    Hey Randy,

    Beautiful, my friend! I couldn’t have done as well, except t’was by accident! But you, Randy, have a gift for words and putting them on paper, and . . . er, cyber-paper.

    Well, what can I say? You made my day! I had no idea that the newsletter would elicit such a response as this.

    Excellent work!

      One inspiration deserves another Laurie! I also note that Rita liked it too. All the best to both of you, and hopefully we can get together by that fire sooner rather than later.

    This is wonderful! You are one of a tiny number of people I’ve met (sadly, not including me) who seem really to be present. I also love your analysis of the difference between comfort and self realization, and the high, though different cost of each.

    Thanks so much for sharing this.

      Thank you Arthur. I take inspiration, season and baste it over a slow fire, and then pass it on for tasting. I’m glad you enjoyed it!

      Silvia, you told me once that you haven’t historically appreciated poetry very much, and I’m not sure if I’ve converted you or simply seduced you over to the LFM dark side. My ego says it’s the latter.

    Both your memory and ego serves you correctly, Randy.

  4. […] This past Saturday, Mrs. LFM and I attended and participated in the Kejimkujik Story Telling Festival at Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site. The event was also the venue for launch of the revised second edition of  Mi’kmaq Medicines – Remedies and Recollections written by our esteemed Friend, and bottomlessly effervescent fount of ethnobotanical Wisdom, Laurie Lacey. I’ve written of Laurie before in my article Medicine Man and he was the inspiration for my poem, Trails – With Dedication to Laurie Lacey. […]

    But they who seek the easy ways,
    Those free from strife and test,
    Will come to learn all gentle paths
    Don’t lead to peace and rest.

    You’ve noticed 😉
