As Life Unfolds ...


When we went back to Western Canada this year to visit family and friends, we didn’t know how much cleansing, healing and enlightening

was waiting for us there....

it brings endless surprises!


My dedications written in the signed copies given to Greenpeace:

Oakee Doakee and the Hate Wave:

"for Greenpeace

with memories of spending my childhood summers with the McTaggart family as neighbours at Buccaneer Bay in the sixties,

and marching to the Peace Arch in the early seventies to stop the Amchitka bomb,

and walking door to door in the Lower Mainland selling memberships in the early eighties,

and following the wisdom of the I-Ching*

Best wishes,

Ed Saugstad"


Oakee Doakee and the Ego Bomb:

(actually written back in the mid-nineties as a protest against France's last atomic test in the South Pacific)

"May your peace be evergreen

Best wishes,

Ed Saugstad"


(*Captain McTaggart spent summer vacations at Buccaneer Bay, and the Amchitka protest marked the birth of the Greepeace movement. They used to consult the I-Ching at their first headquarters in Kitsilano.)
