There's a flock of pigeons (I believe) tended by a man near our Sanur home. We always know when he lets them out and they're up and above swirling around in eerie tinkling sound that rises and falls depending on their proximity - for they have rings around a foot. I hear this sound at times before we lived here and wondered what it was. I thought it was maybe some electrical transformer. Then one day room cleaner Ketut at our last residence explained it. I can't find anything on the Internet to explain it. Must ask around. To some it's a slightly disturbing sound - like a 1950s sci-fi movie flying saucer sound.

It's so easy for me to put photos I take here in Bali on Instagram. I don't do it every day. But I did so today - a colorful snail on the ceiling of the front porch away from Bandita, our dogette,who likes to chew them to pieces. It's a muted red and yellow. Yesterday - a shot of a flower arrangement in a little vase for Katrinka from a local flower shop. I prefer to choose them myself but wasn't out so Nyoman, our usual driver, choose it. Katrinka was most please. My Instagram moniker, as it says up top, is David Reich Chadwick.

Cuke What's New blog. We're moving over here the past nonZense posts such as found in the Saunters and DC Misc. This way Cuke What's New blog can remain pristine and pure, devoted to Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts and Cuke Archives. This nonZense blog can grovel in lower realms. Thanks to Peter Ford for getting this new blog up and running - and for everything else he does for Cuke Archives. - DC
