I gave most of my books away but still have a treasured copy of her Wanderers in the New Forest. In my (much) younger days, we used to get her special herb muesli for our dogs. They thought nowt of it at all, but I tried to make them eat it because I was such a fan of hers. I learned a lot about caring for infants from her. With my first baby, the breastfeeding went wrong. Juliette said you shouldn't give babies dried cows milk for a number of good reasons, not the least being that she pointed out the milk of a cow was designed to grow something the size of a bullock in a year; and she said if you can't breastfeed you should give your baby fresh live milk from one animal - they should have the vibrations of one animal, not the confusion of a herd. She recommended goats. So we (in our tiny row house in this seaside town) embarked on keeping goats, which we took for walks in the hedgerows and forests to brows, one to feed our baby and the other for company for the first one. I think I could say Juliette influenced me substantially, and her advice still comes often to my mind. Wise, unique, amazing - I'm proud to have been here during her lifetime even if I never met her.
My friend Julie Graff posted this wonderful film about her on Facebook, and I've brought it across here so I can watch it as often as I like :0)
