Horticulture of a Healer

Her Green Thumb

Heals the land she graces,

Her open heart,

Loves the people she faces.


Her laugh,

Her voice,

Her smile,

Lift up the spirits of all the folks.

Her flawless sense of style,

Is matched only by her wit,



She is of the Earth,

Yet she is of spirit.

Hers is always sage advice,

Even when it’s hard to hear it.

Although her feet are on the ground,

And her head is in the sky,

Her heart is the meeting place for both,

A well-grounded spiritualist, by and by.

Joining together a variety of folks,

Filling others with passion and worth,

Making bloom both plants and hopes,

She is a blessing upon this Earth.

Hey guys!

We’re so grateful to our friends, our families, our neighbors, and especially our readers for chipping in, sharing, and donating to the cause of local progressive media. Your support has lifted us up so much and will most assuredly not be lost or forgotten.

If you care about local independent progressive media in an era where multi-millionaires such as John Georges are monopolizing our local press, then please donate any amount you can to make our operation a success. We can do this! Do not give up.

What else can you do if you’ve already donated and can’t donate anymore? Share our content on Facebook and tell people about our fundraising operation. Call and email others who may be able to give. We believe in you because you believe in us and together we can ensure Big Easy Magazine becomes a progressive icon for New Orleans and an inspiration for the expansion of progressive media around the world.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
