Bali on a rainy day is still gorgeous


Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Because despite the rain, people decorate statues with flowers. And make their offerings. And paint furniture.

And besides, I have a pretty umbrella, LOL!

    The brilliant colors and reverence given in this culture would brighten up a rainy day for me!

    The flowered statues are lovely -- and your account of the renovations next door too. The most interesting parts of travel are people going about their everyday lives (and explaining birth order names!) I'm a "second" also!!

    I know, I love the fact that people decorate the statues as if they were living beings!

There's a great sculpture in Seattle of several life-size people waiting for a bus. And people in the neighbourhood continually dress them for the season, or for special events like New Year's Eve. It kind of reminds me of that.

    Something about taking care to nestle blossoms into the statues' hollows which will cradle them implies. There's such sweetness to it and the action seems almost Zen-like.

    I thank Go for allowing himself to be photographed. Very interesting name selection, I was wondering what my siblings 6 on down would be named. If number five is 1 recycled, number 6 would be two recycled...Oh my too much for my head tonight.
Thanks for the beautiful rainy walk with lovely flowers and bright pops of colour.
