We had a really great event this past Sunday at the Woodstock Memoir Festival to present the book. It was alot of fun. People brought food and we had a full house with lots of books for sale in the back. And then Bob Brader (the actor/writer who had performed Spitting in the Face of the Devil, his incredible one-man autobiographical show the night before) joined me up on stage for a back-and-forth conversation about the writing of the book, the story of this blog, for some readings and then some Q&A with the audience. Thank you to all who came and made it the grand celebration that it was. I spotted one agent-from-ashram-headquarters for a moment by the door. I can't remember his name. I don't know how long he was there. Far more exciting was the surprise appearance of a very old, dear friend from ashram times who had made the trip to express his friendship and support.

Buy the book!

Thank you to every reader of this blog. Let's see where we go from here!

Congratulations, Marta! It was, indeed, a wonderful event and I was so happy to be there and meet you. Not only are you an incredible writer, but a superb reader and speaker. It was fascinating to hear you speak about the book and so exciting to finally have the book in hand! Well worth my trip to Woodstock and to the Festival itself--which was also a rare treat. BRAVA!!!!

Congrats on a job well done and on making some recent changes to the image and content (new photos - lovely one of you too!) of your blog.

Keep on keeping on and hope your writing workshops continue to flourish.

May I suggest another signing and reading event, if not in Woodstock then somewhere else?

If you can travel in the summer that might be a better time for some of us to reach you.

Dear Marta,
congratulations for releasing the book. As active participant on your blog I really miss the comments/discussions which were under each chapter. At times those were as valuable as chapter itself. Thus I feel somewhat hijacked about hiding online book and comments. It reminds me of Siddha yoga - whatever the situation is there would be an attempt to monetize it. Would you please reopen online section after your book settles down - it was an open content after all. Thank you and lots of love, Giedrius @S.Y. 1993-2007 gb@metalot.com
