From time to time there are moments that are able to lift me out of my stupor and when they happen, they almost feel magical. Such was the case this past Saturday nite when I sat in on a friend’s send off party. Meli is moving back to Bali, her birthplace, next Thursday, which doesn’t sound all that horrible a prospect to me, but she has spent a good many years here in East Java and I could tell she was a little sad to be leaving. The photo doesn’t quite capture how nice an evening it was, but it never really does, does it. All the best on your new adventure, Meli!
P.S. I have no idea why my lips are purple in this photo.
