Hello, I feel so happy to be here. I have long admired Alistair on the various TV shows he has been on, his gentle, easy going and kind personality shines through. Today I discovered Mindsprings and am looking forward to exploring the site and learning. I am originally from Hertfordshire, UK but now live in New Mexico where I own an alpaca farm with over 40 alpacas. I find alpacas to be soothing and meditative creatures. I have been meditating on a regular basis for about 15 years and practicing yoga for about 8 years, but there is always room for learning and expansion. This seems to be a kind and welcoming community and I look forward to being part of it. Sending blessings to all.
