Tom says in the comments, “We want details“… Sorry Tom, but not just now 😉 Partly that’s because it’s off-topic, partly to protect her privacy, and partly because it’s very early days… Hehehe…
Still, it got me thinking that I’d mention a couple of other friends from Beijing, and what they’re up to.
H. is still in England, and getting ever-deeper into her Buddhist practice. We’ve only corresponded infrequently and are well overdue for a catchup, but she seems really happy.
I had quite a long chat with S. the other day as well. She’s still in Beijing, and making huge advances with her study of martial arts, qigong, and spiritual practices. All I can say now is that I suspect I’ll be able to reveal her identity before long, perhaps in a couple of months. She’s likely to become quite well-known (in martial arts circles, at least); I think she’s got the potential to become one of the great martial arts figures of our generation should she so choose (though she may well decide to focus on other areas…) I’m just glad that I’ll be able to say I knew her before she was famous 😉
Sorry to be such a tease, but there we are; I don’t want to name names unless people are willing.
