Martha, we have certainly shared a large part of our life's journey, through the valleys and fields as well as over the hills and mountains...  Our shared love of nature and gardening has been a constant that has brought us close and has been the source of great joy in our lives. Nature's gift is not just one of beauty but the gift of knowledge, wisdom and insight into the interconnectedness of everything.  My vision of life is of a spiral, a spiral that continually keeps us returning to people, places, ideas, and all those things we love.  Sometimes the spiral is like like a gentle whirlpool or a williwaw in the wind. At other times it is like a tornado or a dust devil... Life's spiral just keeps spiraling no matter the speed, yet we discover ourselves at a different point in time with each new curve...If only we could all be like the fallen leaf in a wandering stream.  Life's flow will carry it safely around each of the many obstacles if only the leaf allows itself to be one with the current....

I love you Martha...

Always your devoted friend and admirer,

Alice
