I came across a poem you wrote in high school("Traitor")that always impressed me. I guess I was thinking about that as I had emailed Rick Gump about our 50th class reunion. It's far off (although time passes quickly!), but it occurred to me that it might be interesting to invite people to contribute to an anthology as we approach this event. Some, like yourself, already have a body of work from which you might like to submit an excerpt, but others may simply want to jot down remembrances or short reflections on where life has led them, what's been learned along the way, etc. What do you think?

Carol, I read your Introduction in YOUR ANSWERS QUESTIONED and thought it was great--nice voice and poignant. I even quoted you in an email to a friend (uh, did I break any copyright law?) You can read some of my stuff at, including pieces involving Osho, such as "A Second-Hand Emotion," "An Osho Moment," "The Field" and more.
