    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...

    Sangha Invitation

    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...

    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...

    Candle In The Wind....

    It's always difficult to say goodbye to someone who has come to visit me here. I liken it to sending a baby off in a small skiff to face the raging seas. Anna did well here and is now at her mother's home in LA awaiting departure for Chiang Mai and the orphanage she is to work...

    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...

    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...
