"All the seemingly tangled threads of my weeks in Bali were finally weaving together in harmony. "
"It's time for alchemy."
"It is June 25 as I write this, meaning that I am at least eleven weeks ahead of my blog. My life has jumped and galvanized, dissolved and leapt up from the shadows into the moonlight. While I regret not staying up to date on my blog, I think that my absence has been for the best. Now, safe and sound in the nest of home, I can write. I can think. I can look back on where I've been, and meet the eyes of the future."
