Today I celebrate the Birthdays of my beloved Mother, Patricia Diab and my beloved sister Madeleine… They are together on this day of March 3. Madeline was born on my Mothers 30th birthday 57 years ago.
It is my Mother who planted the seeds of Yoga in my heart 43 years ago when she brought me to a yoga class at Bloomingdales in The Short Hills Mall in 1973 when I was 10 years old.
My sister Madeleine encouraged me to do what I love throughout my entire life and career.
Thank you both, I am forever Grateful… Happy Birthday,
Love Always and Forever,
Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow:
I am the diamond glints in the snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain:
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there: I did not die.
