For The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture, I chose this photo from the Kecak Dance at Uluwatu in Bali, Indonesia. The dance, performed primarily by men, is still a very important part of Balinese life, and from what we understood from our tour guide, all Balinese boys learn the Kecak dance from a very early age; it is a matter of pride to perform in the local village’s dance, and even more so to perform in a sacred place like this world-famous temple.
I want to be a writer, yet Henry David Thoreau's cautionary words echo in my brain: "How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live." Knowing I have promised to blog daily for the coming year, I am committed to living the next 365 days to the fullest by seizing new opportunities, making old routines less mundane, and immersing myself in the details of ordinary situations. Building these habits will be key to convincing myself that I can legitimately sit down to write a future bestseller!
