Thank you so much for thinking of me and my book, Living Food, Love is the Answer. Hopefully it will be a reality soon. All of the publishers are in New York, so if I go to New York sometime soon, maybe we can talk or have a raw food meal together.

I am sending you copies of my recipes for a 100% Thanksgiving Dinner. I did a presentation recently at the SF LIFE potluck, and it was a great sucess. Everyone loved the recipes.
