I played such a small role and have felt it to be insignificant in comparison to the commitment others made.  However, I gained a vast amount from being part of the group and feel immensely fortunate to have been at Tassajara in the early days.


I was 20 years old when I first came to ZC in 1967 and I came to Tassajara, before becoming acquainted with SF-ZC.  It happened as I was living in Berkeley at the time and I was encouraged by Mel Weitsman to visit Tassajara for a weekend.  Once I got there, I didnít want to leave.  It felt like the home I had been looking for all my life.  The people, you included, felt like family that was closer to my heart of hearts than my biological family. It certainly confirmed for me where I would need to look to find birds of a feather.
