I hope that Estes Park was healing or at least restorative, and I'm so glad for the timing of the first issue of PLY with your "First Sheep" article. That's surely cheering and also validating. You're doing what you need to do, whether in the love of your family, or your love of sheep and fiber. Take comfort in that and in the supportive community you've woven over the years. xo from me!

Dear Deb,
Your obituary for your mom is so very loving and moving. I am very sorry for your loss. All I can suggest is to be kind to yourself in the upcoming months. And to trust that time will heal your heart.
Wishing you well,

Deb Robson

Susan, being at Estes Park was perfect for this transitional time. I had lots of interesting things to do and no direct responsibilities. Being in the company of a lot of good people and animals is, definitely, healing for me.

Dina, I'm working on taking it a bit easy. Mom was one of those people whose interest and engagement in life, and integrity, were constant. Life wasn't easy for her, but she met every challenge with creativity and a brave, open heart. I just try to do the same--!

Thanks so much for your support.


Love the description of your mother's "brave, open heart". What a delightful thing to be able to write about one's mother.

Just finished reading Kingsolver's Flight Behavior and was amused Carol Ekarius "Storey's Guide to Raising Sheep" credited. Always a connection somewhere, huh?

Looking forward to your post on the EPWM. You sat behind us Sunday. Weren't the lambs and kids fun?
