Bob and I are still here in Juneau– grandparents to 3 and working on peace and justice issues, etc. I’m still working my psychothrapy practice and Bob is retired. All is well and hope you and family are thriving. I read all about your nepal project and love it! We were in India recently for 6 wks. at our former Peace Corps village and Buddhist monesteries. Warmly, Elaine
