Hi Yogis,

What a lovely week.  The reality of my weeks holiday was sort of the same as usual, but my perception has changed.  The challenge is to get them to match up.  To realise that almost every week can have a holiday aspect if I see it in this way – instead of WORK.  I have more commissions (both needlework and art), and have nearly completed the “Angels and Elephants”…

Speaking of work (or play), I am going to do a miniature (relic? for those who understand) of Father Martin who retired from our parish this week after 14 years with us.  If anyone is “special” it is him.  Who bathed and kissed the congregants feet on Easter Thursday, and blessed the quilts?  – yes, Father Martin, and who cut my wood when I needed it? the same Father Martin.  Practical, spiritual, musical…. I am waiting to see what young person they have asked to take his place (no-one can!).  I am sure the women of the Parish can lend a guiding hand.

Some time ago I gifted a Tea-Bag miniature to Father Martin – A copy of the DALI “COSMIC CHRIST’.  My miniature is absolutely perfect in every way.    Spirit told me to give this to him even though I thought it may not be appropriate.  Obeying Spirit it was presented, it was then I learned that he had a print of this painting on his wall. It was  given to him by his mother who passed not long ago.  It is a  painting that has deep significance for him on many levels.  How good is that?

When I said goodbye on Saturday after his last Saturday service/vigil with us,  he introduced me to others as “..the artist who painted my miniature of the “Dali’s Cosmic Christ”.

NAMASTE .  JAHNE

Dear Yogis,  A REPEAT OF WEDNESDAYS MESSAGE…..

No  yoga on Friday, and on Saturday the Monday Yoga Group is taking our YOGA LUNCH to one of our students who has been unwell.

In the last few days I have been catching up, painting, planning the “next best thing”.  I was hoping to get into the garden – it hasn’t happened, or more tidying of the back shed – also hasn’t happened.  But we live in hope.

There are still a few days left of my erstwhile “holiday”.  A student offered to help with some heavy lifting, which I have gratefully accepted, so I will be able to paint the floor of the entrance to the art room – not that anyone will notice.  It is like a woman fussing over a new haircut, or glasses. Does anyone notice – not really.  I remember when I painted the studio wall a blue black (it had been white).  When I asked at the end of the class if anyone noticed any differences in the room – out of 10 only one thought “it could be” the wall.

See you soonish –
