We were delighted to visit our friend Marguerite, who I met at a Joanna Macy intensive 6 weeks ago. Marguerite and her family live in the steep hillside of Piedmont near the town of Ivrea, Italy. We were welcomed into her home, an old farmhouse that has been converted into their living quarters where she creates her art. See http://www.kahrl.com.

We explored the many old villages and braved the narrow windy roads of Piedmont in our Fiat 500. We also visited Marguerite's friend Ellen Berman, who is creating a permaculture environment on land she has recently purchased. Ellen and Marguerite were planning a permaculture workshop incorporating the Work That Reconnects.
