  1. The link works now. A lovely interview, giving a warm and informative impression of you and the home you created. Striking, how the testing and intense process of producing your visionary and amazing book is mirrored by the beautiful reclamation of these barns, a wonderful achievement.

  2. You are most generous. It all looks serene now! As perhaps the book does, no evidence of the furious paddling below…or the doubt that it would ever be achieved. Just a tragedy that the use for which is was created ( a home away from any metropolis for art and artists to create and drink wine together) never happened. Hope that will not also be true of the new born book!
