Had an excellent lunch or dinner or breakfast, whatever it was, yesterday. It involved excellent fresh spring rolls, tofu with peanut sauce...I don't think there will be any problem getting healthy vegetarian food here. Last night I had a coconut, lime, mint, and lichee juice. They don't add sugar to the fruit juice, yay! Only frustration, and it was a big one, was that a new sim card failed to work in the phone that I pretty much specifically bought for that purpose. Candradasa gave me a few tips so going to try again today.

- Ask: Do you want to talk about how you're feeling?
- Don't ask if there's anything you can do. Suggest things, or if it's not intrusive, just do them.
- You don't have to talk all the time. Sometimes just being there is enough.
I'm sitting on our porch in front of a super green garden. It is overcast, the hum of insects is constant. A fly is walking around this screen. Roosters crow all night. We're telling ourselves we should go out now (9 am) before it gets too hot, but we're still sitting here...
