back in the states

goal: embracing dessert as dinner
(raw goodness in Ubud, Bali)

O, i haven't posted in quite some time now. I am back in the states, ready to settle down into a community again. I found a niche in ubud, but the neo-colonialism was eating at me. It's interesting in a way. All "westernized" areas were at some point what most would consider today as "third world," then colonized or invaded or what not. So...is it just something to accept, be aware of and move on into the twenty first century knowing this but living how i want? Knowing that values i don't support are being spread and adapted to areas of the world who live practices i do support? well i guess the sun will super nova eventually anyways, so i'll just keep doing what makes me happy. Asheville, my boxes are waiting...
