We used to say we were brothers or cousins when we could get away with it. Now John Dancy-Jones, teacher, papermaker, bookmaker (of the honest sort), artist and arts supporter, is featured in a long profile in the News and Observer. The article is good and long overdue. There are few like John D-J and we need many more.
UPDATE: John is working on a blog-to-book project called: The Natural History of Raleigh. You can learn a good deal of the secret natural areas of Raleigh there as well as the plants and animals found around town. John especially loves and can usually find turtles.
