Ten Years On

There’s only one thing more beautiful than Bali, its people.

Although we lived in Jakarta, landing in Bali was like landing on a whole different planet.

Today there will be many people that remark that they can’t believe it was ten years ago, for others it will feel like only yesterday.

Each year on this day, I look at our Annabelle who recently turned ten, and think of how lucky we all are.

Ten years ago.

Life can change in an instant.

I wrote this a couple of years ago.

We will be thinking of the people of Bali today, and all of those affected, particularly two little girls.

  1. I can’t believe ten years have passed. In a way it still feels like yesterday. I remember sitting in a friends lounge in Adelaide when the news came through. I was very involved with the Unley Football Club at the time. They were all in that club celebrating. A number of them didn’t make it.Thanks for this post. We really should never forget moments like that or the lives that were lost.

  2. Reading a post about a real person and not just a number brings the tragedy of all those deaths a little closer.
