hi Karen --

What Deb said -- if you know anyone traveling to the DR who could bring seeds in with them, we could send them a bunch of donation seeds to bring in!

So glad to hear from you, Karen.  What a mess.  Sending good vibes for a rapid recovery on all fronts.

Need seed or anything else we could send you?  Is it possible to get packages?

Thanks, Mike, for shouting out to Karen through the list.  I miss this community.

Warmth to all,

Karen! very glad to hear that at least you're unhurt and have water and shelter.

I don't know what to say about what sounds like nearly unimaginable damage, in Dominica and elsewhere. But that is an amazing ending to your email, full of song and stars.

Ah, Mike. Finally have some limited and erratic email capacity via cell phone. Thanks so much for your sweet note.  We're coping. Scenario is unbelievably awful but we are luckier than many -- Alive, uninjured, house with roof, water, used to hard work and in the country, not city.  Farm and home garden destroyed, along with all Dominica's agriculture but we are making strides with the massive clean-up and have been replanting short and midterm crops at home garden to help with current and continuing food crisis. Farm accessible only with Herculean effort to get over and through the downed and hanging rainforest trees.  May be months yet before electricity returns.  Weather continues to be freaky.-- crazy wind, blazing sun and no shade as most trees gone and those that survived stripped of everything except trunks. But green starting to spread as trees leaf out. Even flowers on the denuded fruit trees that survived. And the nights are full of frog and insect song and, with no lights, full of stars.
