      1. I think the plastic wrapping of the idols
        was just to protect them from renovations
        being done at that particular temple.
        The Hindu Balinese are quietly proud of
        their culture, having resisted & survived
        foreign invasion and interference.
        I was lucky enough to be there for their
        biggest festival of the year to commemorate
        “The victory of good over evil” … Kuningan,
        when the Balinese repelled an invasion
        from Java.

      1. Very true, Charlie πŸ‘

        “People, wasting away
        in paradise
        Going backward, once in a while
        Moving ahead, falling behind
        What do you believe
        What do you believe is true
        Nothing they say makes
        a difference this way
        Nothing they say will do
        Take all the trouble that you can afford
        At least you won’t have time to be bored
        Oh the power and the passion,
        Oh the temper of the time
        Oh the power and the passion
        Sometimes you’ve got to take
        the hardest line” ~ Midnight Oil

    1. Sorry Katy … πŸ™
      I should’ve put up a trigger warning;
      “If you’d like your day to have a happy start,
      do not read till well after dark.”
      Being down under, my late evening is your
      early morning.
      But glad my Mute Monday cheered you up😎

      1. No worries at all, my friend!!! One of my favorite things about Your expression is that You fearlessly and lovingly look life right in the eye with all it’s colours and call it as You see it. Your work is raw, relentless, crazy deep and so passionately driven! So every time I come by for a visit I’m well aware my heart in some way is taking a little trip!!! And the sadder/maddening/devastating aspects of our earth tribe are all part of it. Rock on (as if You could do anything but!!!) and no apologies/warnings necessary!!! Cheers! πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ˜Š

      1. Awww, ‘to be a rock
        and not to roll’
        is a tough tough thing
        for such an idol of a man
        with a warm warm
        heart o’ gold.

        I’m doing my
        pandemic best
        to climb a stairway
        of unlocked mindfulnessπŸ”“
        One fine day πŸŒ…

      3. David, that was absolutely
        brilliant… truly. And so fast,
        too-ly. I am cheering for
        post-pandemic you-ly
        and all the fine folks
        who will be cheered
        by the warmth of your
        smile, duly.
        Hugs, King Cutie-Patutie!
