    Saying Goodbye...

    Old Blues Guy left this morning. In just the few days he was here much by and for him was accomplished. He detoxed fairly well, sweating out long held toxins in my hot yoga studio. He discovered the healing benefits of cannabis based balm. He exercised more than he had in years...

    I Sooooooo Agree

    But I do believe we endure *trials* in our life to strengthen us.   So although I do wish every one would recover physically ( my husband died a year back from injuries sustained in a car accident when hit by a drunk driver)    I believe that some of the recovery we overlook...

    Settling Down....

    Anna seems to be settling down again nicely. I suspect she will want to go home today or tomorrow and as she has all she actually needs, as far as moving forward is concerned, I think it may be the right time for her to return. Although her weight is down, her mother and I both...

    5 Minutes A Day

    While we lay in bed at night, waiting to fall asleep, we could easily spend what could be the best 5 minutes of the day. I wrote the following breathing exercise to help sleep uninterrupted from bad dreams, stress, anxiety or active tension. Try this! Lay on your back with one or...

    Rock-n-roll Weeks Ahead...

    It seems as if my friend and fellow musician Joe is coming from London and will arrive in San Francisco Wednesday afternoon. This will be tricky as I live 3 1/2 hours each way from SF. On top of that, another older blues guitar player, a session and jam guy who's played in a...

    Ahh...the Weekend

    I watched Joe's trailer today. It's a trailer to a movie that is still being edited. It's supposed to be a movie about his progress or undoing as an artist and a musical act, but to me it is really a story of his progressions through addiction. His gaunt face and wobbly, wiry...

    Cinco De Mayo Fun...

    Joe is doing very well. He is sleeping through the night, although he is having some intense early morning dreams. These are generally expected at this point in a rehab; things have settled down in his body (he's 83 days sober) and he's been with me a week now and has become...
