Bali Dispatch #3: Tap Dancing in Paradise

So, remember how I said we were gonna get a house to settle into in Bali? Yeah, well that didn’t happen. This adventure is teaching me so much about being fluid. Actually, it’s kinda banging me over the head with the concept. But, in the end, I think that’s a good thing…at least it will […]
