For some reason, your #s 3 and 4 didn’t show up for me. Just empty spaces. But regardless, I’m sure it was difficult to say goodbye to Bali. So peaceful. Then again, it’s always a treat to get back to our own beds. 🙂
The 3 and 4s or for that matter 1 and 2 were not supposed to do or say anything at all. They just came about on their own accord. A bit puzzling. I did not number anything and I can’t delete them either. Strange!
Yes, own bed is nice but so was our bed in Bali.
The vegetation in Bali must be so lush! Love your descriptions.
and your photos, Gerard. It is interesting how things change on WP all by itself, I wonder at it too! Selamat tinggal, terima kasih, sound so warm and friendly! Well done for sharing this culture with us too!
Yes, Bali is so lush you put a stick in the ground and it will grow. The people also take great care in making things very beautiful. This is part of their Hindu culture. Everything is decorated but not just shoddy or kitschy, not a plastic flower or plant in sight anywhere.
I think you write very well, Gerard. It’s never too late to write a book. My step-mother is writing her first novel and she’s the same age as you. Clearly you are both very on trend! I’m delighted that you had a happy time in Bali, have you thought any more about going to stay there for longer?
I will get going on my biography again soon. We will try and stay longer next time. ‘A dipping of our toes again’, after all the sad events over the last couple of years. It takes time!
How are you both?
I love to read your posts, Gerard. I don’t always get notified when a new post has arrived. As usual, I did respond with “like” to this post, however it does not seem to open up properly. Some others do not open up either. Maybe they are going to rectify it eventually.
I am impressed that you have 712 print outs of your posts. I stopped printing my posts a long time ago. I should really take it up again to make sure my descendants can eventually find what I have written.
A book? There are already millions and millions of people to be admired for getting their writing published as a book. How many books are worth keeping in the long run? May the best books survive into the future!
