Sunday, October 6th
The chatter of silverware being sorted and the distant roar of the motor cycle are the background sounds as I blog. I have been in Ubud, Bali for two weeks now. I am staying in the city sharing a apartment with my girlfriend Jodi. I have been the student, the tourist, the wise one, the shaman and the observer. I am sitting in the “Kafe”, which is two doors down from the apartment. I have visited the Kafe almost daily and it has become my home kitchen. They have nurtured me with a comfortable place to sit, hot lemon ginger tea and Internet connection. The strangers that walk through the door seem like friends from a distant life, as we share a smile. Tomorrow I move to “my own place”.
