The Carlo Levi quote “the future has an ancient heart’ came to mind when I turned 40. This is a personal post, about learning to find joy again when life hands you catastrophe.
After a wonderful 3 weeks in Australia catching up with old friends, drinking far too much Barossa Valley wine and letting my feet heal, I flew back to Bali to conquer my 2nd birthday volcano on the eve of my birthday.
Those of you who know me well know that I try and climb a mountain for my birthday every year. I have been doing this for quite some time now, and my aim is always to be at the summit for sunrise on my birthday. With my 30th coming up, I have decided on 3 separate volcanoes, each located in Indonesia.
