My love of face paint, masks, and dressing up is no secret. Nor my love for beards. This photo is pretty much one of my favorites ever. Throw a few feathers on and I’m good to go. We spent more time getting ready than we did at the actual party. Dressing up 7 people as pirates takes some doing in Bali. There are no op-shops, thrift stores, or second hand places here, and no fancy-dress outlets. We need to go to Singapore for that!
I’m already planning for Halloween this year…
I missed this man. And his scissor skills. Jonny from Lockonego.
For the first time, my photographs are hanging on some walls. In public.
There was no hoopla. They were finished by the printers the night before – until I saw them, I didn’t know if I would have anything worth hanging. SO I hadn’t really told anyone, or made a fuss. The next morning I was up early to hang them in Crate Cafe, Canggu. A hip new cafe with a busy breakfast clientele – great coffee, and the best omelet I’ve ever tasted.
It looks something like this. All prints are for sale.
This is my church. My temple. My sunrises and sunsets – the liminal hours of magic and wonder. Usually I have the beach pretty much to myself. There are always a couple of surfers, dog walkers and fishermen. Sunday was different (see below) 100s of people created a vacation vibe.
I am learning to surf upon these blue waves. Slowly slowly – there is much to learn. It is complex, scary and beautiful. This is why I live here. This is what I love here. And, for the first time in my life I am learning to relax. To be at peace around other people, to allow and to be. Long time coming Sukes. I love my life xo
And while I’m at it – my Indiegogo campaign has 16 days left to run! Buy buy buy at Suki Rising.
I have launched an Indiegogo campaign called Suki Rising!
I am selling photographs, to raise funds to replace my camera and laptop. The first prints are fresh from the printers – they look gorgeous :)
So many thanks to those who have already purchased prints xo
