Hello there, dear faithful viewers and readers who have found your way here. Welcome!
Alas, I’ve got to confess that I’ve been away from the website for a couple of years, but am now back with vigour and enthusiasm—and so much wiser. It is for that reason and many others that I love being “old”! One has learned so much from the vagaries of one’s life.
It is said that there is no good or bad in our brief sojourn on earth—only a learning situation set-up. But lately it had seemed, as the Queen said, that we were having an “annus horribilis”, or two.
Until, that is, equanimity returned in the form of deep meditation, and soothing psyche self-talk that is highly effective. (More on that technique later).
My long online absence had resulted, in part, from three significant losses—including my beloved older sister Irmi in Munich, and two wonderful old friends.
There had also been several, what one can only call, such ‘utterly ridiculous’ disasters—like: exploding toilets; a flood that required a move to Surrey; and a car-crash—that one can only laugh!
For, in the end, everything turned out to have been “Glück im Unglück” (good luck within bad), and each event had a silver-lining—something which one can only appreciate in retrospect, of course.
But, so as not to sin through the lie of omission, I must also admit to having “been away” from my website, because of a big issue with a possible “loss of privacy” on the Internet—no doubt due to my vast electronic ignorance. (I can’t bring myself to write on Facebook, either, though I do try to keep tabs on my friends and relatives, that way.)
Two other factors have kept me happily busy. One is that of being the “chatelaine” of my marvelous extended family; and the other is being the lucky receiver of lovely “echos” from so many of YOU!
For your very kind words online, and in your hard copy letters, as well as with your book/CD orders in the mail, I offer you my heart-felt thanks of appreciation. Namasté!
Love, light, and many, many blessings.
PS: The Vancouver Courier interviewed me in October 2013. Please read “Yoga icon still limber after all these years”, if you’re curious to see what I had to say.
