Change Yourself…Change The World.

Dear friends,

I am currently writing to you from a wildly popular cafe (aptly called ‘Kafe’) in Bali, gorging on a big heaping bowl of salad overflowing with every vegetable imaginable, washed down by fresh and cold blueberry and watermelon mint juice. Surrounding me are every conceivable size of potted plants, overflowing with brilliant sweet-smelling Balinese flowers, barely overshadowed by a gleaming case of such delicious looking raw food cakes that I can’t decide which is more pleasant to look at. I have arrived in Ubud.

Since getting here in Bali, I have been completely off the grid. No email, no internet, no telephone (this culminated in a massive panic attack by my parents, who assumed I had been kidnapped/murdered and proceeded to call the US Consulate in Bali to have them search for me- that one is definitely a first)- I’ve been waking up every day at 6 AM starting with a 3 mile run, followed by a huge breakfast of fresh juice, fruit, and croissant at the simple but elegant hotel I’m staying at, and then the entire day is to do as I please– I can’t resist getting a daily 1 hour Balinese massage for 8 dollars, or sunbathing by the pool followed by my 3rd shower of the day. Suddenly I have fistfuls of time, and I find myself doing all of those things I had meant to do at some point but hadn’t- such as read through my entire photography book that comes with my camera, or watch all of those movies on my computer I’d been meaning to get to, or take 10 hour naps.

It’s been the perfect vacation, and I’ve been fully appreciating the art of doing nothing. Let the next 2.5 weeks commence of the same.
Much love,

Oh my God, this sounds amazing. I miss you, but I’m glad you’re happy.
