It feels so good to be back. After 12 years of coming to Bali, my search for a better paradise has come to an end. You see, I found this place, Villa L’Orange, by chance, on Google Earth actually. It was on my last trip here, while scanning this coastline for a lesser known surf spot a friend had told me about. I fell in love with the place and we ended up staying the remaining eight days without leaving the place.
David and I changed it up a bit this time, and will be staying the entire three weeks here at the villa instead of in Ubud. We’ve been here for three nights now and haven’t left except to go to the beach and gather sea glass and imagery (David). The surf hasn’t been happening for me yet, but my board is waxed and ready to go when I am. But we are both abuzz with music and art and creativity here in our Bali digs… the surroundings just feed that here.
My sea glass is spread out on the table on our veranda and I am enjoying the sorting and design process. David got right to work shooting time lapses and the beauty that surrounds us.
We made new friends here, who were working on some new music when we arrived, and jumped right into the creative process. We already made some art together with more in the works as I write this. Adina and Markus are enchanting human beings along with the owners, Mr. T and Iulian. Inspiring and lively conversations have been the norm and new ideas bloom like lotus flowers.
Life is beautiful and I give thanks.
