Didjeridurian back from hibernation or perhaps he was frozen in carbonite
Site is blowing up I see. I feel I should reintroduce myself...
The originals know who I am but I took quite a hiatus for some personal issue and feel a bit like I owe an explanation for such a leave of absence. Without getting too in depth I faced some serious inner conflict and it forced me into some major life changes. I sold my "raw food" cafe, released myself and my ex-wife (still good friend) from the convoluted bonds of marriage, and finally abandoned my illusory attachment to the automobile,
I have enrolled in school to pursue my dual PhD in Holistic Nutrition and Health and natural Healing and my license as a HygioPhysician (Natural Hygiene Naturopath). I took a job as manager of a local health food store and vegetable co-op. I also began a program for teens to understand the importance of a natural living philosophy for their personal freedom and the realization of their full physical mental and spiritual potential. I also hold workshops at elementary schools to explain the simple reality of real fresh plant food to young children by illustrating the journey of food as it goes from the ground to the table.
I couldn't excuse myself any longer for contributing to the needless destruction derrived from my personal dependence on a car. I make my way around on my bicycle and work with a local bike co-op to promote the use of public transit and pedal power. I ride at least 300 miles per week as part of my day to day ventures.
As you can see all of this kept me quite busy.
More to the point... I have been allowing my hair to dread for about 8months now. I started the by very lightly backcombing them (VERY lighty, took about 45 mins to an hour for the whole head) and of course they unraveled one by one very shortly after. Since then I just let them do what they do and they are coming along just fine. The ones that are formed are full of great little twists turns and bumps. There is still quite a bit of loose hair but I am in no hurry. I love watching it evolve.
I don't have any interest in keeping it "neat" or tight so my interaction in the forums is limited to advising people to accept the natural process as a tool for personal growth and expansion. I also love the non hair issues that tend to arise from the interactions of free thinking individuals of all backgrounds.
Anyway its great to be back.
BLESSINGS SE you're doing an amazing job!
