Mark Twain Wisdom

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
--- Mark Twain

Profound... and so difficult to put into practice when you have a mortgage, 2nd mortgage, and bills.

Indonesia Pictures are All Up! ...Finally

Above is one of my favorite pictures from my trip. It was just begging to be converted to black and white.

It is customary to take the hand of an elder or someone to be respected and touch the forehead with their hand. It was such a touching thing to see. That's what this orphan boy was doing out of respect for the hostess of the birthday party him and his orphanage were invited to.

I think I've got all the pictures up on Flickr... Unless I forgot a section on Shutterfly. At any rate, I really like Flickr. I haven't seen how any of the prints come out when ordering from them... but that's because there are a bunch at Target right now... waiting to be picked up... For two weeks now.

I hope someone I know showed up to VOTE! I'm afraid to ask anymore. It's so pathetic the turn out at the polls. Makes my blood boil.

Brian's Indonesia Pictures

My travel mates, Brian and Ayu, have put up soooo many really fun pictures from our trip. If you're interested, you should check it out their flickr site. Especially because they got to go to Bromo. I didn't make it there, boohoo. Bromo looks amazing! Plus, they have more pictures of all of us on "vacation". I don't have so many of those. I plan on posting some of what I've got though...

Also- they took a great pic of me and my Balinese healers, for which I am grateful. The whole group pic is here:

School Kids in Java, Indonesia

click photo to see it bigger!

Wanted to put this up, just in case anyone wants to see some of the faces that were possibly affected by the earthquake in Indonesia. Look closely at their faces... They may be homeless now, injured, or worse!

There you go... a little guilt trip thrown at you. Please try to help if you can. $$$

The picture is a photo I stole off of Brian's flickr site and then I cropped it waaaay down, so you can see the kids! Love the uniforms!

More from the trip... Bali: Sacred Mountain


So there are now more pics up... you know on fickr... wow, I know.

Sorry to go on about my trip but there are so many pictures! It's a really beautiful place. I have to do something with all these photos.

Please don't forget about the earthquake victums.

ON ANOTHER NOTE: Getting your bathroom remodelled is kind of stressful. I'm not sure I'm going to like it when it's done.

That's a problem.

More about that later.
