Devi at Sue Wongs Aloha LoveTribe,
A quick trip to LA ... Lot's of shopping, assisting Shaye's move into her new pop-up home and clothing library (see below) and slipped into a party and another world.

We now have some beautiful sweaters; alpaca, cotton model, (cashmere coming any day), more larger sizes in clothing and gifts of comfort, beauty and peace.

I went to a party for Romio given by Sue Wong at her amazingly beautiful home, The Cedars. As I was sitting in the room here, I was thinking, hmmm... elegance and when I came back to open the Berkeley shop ... elegance appeared in so many props, clothes and people that came our way! Watch those thoughts!
This picture was taken by Julie Weston of Weston Wear (whose clothing we carry), who spontaneously flew down to party with us.

Our sweet friends and strong love couple/partnership, Donovan and Linda came to celebrate, with the hundred plus other fun guests.
After speaking with Linda for a bit and introducing her to Julie, Donovan looked our way and
Linda said, "Look Don, it's Devi" and he said, "Is it our Deva?, our Devi? as he reached out his arms for me. And then said, "And you've come! ... At the end of time ... but of course endings are just new beginnings ... it's all circular anyway. And I said, "Yes, and happiness runs in a circular motion ... Love is but a little boat upon the sea" and he said, "Everyone is a part of everything anyway" ... I said, "you can have it all"... and we both said, "If you let yourself be" ....  
Donovan & Devi
Then a camera snapped us out of what we felt was a private exchange and I noticed we had quite an audience. Romio among them took the pictures ... and just sent to me ...  
Thanks ...

I asked a young Donovan fan what she likes best about his music and she said she wanted to feel like his voice sounds. And yes, isn't that what we all need right now? A bit of mellow yellow ... and mellow rainbow too. Letting it all be...

Donovan has been a big supporter of meditation in schools for many years. Even if you and I just take some moments for some deep breaths ... breathing in peace, breathing out a smile (Thich Nhat Hanh)... it will make this season oh so much more peaceful ...
Gifts of peace, love and compassion
White Tara White Tara

White Tara is the energy of love, compassion, beauty and vibrant health (youthfulness). We have coming in next week Romio Shresthra's books of Thangka paintings. The Celestial Gallery, Goddesses of the Celestial Gallery, and coming soon his new book, Buddhas of the Celestial Gallery, plus postcards and his children's book, Thunder Dragon. We are also producing some giclees of his painting of White Tara. These are currently to decorate our TempleShops, although they can be ordered.

Dressing our stories Nataya dress Julie Bird

in the Temple of Venus

As many of you know parties happen spontaneously in our temple of love and beauty. People meet their best friends (even Nick found his dog angel here)...love is found in many forms... besides the beautiful comfy clothing, at half off prices and a wide range of sizes and styles.

Julie is wearing a Nataya dress, and a (synchronistically) matching leather jacket. Her friend Skot has on one of the new cashmere scarves (comes in solid and print) and a Tokyo Bay messenger bag. And all at half off or less.
