Sharing with you a person I “met” through his site. Have emailed, inviting him to “visit” ES with photos, of which he has a whole lot of wealth. From orchids, to how to make Middle Eastern yoghurt, and … [the reason I found the site… ] what the “reflex arc” (in physiology and psychology) is all about. About the last one of which founder of educational philosophy John Dewey had a number of memorable things to say.

He responded, YES!!! So more coming up.

Update: Jan 25, 2012

Happy to introduce a rich life through a website’s photographic eye: pix 1-3 below from site, #4 is my screen shot. CLICK on image to go there.

My exchanges with Prof Fankhauser, to my greatest delight ecosonic, if I may make the claim.

Dear Prof Fankhauser,

If I may, “Joy to the world!” to your reply. By “find” I meant your
life, as reflected by your site. Since all I do, think,… breathe, if
you like, is potentially research, I am posting this exchange–as an
illustration of ecosonic communication–editing out anything (except
David B. Fankhauser, PhD) in the way of “personal info,” even what can
be found by following the link to your site–if a visitor to ES
opts to make the effort.

The part below I can edit back in, with your permission:
[giving here sig file info]

I’ll be in touch–
Lynne Alexandrova
