Having just read Parker Palmer’s speech, “A Great People to be Gathered,” for the occasion of the 80th Anniversary of the Quaker Community at Pendle Hill and being moved, once again, by his challenge to Quaker ideals of simplicity in community, it was a joy to meet Janet Greenleaf and visit her home here in Chiangmai. Janet has lived and worked in Thailand for many, many years and has made a conscious decision to live simply. Her home was originally located at McKean Rehabilitation Institute and was later moved to a nearby compound. Her walls are covered with lovely treasures (artifacts, art, and gifts) from the USA, Israel and Thailand. (I have included some thumbnail photos of her treasures below.) Being in her home conveys a sense of warmth and intimacy that is rare. Mom and I enjoyed the evening, enjoyed meeting her two cats, sharing a meal with her and learning more about her many interests.
