One more thing to add in personal reflection:
This news has been with me today as I make my regular trips out to collect 
the seeds that are ready on my plants out back.
It's a wonderful bonding experience I am having with the plants and Frank, 
this list, and my dreams.
Frank was more of a foraging type, but also visited the cultivated plants in 
the greenhouse at Finca AMRTA in Costa Rica.
There, they have to cultivate the dandelions which grow uncontrollably well 
in many parts of North America. Frank spoke reverentially of the dandelion, 
calling it, if I recall correctly a queen of herbs.
On Facebook, there are short clips of Frank well worth watching, 
particularly the nettles and the pine tree.

Frances

P.S. I keep thinking that I'm communicating with Keith 'off list', but nope, 
it's always coming back to me through the list! So, while we're on the list, 
anyone else have any recollections/connections to share?
