|Beautiful rendering of his sadness and his memory/dream. Accurate, too. Napa Valley is gorgeous. I wonder how many of its residents know it has a fascinating history from before folks like Beringer moved in (about 125 years ago)? Need more poems like this!

The ability to hand the baton on to the next, knowing that we'd given our all, must be very fulfilling. Each and every link has its own purpose in reaching the final goal.
Love & Light always and in all ways,

|A marvelous story, Tiger Lily, and I truly believe these shamans could teach us much today. I also sadly just read that Global Warming may even adversely affect Napa Valley's wine production very soon. Truly, truly sad.|
