you mean geographically? here in alb, of course. got a new job. it's been pretty crazy overall for the last year and a half or so. or the last twenty nine years, whichever way you want to think about it. anyway, how are things with you? i'm trying to stay plugged in more than i have been. tell me about it all!
Hey Paul, I wish I could make it for your performance. Unfortunately I have a little distance problem. I can't seem to find a direct flight into Abq. I'm hoping to visit for Thanksgiving. Maybe you will be performing then, at which time I will make it a point to attend one of your many invites that I keep getting.
Goodness, Paul. You look different. I don't think I'd recognize you in person. Welcome back to Albuquerque. We missed you. Golly gee, you've been making a major difference to the organization (STNM). I've had the ideas but not had the time and space in my life to act. You showed up like a Super Hero! Thanks for being such a support to STNM. Your energy is such a blessing to the organization. Margaret is incredible...she's got fire. My daughter has been asking about you and is waiting for your PBS special. You left an impression. She's in California now attending college. She doesn't know you're back. I'll pass on the news that Paul's back in town BIG TIME.
Much Love and Grace to you and yours,
hello! sorry it took me so long to get back to you ... i've been out of town, exploring...
the workshop will use a lot of the tools we use in yoga to begin to quiet the mind (breathing techniques, yoga poses, deliberate movement, beginning meditation, etc.). a lot of the postures i've chosen for the workshop also help by working with the nervous system and helping it to release the chemicals we need to feel better (serotonin, endorphins, etc.). i can go further in depth if you'd like.
the workshop is fine for brand-new yoga students, and even for those with injuries or physical limitations - to a degree. if someone isn't able to walk or sit on the floor, they may not find as much benefit as someone who is relatively able-bodied.
hope that begins to answer your questions. i'll be happy to tell you more about anything specific you'd like to know. =)
Hi Paul - thanks for befriending me! That bird disappeared right after Christmas and I think he may have ended up in someone's posole pot! But the neighbors have new birds, hens and a rooster who take over Atlantic in the morning right after the sun goes up.
If you do performance art, we may have some Barelas friends in common. Do you know Stephanie and Virginia (of the recently defunct Out'Chyonda) or David and Elizabeth of the Filling Station?
Perhaps our paths have crossed - we've been here since 1996, so it is possible!
