"For memory has painted this perfect day with colors that never fade, and we find at the end of a perfect day the soul of a friend we've made."
(Carne Jacobs Bond)

During the years that Mother's Tours have been helping folks explore the far corners of the earth, we've been impressed over and over again by how downright wonderful our readers are to travel with. You people — adventurous, diverse, hardy, open-minded, talented, slow to complain, and quick to laugh — have filled our trips with wisdom, love, knowledge, and companionship that, in retrospect, has often outshone even the most spectacular places we've visited. It isn't surprising, then, that our travels have resulted in readers' entering into deep friendships, business partnerships, and even marriages.

And this rare fellowship has never been stronger than it became during our recent visit to the New Age community of Findhorn in northern Scotland and our subsequent stay on the Hebridean island of Erraid, a childhood home of Robert Louis Stevenson. (Look for a report about life on this enchanted isle in our next issue.) In fact, the trip was so fulfilling, and so many people who wanted to go were unable to do so because the tour was already filled up, that we're making plans for a return visit to Findhorn and Erraid in June 1983. The timing will allow us to celebrate Midsummer's Eve in a land that still retains much of the magic of its Celtic past.


There are many good reasons to take a trip through the French countryside: the fine food, the superb wines, the impressive historical landmarks, and the joie de vivre of that land's people . . . and MOTHER's second Energy Tour of France (to run October 14 to 24, 1982) will allow participants to enjoy all those things, on a journey that will take them from Luxembourg to Spain and from Andorra to Switzerland.
