Frances - Just
a note from wet, gray, sheep killing little olde
England .... I am fighting the good fight to keep
inside me all the wonderful experiences gained from
my stay at Moinhos Velhos. It was the most amazing experience
I have ever had in the whole of my life (and my life
has not been without colour!!) Thank you all for
your care, your experience and your time. In every
respect I (and even most so, if that is possible, Chrissie)
knee operation went off like a dream - I am also skipping
about already. Most interestingly my blood pressure
was very low. Even when I went in (like 105/50) normally
110/60. We put that down to all the yoga and meditation. It
did dip quite a lot more when I came back from theatre
and hung about at sort of death level i.e. 65/35 for
a few hours, but the fact that I was sitting up munching
into my hospital vegetarian meal with gusto, sort of
assured the nurses I wasn't dying. Probably I was on
my way to some sort of samsara. The anaesthetist was
most interested in the fast and is thinking of sending
his wife, who is an opera singer, off to do one!!
bless her little pink lips, having never done yoga in
her life, has now found a yoga teacher and is setting
up classes in her home every week. She,
of all of us, sort of turned into a living miracle. She has not had to go back to any
of her medication and has astonished her friends and
family by her transformation. She is going to come to
me once a month and do a day of yoga, juicing and a
bit of massage!!
I suppose you get many many letters of thanks and praise,
so do please add this to your list. Just so everything
can't be too perfect, I will add a little plea for others
following me, for variation on the afternoon juices.
I used to love carrot juice - now I am not sure I could
ever have another carrot (or even apple) in my life.
how is Anne-Karine? Hopefully on the up and up. Lots
of love to you all.
