When asked about her impossible dream, Jinn says the following: “I’d like to finish my book “Everything Lost Comes to the Intersection” in Estonia in 2024 as a UNESCO writer in residence! But perhaps that’s a possible dream. Like Ron, I have spent my life dreaming and making those dreams come true. One of my current “impossible dreams” is inspiring–by example–my neighbors to return their yards to biodiverse habitats….feeding themselves and the natural world. This dream has been some 20 years in the making. I was deeply encouraged by how many folks in Tartu are committed to growing fruit, vegetables, and flowers in an urban environment.
