Though I last visited Stephen in 1993,I always read his blogs and will miss his take on current events.During my years on the Farm I saw Stephen almost every day working at the Book Company.Some of my favorite Farm memories are of my weekly stints as overnite security at the Book Company.Stephen would at times come down and hang out in his upstairs office ,just to take a short quiet break from his large not so quiet household.We never talked about anything profound or spiritual,that was his day job.My best memory was Stephen explaining how "The Dukes Of Hazzard"plotlines were stolen from Tolstoy and Dickens novels.Thanks for making our world a damn sight more interesting.

Thank you Stephen for being my spiritual teacher when I needed guidance so much. You're down to earth sunday morning talks kept me emotionally rooted during a personal and historical time of turmoil. Nothing is perfect, but the Farm was exactly what I needed to open my eyes to another way of thinking and being. Rest in Peace.

Our condolences to Ina May and family.
There were a lot of gurus to choose from out there back then but Stephen Gaskin was by far the most American of the bunch and that felt real and a little like home. It did feel hopeful to take him on as a teacher especially in light of being horrified by the war and disaffected with America. But what I liked a lot was the reminder of the true goodness in the American tradition that was "living without royalty and respecting other peoples' religions." Stephen reminded us and was descended from American free thinkers. That takes courage. It was a lot of fun and very mind expanding. It felt very American to be that hip. It was hip to be that kind of an American.

Thanks Steven for the vision in welcoming all to the community. My brother Bob Glass had a wonderful fulfilling life because of the farm. You will be missed but not forgotten.
