Yesterday at lunch I nearly choked on a steak sandwich. It was like it was happening in slow motion. I could not swallow or dislodge the chunk of food. Richard came from behind and beat on my chest and it dislodged like a technicolor dolma-like turd from my throat (excuse the graphics). It was definately a scare and a Zen Stick from Existance. Wow…God Bless, Dear Richard!!!! So I am still here breathing on this very planet. The office above the chapel is really happening. The foundation is all dug out. The cement and Cal are here…the rocks arrive today. I am hoping that it will be finished in two or three months….this is our practice building project for the eventual Chapel of Jimmy Ray. We will do it….it makes me happy.

Well, here in Mexico, the holiday season is a happenin’. Richard and I and our brood of furry and feathered friends send special greetings to lovers and friends near and far and we wish Peace and rejuvination for this Planet that we call earth. My New Years resolution is to shed some of these protective barnacles and find compassion for all Beings. May the nation to the North of us find some intelligence and gusto and get rid of these maddening republican presidents and henchmen. And may those who practice violence, somehow return to the intelligence of their hearts and stop following their dicky brains….Love to all!!!!!!
The above title should be sung as if you are Dionne Warwick and you are feeling kicky and Swinging London…but if that was too far in the past for you…consider this: Happy Holidays. San Miguel is getting real busy and touristy as the Holidays approach. Richard is driving the car now into town instead of me….I need to learn patience…so Anado is taking a break from the Wheel. The picture that is included was taken the other night before our Guadalupe festival on December 12….Love to all. The Chapel is a happening…spontaneous and fluid…the Way Jimmy Ray likes it…by the way….Way rhymes with Ray. Got it? The other photo was taken the next morning at the festivities….
Carlos and Miguelito have begun digging the foundation for the Office/Painting Studio/Meditation Room/Extra Bedroom today. It will overlook the Chapel from a slight rise and the entrance faces east like the hogans in the Navajo Tradition. While digging today, they have come across a number of old pottery shards. Carlos tells me that they are really old…at least 200 years. I believe him. Right now we are setting them aside under a mesquita tree. Later on I will make a reliquary for them. This is so utterly exciting that building is actually going to happen at the Chapel. It is my life work. Gratitude is in order. Gracias, Dios. I need to make lots of necklaces and more art to finance this thing. NEWS BULLETIN!!!!!!! Catherine Abby, my friend with the cancer scare was told two days ago that ther are no signs of cancer lingering in her body. Lucky Woman…she has suffered and ultimately shown us the path of strength. I love my friend. Graciad, Guadalupe!!!
I have actually been here all the time…in this body that is. I just have not been blogging. So much has been happening. Joe’s film, Mexico City, clearing down in the Chapel area, sales (good and bad), working in the studio, loving the dogs, preparing for a new burro (Lupita), eating, sleeping, fantacizing, procrastinating, loving, gossiping, wondering, doing, reading, watching…all of that and more….and probably more to come. So Welcome back, Anado! Love to all Beings and more tomorrow!
