the church closed, the homeless ministry moved a block or so away, first under the bridge (yes, ministry by the Rev. Barry Kidwell — not just the homeless people themselves) and later to First-Centenary UMC across the river. One friend of a friend who commented on Facebook said, "The other day I looked as they were bulldozing part of it and the pulpit was still there. They didn't even have the respect to remove it." That's so sad.
I started a yoga class this week with Katelyn of Plum Padma Yoga. My new yoga mat shows the tree of life, as I move my stiff body to regain some of the flexibility I used to have.
I'm reading three (or four) books at once:
The Dalai Lama's Cat ~ by David Michie, 2012, fiction (India)
The South Beach Diet ~ by Arthur Agatston, 2003
Clutter Busting: Letting Go of What's Holding You Back ~ by Brooks Palmer, 2009
The Cove ~ by Ron Rash, 2012, fiction (North Carolina)
