I am always delighted to hear from an old friend with whom I have been out of touch for a while. Today, I received an e-mail from Mona Mistriel, with whom I had worked at Lewis, Joffe & Company for a few years back in the mid 2000s. She had been in Tucson and Sedona in Arizona and is now in Ventura, about an hour north of me.
Her two sons are now fully grown and reflect well on the care she had taken as a single mother with them, through good times and bad.
Mona is a natural healer and has been an influence (along with Martine) on nutritional supplements I am taking, with some success, to improve my health.
I look forward to meeting with her in a couple of weeks. Martine and I look forward to taking her out to dinner here in LA.
