“He has traveled the intellectual and spiritual Realms of Consciousness looking for what is true and real and just and meaningful and good. And then he brought it down to earth and made it real in the material world.  That’s what Piñon was about –building a bridge to a noble vision. The yin and the yang, the compassionate balance point. A sacred community where respect is rampant and the bottom line thrives as love fueled clumps of grass break through the concrete pavement of institutionalization.”
