I'm inspired! Love the shoes! Can't see the condominium though. Can you post a large picture? Camille

Hi There, We working on enlarging the photo, hold please....

What an awesome inspirational story!!!

What a sweet and beautiful story! We can still find nice and honest people in this world! :D

I love the stories, Mimi you're an awesome story teller! Community always encourages me. It seems you have a folk dancing community that extends to the Czech Republic! It's interesting that our communities have gone from being our neighborhoods to our areas of interest. I've been privileged to be in a community of home birth friends years ago and now in community with my church and Christians around the world. Connection, love and honoring each other makes life so much richer. Love you!

I tried to make this comment twice. I had a couple of things to say about community and the Czech Republic but now I'm just going to say awesome story MiMi. Love you!

Tribal elders from the Tohono O’odham Nation in Arizona inspired the formation of Native Seeds/SEARCH (NS/S).

Learning to be spider -friendly; we don't even kill them in the house any more; we take them outside. Once I got over "the creeps" I found spiders come in amazing colors, sizes and shapes; and they are really interesting to watch. So proud of myself! Thanks for the article
