Community co-founder Dorothy Maclean celebrates her 92nd birthday on 7 January, and her presence as she walks through The Park each day, taking her exercise and stopping frequently to enjoy the surroundings, is still an inspiration for me as I watch her make her way.
She prefers to spend her time being quiet and being with her close friends nearby and rarely steps into the limelight. She can, in fact, be shy. But at the same time her humour and the twinkle in her eyes invites you into a warm relationship.
It is an important moment for the community as we celebrate our 50th anniversary year and look forward to the next phase of our collective life, and I am hugely grateful that Dorothy has returned to Findhorn to live here and to be with us for this event. She is the last remaining founder, still sharing her inspiration ongoing, and we continue to benefit from her experience and dedication.
Happy birthday Dorothy!
