me feel alive.
It’s funny how we think we want something different, only to experience it and realize that in fact, ‘something different’ is not necessarily what we want after all… however, it may be just what we need.
She will continue, she will endure and grow. And the way she will see the world will be nothing more, but a reflection of herself. And all at once, the search will be beautiful. The birth of a flower is one to remember, the moment we all pay attention to her bloom. – R.M. Drake
Ohhhhh, Legian. You certainly are VERY different from Ubud… in more ways than one!
It’s Christmas Eve here (16 hours ahead of my peeps at home). I woke up and did some work as I enjoyed my favorite juice from The Yoga Barn (brought one with me for the road) – turmeric, pineapple, ginger and lime.
After breakfast, I went for a walk in hopes of finishing up a little Christmas shopping…
While everywhere I have been in Bali is heavy on the “Taxi (although they spell it Taksi)… motorbike?” thing… Legian is on another level. Every 5 steps, “taxi, motorbike?” I can only say “no thank you” so many more times… LOL. But this side of the island seems to attract another type of tourist.
