My daughter and I went to see the movie, Eat, Pray and Love, after reading Elizabeth Gilbert's book. Last year I attended the Washington Cathedral's speakers program to enjoy Elizabeth Gilbert share her thoughts, reflections and life AFTER the book was published. Elizabeth was very enlightening and entertaining.
The movie opens with breath-taking, ethereal vistas of terraced rice fields.
The beautifully shot film transported me back to Bali. We were very fortunate to spend time with the people of Bali. Our favorite village of Ubud was where Eat, Pray and Love was filmed. Serendipitously, as we closed our stay in Ubud, Julia Roberts was just arriving to film the movie.
While sitting in the theater, brewing in the back of my mind was doing three separate photo essays very very loosely based on the theme of Eat, Pray and Love. This is the first and I start with "Pray." It is a JOY to share glimpses into the devotional practices, which are seamlessly woven into every waking hour of the very open-hearted Balinese people.
