I just come from reading your blog on wordpress. Could you post an update? I'm concerned as I made a reserch on cancer when my mother in law had one in the ovaries.

At that time I was very much into natural and oriental therapies and holistic health, and i feel i should share some of the infos and conclusions i got on the matter. But before I say anything, I'd like to know how you are now. If you do post, please leave a message her for me. thankyou.

Thankyou for the friendship Karen! I have gone through your website, I was amazed to read your story and about your mission and I got the inspiration to pass on an idea. About 20 years ago I started a fairtrade shop in the community where I was living, in a mountain valley of the Italian Alps, I have the feeling of what you are doing and I'd like to share my experience. As the local community was not a rich one, but had a lot of unemploied people, beside the global fair trade products we had a section in our shop where handmade crafts and natural foods made by local people were sold at a fair price.
This opportunity offered to local people created an incentive to start small workshops producing high quality stuff and jobless became crafters and organic farmers and welthy people were happy to buy their stuff to help their local community.
But,.... may be you are already doing it....

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit,

and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
