She is so happy that her son is allowed to follow a part of his dream.
In her mind she is near him in this land - far away.
She misses him and is so pleased he keeps in touch and shares such wonderful letters with her.
.................today, Sunday, I taught my second Iyengar yoga class here - first one yesterday a very full ( 14 men and women from everywhere ) and very international level one class - today's class advanced and all women - 6 Thai ladies, one British, and one from Brooklyn......it went quite well and there were even 4 teachers amongst them......the class started at 11:00 am and halfway thru the class it got really dark and stormed the rest of the class - and most of the afternoon - outside the windows of the studio the owners wife has lots of potted bamboo plants on a balcony which combined with the torrential rain and wind was quite exotic and added a distinct touch to the atmosphere as we segued to more restorative poses - since it was raining so hard after class I had dinner downstairs at Zen - which is a chain of Japanese restaurants here - the studio is in a 4 story office bldng 20 minutes walk and skytrain ride away from my apartment - also in the building are a vinyassa yoga studio, a ballet studio, kids karate, a Western Sizzler and a bunch of hair and nail salons....the ballet studio is next door so for many saturdays a year going back over 6 years I often hear classical piano music filtering thru the wall as there is a ballet class at the same time as the yoga class saturday mornings - so I always know I am in Thailand when relaxing at the end of class in the darkened studio in savasana when I hear the music - its quite nice......
have a great Sunday, Jimmy
