Update from Vinny, 11/16

post today from Vinny:

"Sweet Friends of our Beloved,
Shrine just left Esalen after a few days of healing. Lots of organic food, massage and the natural beauty of this place can get downright pushy. Anyway, he's moving slow, taking good care of himself and his hobo heart is full of those lucky enough to be called his family. His recovery is being strengthened by our love for him.

To the man that taught many of us about generosity. Whether it was how hard he works making this world beautiful, or splitting a ham sandwich sitting on milk crates. Let's show him how loved he is by holding him in the Great Heart of Generosity."
