I just couldn't do that At. Knowing that the digest was temporarily static
and wanting to do something constructive straightaway I picked one of
Anona's best roses and sent this to Dan and Heidi Chay who are dedicated
to conflict resolution and Dan and Heidi put it up on the web at
We hope it helps. It was only after I had sent it that I noticed the tiny
red stain on the petal. The rose is still here by my desk as I write. I
will leave it there and maybe find some way to restore it. Anona and I
will probably plant a new rose somewhere in the garden.
Love to all those suffering in this world.
