June 29 -- To the Editor:

I just need a break from all of the political angst that perpetually assaults us. Susan Pikes columns are a great delight as an alternative. She speaks of the natural world around us that we so easily overlook. She never fails to be informative and stir ones curiosity to look a little closer at what surrounds us. Her columns are much appreciated and I look forward to them each week!
