Day four of a northerly road trip with darling Daniel, of whom Libby says after meeting him for the first time, ” I thought he would be nice, but he’s really nice!”

Nevertheless, the yoga academies are still churning out trainees. Does the world need more? What could be the harm? At worst we would get supple and serene table service. At best, individuals who live their lives as though we are all fundamentally connected.
