A tree for Steven

In a windy open field by Sacred Groves friends and volunteers gathered for a small memorial tree planting ceremony for Steven. Steven's brilliance, humor and personality were hard to forget despite his short and colorful life that ended 20 years ago. For those of us that knew him a palpable sense of "at last" was felt, by this acknowledgment. The gentle and willing presence of the Sacred Grove volunteers attending the ceremony, gave me a sense of that impersonal Auroville intimacy which makes this dream eternal. A memory book can be found at the Auroville library. This ceremony took place on Jan 31st 2015.
