Sunday bliss

This may be the richest Sunday on record! The morning ride was bittersweet–relief from the hot summer temperature, but a stark awareness that Fall is soon to arrive. The smell of damp flora and the chill in the air was all about the change of seasons. A hard but brief rain would convince me for sure. Later, a two (yes 2!) hour massage. Absolute heaven. Now, the quiche is in the oven, green beans and garlic are ready to be roasted, artichokes are simmering. The afternoon light illuminates the kitchen, it is so cozy in there, and the smells are so tantalizing. Soon, I will sit with my family to savor a home cooked, locally raised dinner (the chokes come from Monterey area), basking in the joy that is my life. I am truly blessed.

"After thirty years of eating healthy foods and participating in regular, vigorous exercise, I was astounded to discover I have Coronary Artery Disease. In March of 2010, I had two stents placed in my Left Anterior Descending Artery- this was big. I consulted Robin Mallery, RN, knowing she is a local expert on Cardiac Rehabilitation. I especially respected her lifestyle of nutrition and physical fitness. Robin’s reassurance that I was doing many things correctly, and her instructions on how to fine-tune my program to deal with this life-threatening disease, was invaluable. Robin’s exquisite grasp of balancing traditional medicine with diet, exercise, relaxation and fun has helped me through this medical crisis". --Maiya Gralia, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and cross-country ski instructor and coach
