the relighting of a flame and a countdown begins...


and so another blog begins...and what may you ask, is she up to now...? well, about 11 years ago i first set foot in the charming and beautiful land of Bali, Indonesia and life was never the same again. a year later i moved there and living there was one of the most special times of my life. i never for a second took for granted how lucky i was to be there. to live there is to feel blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of a nation so rich in culture and tradition. it is a place to be inspired by artists, dancers, dreamers and livers of life. when i left at the end of 1999 i knew that my love affair with Bali was not yet over...

and so it comes to be...in a months time i leave again for Bali. the amazing thing about Bali is that when i send out the message to want to return, Bali welcomes me back with open arms and the magical place seems to do whatever it can to ensure that my return is easy. last year i entered a competition for a 5 day all expenses paid trip to Bali with a health magazine...at a time when i really needed a retreat. i sent out the message and joyfully received. i was one of two winners and had the most blissful 5 days in the paradise that is known as Como Shamhala at Begawan Giri.

and again the Gods have worked their mysterious ways. a beautiful and amazing school that is about to open in September recently came to my attention - Green School. a school for the future that focuses on sustainable living and inspired learning. when i sent my application, once again i received. i was offered a job as the pre school teacher and will make my way there at the end of July for one months training starting on August 1st.

that flame that was extinguished at the end of 1999 when i boarded an airplane and parted from the peaceful shores of Bali shall be lit once again...
