The impending rain looming over the, nearly ready to be harvested, rice fields in Ubud Bali reminds me of the gloomy days lived out in Seattle. This is different though, taking the place ofbone chilling cold, this tropical heat is mixed with full on humidity and reminds me of my summers growing up in Wisconsin.
I’ve been here nearly two months. Here being Bali, my new home or should I say launching pad. The magic does not stop, even in the mundane of daily life.Today being one of those magical days. Early morning wake up to the roosters and ducks outside my window, sunrise meditation, followed by a few hours of work.The hours pass and I think to myself, I live in paradise.
