I'm rich beyond belief

Monday night, Sept. 26th, 2005 changed me in a profound way. I went to give a private cooking lesson for a family whose patriarch is suffering from cancer. We had our cooking lesson, and I left the house really in a daze. Suddenly, I realized that I have everything that I could possibly need. I have my health, my boyfriend, my friends, my family, enough money to pay my bills and get by. I have a roof over my head and a job with good people. I have people who trusted me for no reason and invited me to teach at their schools or to work in their homes. The stars were brighter, the musical notes more articulated, and the air more quenching. The next morning, I woke up and felt ALIVE. I felt grateful for everything and everyone around me and in my life. There is so much to be thankful for. Thank you to the people in my life who have given so much to me. Thank you to this family for their beauty and lifeforce.

Hi shanelle. Thanks for your comment. You're in for a real experience. You're also very fortunate to go to Tokyo where there is a lot going on with macrobiotics, including lessons, healthfood stores, and also incredible restaurants. For the background on macrobiotics, you could read The Macrobiotic Way by Michio Kushi. There is a lot on the web too if you connect through one of the links provided on my blog. I especially loved worldmacro.org (see the back issues) when I was learning about yin and yang. Have fun! Leslie

I'd really appreciate if people didnt leave their advertisements on this blog. If people want to ask questions or talk about macrobiotics, I'd be very happy, otherwise, I'm going to take other things off. Please respect this space.
Aloha, Leslie
