MessageRead the NYT article this morning and want to thank you for persevering and figuring out how to make the bad into good. The world is what it is but our inner self can remain strong and can vibrant no matter the age. I look West at the Pacific Ocean on the N California coast and have learned to cope with wind, salt spray, drought, El Nino torrents, gophers, voles, etc,.......given half a chance, my garden grows quite nicely and is a source of great delight and inspiration always. So are you. Keep smiling and digging! smilie

MessageHello, Joan. I read "This Organic Life" back when it first came out many years ago. I have since tried to emulate much of what you have been doing for so many decades. Gardening success is hard to come by living in the Sonoran Desert. I am now, as of two months ago, a retired schoolteacher and am in the process of moving back to my home in northern Michigan where my gardening efforts will be a bit more successful. You are truly an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your life and your food beliefs with all of us.

MessageWe wrote a message along with a contribution that I now think you won't receive so here's another try at expressing our shock at seeing how badly your garden was devastated. We're so sorry! We hope you're able to get it all reconstructed and plant a garden that will bring you many delicious harvest meals in 2010.

BTW - great picture of you.

MessageHi Joan: I remember so fondly your being on my doctoral committee at Columbia. What an inspiration you've been!

I was so very sorry to learn about the devastation to your garden, but find myself wondering if there's any possibility that love will be lovelier the second time around... I will be eager to hear about how it all goes.

Thinking of you and wishing you all the best and very strong back and knees! Lorna
