Inspiration & Dedications from My Vacation

Dear Silliest of Silly Ones,
May this post find you smiling about something, anything. 
And now, I'll bring back some photos from Bali. 

Can you believe this voluptuous woman was once a tree? Incredible artists, those Balinese wood carvers. Debra and your Rare One, this one's for you. I just thought you'd appreciate it as much as I do. Or more.  

Young, talented dancers. Holli, for you, for the love of dance.

For our dear friend, Janie Junebug. The quote behind me: "If we never stress, then we will never succeed."

I'll stop here.
Take good care of YOU!
Til next time.

  1. Good thing there weren't any knots on that tree. Was it a hardwood?

    1. Haha. I imagine that wood was extremely hard. Don't you?
      Thanks, Alex.

  2. I read 'incredible artists' as 'incredible tits' and I thought to myself: yes, yes they are.

    I have never wanted to grope wood before, until now.

    1. For a father, you sure have a dirty mind. That's why I like you, PTM. And I kinda wanted to grope that wood myself.

    2. This comment reminds me of the statue-groping scene in Blazing Saddles.

    3. Though I didn't see that movie, my perverse brain is very happy with the visual.

    1. Yeah, um, maybe I need to re-think the validity of that quote. =)
      Thanks, Mitchell.

  5. Thank you, Robyn! We have printed the photo, blown it up to poster size and hung it on the bedroom wall for inspiration!

    I wish MY boobs were still that perky, LOL!

    1. Perfect, Debra! May the inspiration begin!
      My boobs were never that perky. Damn. Those are glorious. I wonder who modeled for it. I'm envious.

  6. Stress equals success? Why am I not more successful then? LOL

    1. Their dancing was really mature and impressive, Connie.

      Aww, thanks for complimenting my smile. I was truly happy and relaxed in Bali. I still have reasons to smile, of course, but being in such a haven made smiling my default.

  11. Did you climb a volcano (or am I the only one who travels to Indonesia to climb volcanoes?).

    1. I didn't do anything that adventuresome. I met a couple that did, though. They got up at 4am or so and climbed a volcano during a forceful storm, the land falling out under their feet. They're Canadians, and glad to have that story to go home with.

  12. Well I never thought wood could cause wood before but...

  13. You look awesome and it sounds like you're having a wonderful time. Love the quote, the dancers and the sculpture.

  14. That wooden carving....
    By the way, happy belated Passover.
    I still think the "Ten Commandments" is a Passover flick.
    So let it be written, so let it be done.

    1. Don't mistake the Ten Commandments with the original ones written by Monte Python, Al.
