    Wow, Vicky you take great photo's. We had sooo much fun!!! So many delicious raw food concoctions, so little time...hah hah hah... But seriously, James Dyer delivered a very moving poignant story of his transformation from 400 lbs to I think he said 160lbs and it was all done through juicing, eating raw living foods. Then we had Shawha…who just moved to the Central Valley from San Diego and knows and worked with the well-known Jeremy Saffron…a well known Raw Foodist and raw food author with several books… and how lucky we are to have Shawha in our midst. You can see him with James and his raw eating 9 year old daughter... Then there was my Yoga student Yuli Meroz and her two girlfriends, Jackelin Salinas and Erin Rana, who all loved the gourmet Raw foods that were tantalizingly available! Then Dawn Davidson and her friend James Reyes showed up with their delicious stuff...Folks, both James and Shawha will be spurring us on with more encouragement, inspiration and good-will. And as usual, Victoria Balane brought charm, hospitality and graciousness to the whole setting let alone her good photography and as you can see in the photo’s beautiful home near Woodward Park. I thank you all and I hope that many of you in our 307 person strong Raw Food Living Plant Based Muscle Foods Roster will avail yourselves of this yummi-ness now and forever! As usual I did some headstands (Salamba Sirsasana) and inspired a whole lotta folks there to try it...ho ho hah hah hah…what with me and my Laughter Yoga thing!!! Let's continue the great work and James Dyer was a bit nervous in the gills when I told him to take the floor and since he said this was the first time he’s told his story in public its totally cool and understandable!!!…wow…how brave James…but his speaking from his heart I'm sure inspired all of us gathered there, Valentine's Day. What a labor of LOVE on Valentine’s Day. Take Heart everyone we can all do it and lets pull together to make healthy eating and healthy living very possible… So we can use the Mantra “EVERY DAY, IN EVERY WAY…I’M GETTING BETTER AND BETTER” and keep repeating as a positive Mantra that it is… and the great affirmation that it is. I think it was Emil Coue that penned that. Hope to see many of you at our next MeetUp at Victoria’s again… given we don’t change the meeting times and places on you…which leads me on (like a broken record) to: Dear Folks, please fill out the Survey and email it to me...I do want to help us all and facilitate it all (all 307 of us, a daunting task to say the least!) We draw inspiration, hope, understanding, love and friendship from each other and this instills a community spirit. In Yoga the word Spirit means Breath…(Latin=Spiratus=to breathe) Or in Yoga its Prana meaning=The Life Force. As I mentioned in my email we have several other places we can meet and now the management at the Casa De Luna has said we could use the beautiful Clubhouse here!!! Wow… plus how about doing these MeetUps at Cary Park, a couple blocks from where I live at Casa DeLuna. (Behind Ramada Inn, Fresno and Shaw Ave’s) We could even meet at my roomy apartment here. Mike my roommate would love to invite his family to one of our potlucks. Brenda Lewis also has a new home and it will easily accommodate a bunch of us. Thanks everyone, again and especially to you Victoria with your gentle coaxings and that fruit setting was beautiful…I saw you painstakingly putting the tail end of it together. Folks its featured in that photo. Check it out. Take care all Leon (Organizer) PS. Linda Bedrossian, my Petanque buddy was featured in the photos of the last Meetup before Sat. She told me yesterday at Petanque, Cary Park that she couldn't make it day before Yesterday, she had a few sniffles. Linda has a lot to offer, she brings us a lot of practical knowledge, know-how and expertise in a very loving sharing way about health and nutrition and I’m sure is a great addition to our group. Thanks Linda. PLEASE NOTE: We no longer meet at 1715 West Shaw Ave, at LinkCare…I’ve moved to Casa DeLuna 3 months ago. I have to let New York MeetUp to change that on our MeetUp website, some of the members went to LinkCare…

    Sorry, my original comment had many indentations and paragraph alignments but MeetUp won't allow this so it looks all hobbled up into a long bunched up format. Sorry folks. Please understand. Thanks Leon
