Beautiful history of healing, sharing, teaching. A life well lived honoring all warriors and humans who seek a positive purpose.
I worked at Blue Ox as a millwright, truck driver and general hand in 1979-80. That was also the time in which my father was dying of cancer, and Eric and Viviana were both employers and Mom & Dad to me. Eric's poetry about what he and his comrades went through in Vietnam was deeply moving to me, and their work with Veterans is a national treasure. I look forward to seeing The Veterans' Monologues Project when it comes to town. Bob Olofson, Eureka, CA.
I served with Eric and the 101st Airborne in the boonies of Viet Nam in 1968. He and the rest of our squad reunited for the first time at Fort Campbell three years ago. Get on the Blue Ox website, watch the video. You will be truly enriched. He makes me proud. Dodie Gaines, Los Gatos, CA.
Yes, I love that moment of opening the doors of the shop - all at rest - then with the fire lit, the iron hot, all is transformed. Wonderous!
He's a well liked teacher, and will be missed. Enjoyed getting to know more about the man who my daughter calls her 'favorite'. Great article!
This is one special lady. She took the time to insteal a love of horses in my grand kids when she didn't have to and when I'm sure she was tired and would have rather rested but now one of my grand daughters just won her first buckle and horses all started with, "Sis" taking them on her horses at camp just because she is that kind of special.
Page 51 said I could enter a winter giveaway but can't find it anywhere online!
She's a great human being!
I believe you CAN do it Marna! You rock!
My latest project.
Where can you get the copies of "Menu of Menus"? I've checked the locations where the Journal is available, but cannot locate it.
Since the Journal is posting excellent music festivals across the state, is there a reason the 15th annual California WorldFest, (in Grass Valley) has not been listed?
A few years ago myself and a girl friend where out black berry picking when I was attached by a mountain lion. our attack was so much like the Prairie Creek couples experience with one big difference neither of us went to the hospital. If it were not for my wonderful friend and her courageous dog I would not still be here.Their is not a day that passes that I do not think of just how lucky I am. To this day neither one of us has been able to go berry picking or go into the woods. The experience has left us both with very serious injuries, they just do not happen to be the kind that you see. What has made it even worst was the response we received from our local " so called protectors"( fish and game)*
I am interested in anyone that knows of bear or cougar attacks in this area.
