Namaskar B,

I appreciate your honesty too. And I'm glad you filled in the gaps. Sorry to say, I haven't see much of the mid-west except for passing through I-90. But I can't say I was there long or experienced the full gravity of their core values.

About being away from your family because of your job - that is painful and I'm sorry. Thank you for painting the big picture. My view of this economy is seeing massive layoffs and families being evicted from their homes by the local sheriff so a bank can let the property sit for years while they wait for the value to come up again. The banks are in no rush to help people because they have our 700 billion future tax dollars to play with.

The prospect of teaching yoga where you live sounds like a steady semi-retirement or early retirement plan. I don't know how open minded the people are in North Dakota but the benefits will attract some who will spread the word to others. I know you won't lose money, and I'm sure you will grow a yoga studio in the middle of North Dakota. I'm not sure about the rate of speed or if you should also offer a more generic "stretch class" as a side option to an authentic yoga class. Paul had called these classes stretch and tone exercise classes. I would test them against each other to see the results.

I wish you and your folks a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.

Om Shanti,
