Dear Robert and Barbara,
It is Earth Day today... and I determined that to honor the occasion, I would read through the Robert Muller file I've had in my filing cabinet for the past 26 years.
What a genuinely GREAT idea that was!
Among other documents, I found several letters written to you, Robert, that were never sent. I don't know why. I apparently wasn't happy with my choice of words and then got swept into the rush of life again. Those years?1978 to the mid-80s?were very busy years for me.... and truthfully, I was overwhelmed that you, Robert, as busy a man as you've been all of your life, would take the time to write to me at all.
I remain overwhelmed and want you to know that I treasure every stroke of the pen you layed on every sheet of paper in my file. Gold.
I pray that you both are well and continuing your good work. It would be wonderful to have an update... as we've been out of contact since the late 90s.
Oh, I want you to know that I've written Dennis Kucinich, Congressman who bid for the Democratic party's presidential nomination this past year. You may be aware of his good work. http://www.kucinich.us/
He is working now on a Bill that will create a U.S. Department of peace. I introduced him to you, provided both of your addresses in Costa Rica and California and encouraged him to make contact (if he has not already done so. A snip from his website:

Creating a Culture of Peace
This September, legislation will be introduced to create a cabinet-level Department of Peace....
I continue to publish the Dream Network/15 years now. We have just recently redesigned our website. I hope you'll pay a visit soon. If you choose to do so, pay particular attention to the Visionary Dreams/bottom page.
YOU, Dr. Muller, are my Earth Day Celebration. Barbara, I hope we shall someday meet as well. In fact, as soon as I bid you Adios, I'm going to see if I can find your website. I found a letter from Renee M. Cooper in my RM file, written in April, 1995. The last paragraph reads:
"Also, Barbara Gaughen, president and owner of Gaughen Public Relations, will be calling you in a few days. Ironically, she was just meeting with several department heads of the United Nations and discovered that some of them are very into dream analysis and that Robert Muller, a former UN dignitary and chancellor of the University of peace, is currently writing a book on dreams."
A deep pleasure talking with you. I am grateful!
