In my note to you last week, I told you that I was in the midst of Jain high holiday. So, for the last 3 days, Hemal and I flew out to be with my family. There was a ceremony that we all participated in as a family that tapped me into my own divinity, the love of my family, my brother, my husband, and the Universe in a way I haven’t felt in a very, very, very long time.
