Please read her poem that she wrote about High Park:
There is an old Celtic saying
that heaven and earth are only three feet apart,
but in "thin places" that distance is even smaller;
the centuries drop away
and raise the veil separating us from ancient splendour.
A thin place requires us to step from one world to another.
It is no wonder
that thin places are most often associated with wild landscapes.
High Park has many thin places where there is beauty below us,
beauty above us and beauty all around.
We sense the sacred
in a blue heron taking flight from Grenadier pond;
we find it in the fragrance of the Sweet Fern
and the Sassafrass Grove below West Road;
it's in the knowledge
of a million year old glacial river coursing beneath us
or in the fragile beauty of a Blue Hare-bell
and Upright White Morning Glory at the feet of ancient Oaks
that lift our eyes to the sky.
Being in High Park is a way of coming home to ourselves.

A celebration of Dagmar's life...
A memorial gathering and celebration of Dagmar's life will be held on Sunday, June 6, 2010 in her beloved garden in the courtyard at 100 Bain Ave. The party begins at 4:30 pm and will continue on until...? All are welcome.
There will be food, wine and song. It was Dagi's wish that it be a potluck so please bring whatever you would like (sorry, - please don't bring any alcohol – we’ll make sure there is a good supply). And bring your memories of Dagmar to share with all of her friends and family.
A tribute page has been set up at dagi.muchloved.com You are welcome to leave messages, poems, stories and photos to share.
Thanks from the Friends of Dagmar
