ETA: I am re-reading the thread. I think you are referring to my longer post in response to Evelyn's post.
Yes, I think she made that clear in the article.Quote
Evelyn has met, shared experiences with, and agreed to present the perspective of a shaman she has known for many years.

Your timing couldn't have been worse.
Does she agree with you?!I havquite enjoyed reading Evelyn's posts, although I think her ideas of a lovely, natural, harmonious world are impractical and are based on a vision of reality that, in fact, has never existed and whichQuote
