Re: [fukuoka_farming] Another star appears
- Dear Jamie,
This is a visit that many of us have waited for. Gazing at your
beautiful home & vista from the ridge is les vacances from our city
skyline. (Maybe that is how to say vacation?)
There has been a guessing game of the meanings of the beckoning
name Souscayrous. We have played with Sous=below, & was cayrous one
word or two? Was there an historical reference of which we were
ignorant? A phrase in the local culture? Is it a home & garden, a

boy, so "he" was named Felix, & called Felix through the rest of the
pregnancy. At the birth, the surprising reality was announced,
"Felix...is a girl!" & so she is, Felix is a girl. I thought you
might enjoy that one, Mr. Jamie, to tell your family. We do have some
of our own James, some of our own Anne in our family. No Tezel is
here, or has ever been, but we would love to have one such as yours.
Thank you for your kindness to the planet, & for sharing your
discoveries, your work & joy.
The articles are deep with knowledge, the projects are rich with
life. You have created another most useful gift, to whomsoever seeks
the company of those who care for the good dirt, & seeks the
information to be one.
