One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Accidentally participating in a very holy balinese ritual in a temple in a remote village in Bali.

Exploring the ricefields by bike in Sri Lanka and finding a beautiful, desolated temple on the top of a hill. I was so awestruck that I did not even want to breathe!

Teaching dance to street kids from the slums in Lima,Peru. Connecting with them through a very powerful non-verbal understanding.

Embracing each moment and finding amazement on even the crappiest days.

I want to learn: playing the guitar, juggle
