Salt Spring has been her home, on and off, for the last 35 years. The people and the land of Salt Spring had a deep impact on who aRA saw herself to be, as well as her visions and dreams for the world. aRA did many things in her life, everything from fishing on seine boats to following spirit in the desert. She had a deep love of life and for the earth and was able to see the core of each person she encountered. aRA believed in the potential of humanity and hoped someday to see that potential expressed. Now she will be watching from the other side. We love you aRA and will never forget your beauty, love and the fire that burned within you.
