    Very interesting person who explains things in a pleasant manner. Not a lot of concrete details about how we get started relocalizing our hometowns but I’ll take a look at her websites and books for that. I think interviews with elderly but active folks are very good because of all their life experiences they share. Thanks Jim.

    I was not familiar with her, but what a breath of fresh air. And at 78, she brings a lot of experience, wisdom and lifelong learning to the table. She cites 2 websites and several of her books for more information. JHK did a good job of asking the right questions and letting her do most of the talking, in a delightful British-Aussie twang.

    Thanks for this conversation. I really enjoyed it and look forward to checking out the websites and videos she has. And there’s a Swedish twang in there, Tom!

    Very good, and I agree with much of what she says. But really, the localization lady, born in Sweden, lives in England and Australia?
