Arol died on June 6th, 2012. She was 73.

May her soul rest in peace. May her complicated legacy turn to renewing humus, as it composts.

Wow, I just spent over an hour reading here. I spent just less than 2 years at Zendik Farm, in California and Bastrop. How can 2 short years of my life haunt me for so long? The time there was mostly good. I learned so much about health, gardening, to not be so caught up in myself, and was set free from some burdens. At the end though the burdens came back.. in the form of Arol and Kare. The philosophy also started to not ring true. The straw that broke it was a day when I made sure all the random small kids were out of the way of the truck I was driving, even getting the loose roaming toddlers into the cab, and then I backed over a dog. It was not hurt badly, but I was treated as an evil person for doing it, never mind I made sure the HUMANS were safe.. the putting forward of animals before people was enough for me. I had other things convincing me also, on the spiritual side, but that is another story. Now 21 years later, I read that Arol is gone. You peg her perfectly in you FAQ's. I still feel a small sense of loss though. I cannot even imagine how this place still haunts you, who were there for so much longer and invested so much more of yourself. I have not had anyone to talk to about this for all these years, glad to find you. The book will be about your time there? there are people that were there that I sure wish I knew where they were or how they were doing. Shey? Ix?
thank you-Kari

Hi Kari. Thanks for writing. Yes, the book is about my time at Zendik. Feel free to email me (madgelma[at]hotmail.com) for info about, or help getting in touch with, particular people from the Farm.
