To Think About
"Bali is not in the Pacific. The south of the island faces the Indian Ocean, the north the Bali Sea. You're right, it *is* north of Australia, but 'south of Hawaii' is stretching the definition of 'south' quite a bit. Almost all the way to "east"..." a comment from Rien Post.
Maybe if I had a globe or my old geographical gazetteer, but I gave that to Hubig when he got the syndicate gig and needed something to keep him from misplacing countries in his drawings. I was relying on my thirty year old memory of reading "Tales of the South Pacific" and the song, Bali Ha'i, which I misspelled Bali High in my last entry (from the musical South Pacific, of course) and changed after checking the album sleeve. I wondered, Bali High? Bali Hi? Something didn't look right, but I was lazy. I am often lazy, and, well, Rien is certainly right about Bali. I looked it up on the web. The Indian Ocean. Vietnam and Cambodia up there to the left. Indonesia. Singapore. Hawaii, north or south, east or west, isn't in the picture.
I made it to Palo Alto with time to spare yesterday. I scheduled the operation at Stanford Hospital for the 18th of November. Plenty to think about.
