One of the main reasons I crossed the Atlantic Ocean was to visit my teacher, spiritual guide and friend. He never tells me what I want to hear, but surely what I need to. To me he is a humble man endowed with knowledge and good etiquette. I am blessed and enriched by visiting him and his family.
May God preserve and raise them all.
I surprisingly felt very much at home when I visited California because it shared similar qualities with London apart from the weather of course! I noticed a distinctly multicultural and friendly community and actually had a quant subtle character that I grew to love.
