  4. Not to shift the focus from this remarkable accomplishment (congratulations!) and inspiring dedication, but I want to give thanks to Sayaka Yamaki for pointing me to this article. Sayaka has a sincere passion for showcasing her colleagues’ accomplishments and connecting people to the resources that can help them, and she’s incredibly good at it. Thank you Sayaka, for stopping me on Comm Ave to tell me about this, it made my day!

  5. Books plus plants equal serenity & happiness
    Wonderful story to share and work produces such
    beauty! This video & article will be shared. When
    I paint gardens and orchards – other landscapes
    with vegetation I feel personalities within each
    flower, ornamental grass or tree. It happens when we
    allow it !
