Hi Rosemary, I loved listening to all the stories from the beginning days, I attended your California School of Herbal Studies, I think in 1978. We were three pretty straight suburban women who hovered together a bit as most everyone were more or less considered hippies. I am so grateful for what I learned about all the wonderful plants growing among us, and what we made and ate together at the school. You also opened my eyes to spiritual studies, I remember I met my spirit Guide when we were meditating in a meadow, Can’t remember which teacher brought that on. To this day I practice much from those days as I grow my herbs and use them in every way, and always think of you . Thank you for this interaction and inspiration from the two of you just now.
