i don’t want this to be about me. but i think that’s the only way i can get to know you, so here goes…

my plan for 2011, which started with a trip to south africa, was to have an absolutely magical year. the way i originally believed my magical year would unfold was as follows: go to south africa, come home and sign up for unlimited bikram yoga (a package called, “the magical year”), get in the best shape of my life, enjoy my cool job as a bat biologist, travel mid-year to costa rica, build a chicken coop and raise 4 chickens, write with illuminated awareness about all i KNOW about things…

i went to south africa, and i did sign up for a magical year of bikram yoga 2 days after my return…but if there is any magical quality to this year, it has more to do with the value of friendship and kindness than anything i was considering in my original plan…it has to do with LISTENING, rather than KNOWING, having an open heart; practicing compassion…

with this blog, i am sharing pieces of my daily correspondence with a grieving friend.  never underestimate your power to make a difference. have courage, be kind. namaste.
