    What a wonderful interview! I just started her memoir and am loving it, too! I don’t know much about yoga and am looking forward to that aspect of the book and how Leza built a life around yoga in Japan.

      Hi Susan! I just wanted to say that I am devouring your memoir and I am LOVING it.

      Currently I am at the Hidden River-Suzhou-Shanghai summer trip and I can’t wait to find out what happens next. The foreign bookstore thing was OUTRAGEOUS! I would have killed him! How bossy!

      PS: sorry for the emphasis but your story is so involving!!

    Wow her story is so interesting! I have always been very fascinated by the world of yoga and meditation, I keep saying I will start practicing it but then life always gets in the way.. but I am sure one day I will finally start pursuing it seriously.

    As for adoption, I think it takes a lot of energy and courage to go down that path. There is a blog of a woman called Jessica Murnane who decided to adopt even though she and her husband were perfectly fertile. She says she has always felt like pregnancy was not for her and that adoption was her call. She now adopted an adorable baby called Sid. Her point of view is quite interesting and unconventional, as most couples adopt because of infertility issues.

    Thanks to Jocelyn for this great opportunity, and thanks to everyone for your comments. Yoga has really been a life-saver for me. And I do believe that we can all create the families we need, in one way or another.
