1) a wonderful lunch with Carolyn Toben and Anita McLeod at Timberlake Farm (Whitsett, NC), where the Center for Education, Imagination and the Natural World holds its varied programs.
We had come unannounced, hesitated slightly at the entrance when we read a large sign: Visitors by Appointment Only, forged ahead anyway, and were very warmly welcomed. Our time there was truly blessed - good food, engaging conversation, story sharing, and a grand tour of the farm.
