Manjula is very much with us and will always be.
I’ve been drawn into her web or her to mine.
Charlotte has been with us for a few days before starting her yoga retreat.
It’s been great: providing insights into India and sharing our stories, as part of the healing process and celebrating my beautiful Manjula. I think I’ve covered everything. Charlotte has been very tolerant. It’s been a great pleasure and an incredible help to improve our story through its telling.
