I'm part of the legacy Don left behind having seen his name associated with an intriguing dialogue group on Wikipedia four years ago. I emailed him requesting participation. Here's one of his posts from that last active year in the group he cofounded:

"Yes. So the question becomes how do we see ourselves, not only as others see us or how we give, meaning or value to ourselves and others. but in a more insightful way, without the culturally induced values and meanings that quietly rule us.

Of course, I have to say that this ain't easy, but it is well worth trying. And it seems to me that an "arena" such as
this list might be a good place to try it.

Dear Anna,

It was with sorrow and surprise that we just heard that Don had passed. Even though we have seen relatively little of you and Don for many years, we will miss him. Knowing Don was a gift in so many ways. His pioneering interests in the visual arts, poetry and music introduced me and many others to so many sources of pleasure that continue to this day. The freedom and challenge he provided me in the design of his house was a source of great pleasure and satisfaction. The result was, I believe, my best creation, in large part because of Don's active involvement. Most valued, of course, was his friendship over many years.

I am sorry we lost contact with you both. We tried to reach you several times, but the phone number and e-mail I had have not been active for a while. Bonny and I can be reached at (310) 474-1905 and [email protected] When you are up to it we would really like to re-establish contact.

With love,

Bonny and Dick

Our prayers are with Anna and all Don's extended family at this time. But we are moved to celebrate a diverse and interesting life rather than mourn Don passing at a good age despite health issues. Don and Anna enriched our lives in London with practical generosity. Don's accumulated wisdom showed a wide understanding of life's twisting paths and all issues were explored with a wonderful Factor humour. Don would enter into discussion on all levels and invite varying age groups to share in the fun. His friends were many and from a wide spectrum. Don and Anna were our first visitors staying in our unfinished house in Antigua in the 1990's after the volcanic eruption on Montserrat. I am happy that I was able to see Don last year. He said that if he could not remember me he was extremely glad to know me now. Don and Anna, myself and others proceeded to have a celebratory lunch. Our fond memories of Don will forever remain.
Claudia Ruth Francis and family.
