The day of the first earthquake, I had said I wanted to take a technology break for 5 days. No internet, no texting, no social media. I was so excited to disconnect so I could explore Amed and get to know the locals, and myself, a bit better. It felt so freeing. That detox lasted only 12 hours because of the constant quakes and tremors which began that night.
It has been such a whirlwind the past week. Everything flipped and did a complete 180. I so wish everything could go back to normal where people are playing guitar outside, scooters with locals and tourists are zipping up and down the road, and restaurants and homestays are actually occupied. Everything is different now.
My head has been spinning – trying to decide what I should do. My heart is here in Bali. I just need some time…
So I’m going to take that detox. I will still text/call/e-mail because I want to inform family and friends that I’m still safe. But I think I need to take a break from writing here. I need to take some time to enjoy my surroundings and just be still. Might be a great time for a yoga class…
I hope and pray everything goes back to the way it was.
Talk to you later. ❤
