Hello again Petra,
Nothing to add other than my original thoughts. However would like to
add do go hear Petra speak if you get the opportunity in your area. Lots of
Arisaema slides to lust over, good presentation of information to enhance
the must-haves. Plus, one gets the opportunity to place a face and
personality with future messages on the List serve. In this case that is a
"good thing".
