I don’t think the rains and Cris’s reappearance are in anyway related. But here we are at the neighborhood and that is what is going on. Cris was off on some mysterious secret mission and has come back to us with a full charge on her batteries. And equally mysterious was my conversation with Father Tryphon in the super market several days ago. He told me of the impeding electrical storm that will happen today. And here we are now with a couple of showers and maybe the start of something bigger.
Let me put in a plug for Father Tryphon who runs a monastery here locally. It is Orthodox in flavor and the brothers that are there roast coffee to support the operation. It is quite a beautiful place. If you come up to walk Phil’s Camino you might be able to tour the monastery as well. Maybe I could come up with their visitor schedule or phone number for you.
What else is new around here? Well I did finish reading that fascinating book Radical Remissions and I am digesting it. Remember there were nine factors that the author brought up that were most common to the one thousand people that she collected data on. I am thinking of writing a post on each one of those factors for us. They are terribly interesting not only to people with cancer but to people in general as a basis for a healthy life. She has really tapped into something here for us to work on. We have been working on this stuff for four years now but she has sort of organized it for us, gave it some structure.
Well, I am off now. Picking corn and blackberries today. See you all tomorrow. Love as always, Felipe.
