Re: The death and possible resurrection of anthroposophy
- As a Jewish, by birth, and mostly irreligious anthroposophist I have
nothing to contribute to this thread but a spelling correction. It
is "possible", NOT "possoble". I just couldn't endure it any longer.

- Frank, thanks for your support! I must say though I
did not spell desert correctly. It should be pea in
the desert because I could not find needle for the

peas in a pod...but that didn't really express what I
wanted to say about the camel going through the eye of
the...fill in the blank, hence pea in the desert. See
how my thinking arrived at pea in the desert?
