hear ye, here ye

greetings from Bali!

But that's not what this post is about.

This post is my one chance to re-invent, re-vamp and re-introduce my blog! New and Improved! (and as someone once quipped, how can it be improved if it is new??)

A good friend once told me my blog was boring. And that is probably the best comment I have ever gotten about it. It has only taken me two years, but this blog is headed in a new direction. I have finally come to the realization that I don't have the patience nor desire to sit around and blog about everything that is happening. I have tried, and it just isn't me. The whole thing becomes a chore, and then something on my 'to-do' list I haven't done, and then a worry and then and then and then. And that's not what I am doing this for.

I'm blogging so my friends and family (and anyone else who wants - hellloooo internet...net...net...) can get a glimpse at my travels. And because I actually enjoy writing, when the mood hits. :) However, we don't want this to turn into one of Uncle Peter's infamous slide shows. I always enjoyed them (honestly!) but they have become the stuff of family lore...to the point that someone may have broken the slide projector on purpose. Maybe. Thank goodness that the internet allows you to have A.D.D. on your own without offending your presenter! HEY WAIT!! - WHERE ARE YOU GOING?!

My friend Val suggested I talk about traveling for real, and the things that happen that aren't available in a guidebook...that's what makes it interesting after all. If it was just like the guidebook I would never need to go anywhere other than the library. :)

SO - here's to adventure, here's to silliness, here's to FUN!
see you next Thursday!

Slainte! (in honor of March 17)
