When the police arrived in LA they come to Denny's on Sunset Blvd.-I know this evening because I was the waitress with an attitude-When Sting spoke the heavens parted and there was no doubt he was to become successful. I love that he gives back and is a great example of a human being.

Trudie and I are finding it difficult to describe our feelings at the untimely passing of our great mentor, Alan York. Alan created our vineyard at Il Palagio in Tuscany, guided certainly by the principles taught by Rudolf Steiner but more than that by a lifetime of horticultural experience and an unmatched empathy with nature. Alan always put the needs of the earth first, and in so doing he became our inspiration, transforming our thinking about biodynamics and what it can achieve. His legacy will live on in the vines at our Italian home. With every visit to Il Palagio and with every sip of the great wines he helped to create, we will remember Alan's mystical connection with nature, his fantastic sense of fun, and his wonderful merry laugh. We are thinking of his dear wife Ros and the rest of family at this terribly sad time. Alan, we miss you.
