The days are getting longer again!

and we are in Santa Monica. We built a flexible rammed earth wall in Joshua Tree for Penelope, Susan and DeeDee, some of the sculpture is still in progress - the wolf in the background.

Santa Monica is awesome for freecyclers - first day here Ven Madika found three chinese red planters, yesterday I found a 30x40 framed blank canvas in great condition and today we picked up a "teen mattress" made by pottery barn- all left in the alleys for free to whoever wants them. It has rained a lot but when the sun shines this is heaven.

Ven Madika will start teaching Qigong and Meditation in January, we are working on finding a way to skype with the Sangha back in Ohio and my classes start in January. Class schedule starts with Jade Woman Qigong, then Fundamentals of Oriental Medicine, Intro to Herbal Medicine and three Western Medical classes, A&P, terms and chemistry.

Was sick with something a week ago and went to the clinic at Emperor's on Wednesday. Met Megan who will be the primary intern for me while she is at the school, had a great needle treatment session and received some ground herbs to follow up. Megan warned me they would taste awful but they actually aren't bad - taste like instant coffee mixed with beef bullion, Mmmm.
