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.

Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive

Hey y'all,

I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few days ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big a Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $300 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight June 1st. Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
Big Easy Magazine
