Tribute from Priscilla Galasso

Jamie is the most inspiring mentor I never met. 

I’m not sure how she discovered my blog, except that she must have been seeking it somehow. She seems to have had the wisdom to know that she had valuable seeds to plant and so shamelessly spread them over the landscape, believing there was fertile soil under foot. My, how those little seedlings sprang up all over the planet!

Having sown and seen sprouts, she created a hothouse where creativity could flourish. She encouraged me to write, prompting and inviting me, and then actually published what I sent back. She went even further, giving me the opportunity to assume the editor role. Eventually, I began to realize that she was cultivating a global field full of blossoming writers. 

Her carry capacity was huge, and the biodiversity that flourished beneath her shining example remains robust.

Rest in Peace, Sustainability, and Social Justice, dear Friend. You will be missed and never forgotten.

The focus of "The BeZine," a publication of The Bardo Group Beguines, is on sacred space (common ground) as it is expressed through the arts. Our work covers a range of topics: spirituality, life, death, personal experience, culture, current events, history, art, and photography and film. We share work here that is representative of universal human values however differently they might be expressed in our varied religions and cultures. We feel that our art and our Internet-facilitated social connection offer a means to see one another in our simple humanity, as brothers and sisters, and not as “other.” This is a space where we hope you’ll delight in learning how much you have in common with “other” peoples. We hope that your visits here will help you to love (respect) not fear. For more see our Info/Mission Statement Page.
