good news, bad news

The good news is I booked a gig during SXSW Music Festival at one of the many, many unofficial showcases taking place amid the media and label fest. And I'm going to attend the full meal deal of SXSW, starting with the Interactive portion representing The Conversation Group, through Film and Music, which ends 3/16. The bad news is I'm staying this long because one of my main teachers/guides in this lifetime, Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, is too ill to travel to Florida as planned to open a new stateside, Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute. I had a plane booked to leave Austin early on Friday to attend...now I'm staying on in Texas a few extra days....
First though, I'm off tonight for Pacifica to be on the Bruce Latimer show with Alex and Jean.

Deborah Rose,

You might be interested in contacting my friends, Stan and Johanna. Austin Yogashala is Stan's yoga teaching palapa, and One Yoga is the website I designed for the school.

Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois christened Stan's Yogashala almost 30 years ago, on his first or second visit to the U.S, when he stayed with Stan and Johanna, and made Austin Yoga Shala his base for the length of his visit.

tell them gary sent you. you won't be disappointed.
