Re: [anthroposophy] Ah, this medium--Thanks, Joel
- Dear Elaine,
Fortune willing, I should by around the first week or so of August,
finally be permanently out there in the Southwest with you and Stephen
and others, as I am moving to Prescott Arizona to live near my youngest
(she of 15, with nose ring, going on 35).
My last visit to Hopi Land, that providence allowed, was over Easter
weekend of 1985, and except for the horrible heat of the summers, I very
much look forward to returning to this quite remarkable area of not only
the Americas, but the Planet as well.
I know of the conference, but I am glad you have told the list. I
would like to go, but all the aspects of my move are up in the air, and
I can't yet make any concrete plans.

- Wow-wee! Wonderful that you are returning west, now Southwest, dear
Joel! Maybe we (you, Stephen, Martha Keltiz, who else?--) can stir up
this red dirt here and ride (or walk, or fly?) right up on top of one
of these mesas and look out over this great land and join the Natives
in a real Pow-Wow and sit with them in circle and talk about how the
various spiritual streams meet in this great land!--That could be a
continuation, possibly, of whatever happens at the Detroit event
("Journey into the Heart of the New America") in August.
