RIP: Michael Moore.
Michael Moore died 20Feb2009.
He was my teacher, a friend, and an extraordinary herbalist. His posts to various mailing lists were very both funny and informative, and he told truly awful jokes in person.
I honestly expected him to make it - alas, he didn't. He will be sorely missed.
I expect Donna still has enormous hospital bills to pay - Adam Seller wrote to tell me that the hospital bills are covered; that Donna is open to donations to continue Michael's projects; and that Donna, for the moment, needs some rest to be with her grief.
There will be a fundraiser in April in Truth or Consequences.
On another note, and in honor of Michael, I wish to introduce Appreciate a Herbalist Week. Please let at least one herbalist you respect know how much you appreciate them and what they do, and why.
While I think enough of us told that to Michael Moore while he was still among us, there are many herbalists who are all too rarely appreciated.
Let's warm the cockles of their hearts!
