I try not to post updates about my life unless I am sure I know what is going on. This is for many reasons, one of which is my desire to create the illusion that I actually have my shit together (which is almost never true). So, now that I have signed a lease, I guess its finally official. Jamie and I are moving to Arcata, CA on January 1st. We found a beautiful place that we are excited to move to. Jamie was accepted to Humboldt State, so it sounds like we will be there for a few years. I am pretty committed to only work part time. That way I can focus on the other programs I want to put together in the area. I want to volunteer at the prison again teaching meditation and yoga, and I also want to share the deeper teachings from the wisdom traditions to help inmates gain more freedom in their lives. I want to put together some mindfulness workshops for activists and social workers, and I want to be a hospice volunteer again.
Of course I want to sing the Names as much as possible, and I plan to start traveling more teaching and singing. We have a yard at our place, and we want to grow a garden. I will be taking a bee keeping class this Spring and I am excited to make some bee friends. That’s all for now. I will post some pictures one we move.
Here is a candid video that Jamie took of me singing the Holy Names during our last road trip up North to Humboldt County. I hope you enjoy, and I hope I have some more posts to share with you soon. I love all of you, and I really mean that. I apologize if sometimes I don’t express that well enough to my friends. That is going to be one of my intentions for the new year and my new life amongst the redwoods.
