Gods are alive in Bali
Once a year (but be warned: according to the Balinese calendar!) young people meets and - after a very joyous body-painting - they walk through dozens of villages - where all the people is expecting them.
They parade - singing, shouting, playing. Addressed to the whole Universe: "This is our land! Evil Spirits away from here!"
Through rice fields, forests and rivers. For hours and miles. They stop every once in a temple and pray: "This is our land! Evil Spirits away from here!"
You would say: "folklore" - "primitivism."
But better to know that in Bali, the first day of the year (again according to the Balinese calendar!) three indications are strictly complied with:
- no fire
- no walking
- no working
plus one:
- Silence.
And, for 24 hours, the streets are deserted, no flights in or out!, all the families at home or at the temple.

This little male macacque lives in a forest in Ubud, Indonesia. He has a busy life. He plays, he teases his friends, he goes to Mum when things don't go well. This image always moves me. There is a disconcerting familiarity. Just look at those hands!

Balinese by Jaya

Posted on 2020-01-23

When they forced me, at just 60 years of age, to retire, abandoning a job that had allowed me to live in love and intelligence, I left for Bali. 5000 years of culture of harmony rushed over me: humans are part of Nature and try to live a balance every day. There are great social inequalities, but none outside the community.
Today is the time of destruction of this ancient system, even in Bali.
We'll see.

Bali, Ubud Pasar (Central Market). 2010. These women woke up at 5am, prepared the food for all the enlarged family, then went to the Pasar to sell the vegetables produced along the ricefields and buy some food to bring back (the great majority doesn't have a fridge at home and so they are obliged to have the privilege of having everyday fresh vegetables!) Here, last thing before coming back home, waiting with modesty to buy a small piece of pork meat (very good cooked indeed!).

Happy New Year

Happy New Year by Jaya

What a surprise that night at Gyanyar Pasar in 2013. Pasars (markets) are the places where I spent many many early mornings when in Bali. Places full of Humans who seemed to me wiser then Us, part of the Nature in a more harmonic way than Us, oppressed as Us but freer than Us..and I felt that this World Peaceful Sincere Team was something really existing and the members are all over the world engaged in a very simple direction: to live, to survive with and not over the others. So, Peaceful 2019!

This is a photo of a juvenile Komodo dragon, around 1.5 metres or 5 foot long. This is one baby you don't call cute! The juvenile of the Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis) has a yellow, green, grey and brownish coloured pattern skin. It looks like an Australian 'Goanna' (Varanus giganteus. In May and June they mate. The male Komodo dragons compete by wrestling and rearing-up on their hind legs. Once hatched the juveniles run immediately for the trees to escape being eaten!

Monkeys atop Mt Batur in Bali, Indonesia.

Mother and Child by Ziren

Posted on 2013-12-24

On Mt Batur, an active volcano, I saw a family of monkeys along one of the ridges. When I approached, they started, arresting my movement. But after a few seconds of silence and stillness they seemed to accustom to my presence. I spotted one of the monkeys with her baby safely wrapped in her arms.

At that moment I remarked to my guide the human nature of animals or rather, as I immediately realized, the animal nature of humans.
